Production press conference & screening of TV Tokyo Winter 2015 "Kaiki Renai Sakusen"

The production press conference and screening of TV Tokyo's Winter 2015 drama "Kaiki Renai Sakusen" was held on 8 Jan which was attended by Aso Kumiko, Nakamura Toru, Sakai Maki, Ogawa Tamaki and Keralino Sandrovich. The drama which begins its run from 9 Jan in the Fridays 12.12am timeslot, is written by Sandrovich who spent 2.5 years working on it and he also makes a return to acting in dramas for the first time in 8 years. Aso plays the lead character who can see supernatural phenomena and said that this drama is very different but hopes that viewers would be receptive of it. As for the ratings, Aso said that she is aiming for 3%.

Nakamura who plays Aso's childhood friend and provides much comical relief in the drama, commented that while filming this drama, it's a constant battle with his sense of embarrassment . In response to Aso's target of 3% for the ratings, he consoled himself by saying that it's OK if 97% of the viewers don't watch this drama so that they won't see what he had to put himself through. He even mentioned that he doesn't wish to promote this drama too much for fear that it would "affect" the type of roles he gets in future. In response, Sakai commented that Nakamura is a perfect match for his role but he told her not to say such things anymore because he doesn't want more people sharing her view.
