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.
