Production press conference of FujiTV Spring 2015 drama "Kokoro ga Pokitto ne"

The production press conference of FujiTV Spring 2015 drama "Kokoro ga Pokitto ne" was held on 31 March which was attended by the leads Abe Sadao, Mizuhara Kiko, Fujiki Naohito and Yamaguchi Tomoko. The drama which begins its run from 8 April in the Wednesdays 10pm timeslot, is written by Okada Yoshikazu and features the four leads with psychological ailments of their own who are caught in a love web.

Abe revealed that when he took up the role, he thought it would be a good chance for him to speak freely since this is a love comedy involving adults. However, it turned out that his role is a person who becomes withdrawn into his own world due to stress from overwork so he remains silent most of the time. As such, in the first episode, the majority of his lines was just "iya". Nonetheless, he is still enjoying the filming despite being unable to speak as much as he wishes. When asked if he has any experience of feeling as if his heart had snapped, Abe said that if anyone is to tell him that he or she is going to watch "Dr. Rintaro" this season, he would be quite upset and so he vows to work hard to prevent that from happening. Dr. Rintaro is NTV's Spring 2015 offering in the same timeslot this season as "Kokoro ga Pokitto ne". On the other hand, Yamaguchi who plays Abe's ex-wife and Fujiki's current girlfriend, said that it is an exactly different story for her because she has a lot of lines to say in the drama so she's working very hard to memorise them.

Hmm... okay, now I'm cautiously optimistic that this might work out better than I thought. Fingers crossed anyhow! At least there's one spring drama to sort of look forward to, since it doesn't look like Tamaki is in any of the spring dramas, sigh. Hope Fujiki won't be the bad guy or jealous second lead or something!
