Production press conference of FujiTV Winter 2014 drama "Shitsuren Chocolatier"

The production press conference of FujiTV Winter 2014 drama "Shitsuren Chocolatier" was held on 9 January which was attended by the cast Matsumoto Jun, Ishihara Satomi, Mizukawa Asami, Mizuhara Kiko, Mizobata Junpei and Arimura Kasumi. The drama which begins its run from 13 January at 9pm on Mondays, describes how Matsumoto's character Souta resolves to be a chocolatier for the sake of his former girlfriend Saeko played by Ishihara who dumped him before Valentine's Day and hopes to win her back despite her being married.

When asked about her Valentine's Day memories, Ishihara revealed that she used to make chocolate for four years from the first year of junior high for a senior two years older than her. However, she was shocked when that senior's buddy came to tell her that he hated chocolate. On the other hand, as there are many day-dreaming scenes by Souta where he imagines Saeko in various situations such as in a bathtub filled with chocolate, Ishihara said that it was tough having to act in those imagination scenes and said that viewers will be in for a visual treat because they will get to see the various strange facial expressions of Matsumoto.
