First-day-screening event of new movie "Itamu Hito"

The first-day-screening event of new movie "Itamu Hito" was held at Marunouchi TOEI 1 on 14 February which was attended by cast members Kora Kengo, Ishida Yuriko, Kanjiya Shihori, Shiina Kippei, Iura Arata, Otake Shinobu and the director Tsutsumi Yukihiko. The movie which is based on Tendo Arata's Naoki Award-winning novel, features Kora as a young man who goes on a journey to mourn the dead while Ishida plays his travel companion who is a former convict that had killed her husband. Through their journey, they gain new perspectives of life and death and family bonds.

As this movie is the first work of Kora in his 10th anniversary as an actor, he commented that it was a tough filming period for him so he is especially glad to see that the film is finally released. As for Ishida who had made a direct request to participate in this film because she is a fan of the novel, she also expressed her joy at the movie being available for the public to see.

As the first-day-screening coincided with Valentine's Day, the cast members all gave Kora chocolates which was a surprise to him. He expressed his thanks and gratitude to his co-stars about how much he was loved by them and apologised for his relatively mild reaction because he had never expected this and was too stunned.
