Further cast announcements for FujiTV Spring 2014 drama "Zoku Saigo kara nibanme no koi" - UPDATED

Hasegawa Kyoko will be playing the potential love interest of Nakai Kiichi in the new FujiTV Spring 2014 drama "Zoku Saigo kara nibanme no Koi" which will begin its run from 17 April in the Thursdays 10pm timeslot. She will play the role of Harada Kaoruko who is the mother of Wappei's (Nakai) daughter's boyfriend and is the exact opposite of Chiaki (Koizumi Kyoko) in terms of character and seen to be more compatible with Wappei since they are both widows.

In addition, Chiaki's former boyfriend who is younger than her will be played by Kase Ryo while Wappei's boss who is the Kamakura city mayor will be played by Shibata Rie.

Kase who plays the role of Takayama Ryota, is constantly referred to as the "Post-It Boyfriend" and the sequel will explain what led to this nickname. Ryota had won a scenario contest in the past but is now an unsuccessful scriptwriter. Although he and Chiaki are 12 years apart in age, they started dating and living together. However, in just three days, Ryota left a post-it note saying sorry and that he couldn't live with Chiaki anymore. As a result, he earned the nickname of "Post-It Boyfriend" and caused Chiaki to be so shocked that she can't even use post-it notes anymore. At the end of the first episode, his sudden reappearance will surprise Chiaki who has no idea what he wants.
