Production press conference of TV Asahi Winter 2015 drama "Second Love"

The production press conference of TV Asahi Winter 2015 drama "Second Love" was held at the TV station on 2 Feb which was attended by the leads Kamenashi Kazuya and Fukada Kyoko. The drama which begins its run from 6 Feb at 11.15pm on Fridays, is written by Oishi Shizuka and features Kamenashi as a talented dancer who gets into a passionate relationship with a senior school teacher who's older than him (Fukada). However, things get complicated as she is also involved in an extramarital affair with her colleague.

Oishi complimented Kamenashi for being very sexy in the drama while he commented that he was shocked each time when he got the scripts because the story is very intense and there are many scenes where he has to appear topless. As such, Kamenashi jokingly said that he hopes to become know as the sex symbol in Johnny's Jimusho through this drama. On the other hand, Fukada who also has many intimate scenes, commented that the lines in the drama are very provocative and she hoped that she will achieve new heights in her career through this drama.

I'm really looking forward to this drama however I don't get why they need to mention that she is older then him, coz they are 2-3 years apart.

I think it's just another factor thrown into the equation by the scriptwriter in a bid to make the relationship more "scandalous" other than the fact that Fukada's character is the lover of a married man. Although the age difference between them is not that great, it's probably a gimmick to grab more attention and increase interest so as to entice people to watch the drama. If you look at the cast lineup, Fukada's married lover is played by Namase Katsuhisa who's much older than her so Kamenashi being at the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of age serves as a contrast to make the story look even more sensational.
