Press conference of TV Tokyo's 50th anniversary drama SP "Tsuyoki Ari"

The press conference of TV Tokyo's 50th anniversary drama SP "Tsuyoki Ari" was held on 30 June which was attended by the cast members Yonekura Ryoko, Hashizume Isao, Takuma Shin, Takashima Masanobu and Kaname Jun. The drama SP which will be shown at 9pm on 2 July, features Yonekura as an ambitious woman Sawada Isako who becomes the second wife of a rich company director who is 31 years older than her (Hashizume) but is unhappy about the housekeeper holding on to the finances of the family. In a bid to lay her hands on the JPY 1bn inheritance, she sets out to murder her husband. Takuma, Takashima and Kaname all play her lovers in the drama SP.

Even though this is the 5th Matsumoto Seicho drama adaptation that Yonekura has starred in and she always played evil women in these productions, she commented that she doesn't feel weird about playing such roles and has never felt uncomfortable with the idea of being seen as evil. On the contrary, she is happy about playing such characters since it offers her an avenue to let off stress and manipulate people although that's just in a fictitious world.
