First-day-screening event of movie "Mugiko-san to"

The first-day-screening of movie "Mugiko-san to" was held at Theatre Shinjuku on 21 December which was attended by the cast Horikita Maki, Matsuda Ryuhei and Yo Kimiko as well as the director Yoshida Keisuke. Horikita commented that they started the year 2013 filming this movie so it was great to be able to finish up the year with the film's release. When asked to reflect on her busy year, Horikita described that it felt really long but used the word "Raku" (happiness) to sum up her year in a single Kanji character since she had many opportunities to do various things. As for Matsuda who plays her elder brother in the movie, he used the word "En" (fate) to describe his year filled with awards for his performance in the movie "Fune wo Amu" and said that it was his fortune to meet and work with people who helped to bring in this success for him.

Although this was the first time that Horikita and Matsuda had worked together, she described him as a natural in acting and he felt just like her own brother in no time. Matsuda also said that Horikita did look quite scary at first because she didn't speak a lot but he started to warm up to her and treat her as his own sister once she started flashing her cute smiles at him. In defence, Horikita claimed that she did speak a lot on set but Matsuda said that she would be quite grumpy early in the morning when he greeted her so she explained that she needed time to "jump-start" her engine in the morning since they were filming during winter. Yo who plays their mother, said that the two leads resemble each other in terms of the feeling they give off and even commented that she would be one lucky mum if they are both her children.
