Production press conference of NHK drama SP "Sono hi no mae ni"

The production press conference of NHK drama SP "Sono hi no mae ni" was held on 24 February which was attended by the lead actor Sasaki Kuranosuke. The two-part SP will be shown on 23rd and 30th March at 10pm via NHK and is based on the novel by Shigematsu Kiyoshi.

Sasaki plays the role of a former salaryman who becomes a freelance illustrator while his wife is played by Dan Rei. However, when his wife is diagnosed with terminal cancer and only has a year left to live, Sasaki's character reflects on his life so far with his wife and thinks about how he is going to live on with his two sons after his wife passes away. Sasaki related that when he was reading the script, he was crying once every five minutes and he hopes that he would have been able to convey the theme of the story to the viewers so that they can see the hope in living on despite the loss of someone precious in the family.
