Ueno Juri to play Ikuta Toma's detective partner in TBS Winter 2014 drama "Ouroboros"

Ueno Juri will be playing a police detective for the first time in the upcoming TBS Winter 2014 drama "Ouroboros". Her character Hibino Mizuki is an elite detective who graduated from University of Tokyo and is the partner of Ryuzaki Ikuo (Ikuta Toma) who suspects the nature of his relationship with his childhood buddy-cum-gangster leader Danno Tatsuya (Oguri Shun). The drama will begin its run from January in the Fridays 10pm timeslot.

As this is the first time that Ueno is playing a detective, she admitted that she was a bit reluctant to take on the role at first because of the stereotypical image of a police detective i.e. serious and bent on upholding justice. However, as she found that that the character Mizuki is more to that and has to deal with conflicting emotions of taking a liking to Ryuzaki and suspecting him of doing wrong at the same time, she was attracted to this aspect of the character and decided to take on the role.

Filming begins at the beginning of this month.

Co-stars in this drama also include Yoshida Kotaro, Yoshida Yo, Takito Kenichi, Mitsuishi Ken and Seino Nana.
