Production press conference of TV Asahi Spring 2015 drama "I'm Home"

The production press conference of TV Asahi Spring 2015 drama "I'm Home" was held on 6 April which was attended by cast members Kimura Takuya, Ueto Aya, Mizuno Miki, Tanaka Kei, Suzuki Kosuke, Yoshimoto Miyu, Arai Hirofumi, Mitsuishi Ken, Watanabe Ikkei, Oikawa Mitsuhiro, Nishida Toshiyuki and child actor Takahashi Rai. The drama which will be shown from 16 April in the Thursdays 9pm timeslot, is Kimura's first TV Asahi drama series in which he takes on a leading role. As such, Kimura commented that it has been a refreshing experience to work with new people and revealed that he likes the food at TV Asahi's staff canteen. He also expressed his gratitude to the staff for their warm welcome into this new family and said that he felt like he was a transfer student when he first started filming. During the event, although there was a chair for Takahashi to sit on, he was sitting on Kimura's lap all the while. When asked about this, Kimura said that Takahashi who plays his son in the drama, preferred to be sitting on his lap so he agreed to the latter's request but commented that his right leg did feel a bit numb after a while.

Kimura and Ueto who play a married couple in the drama, had to take wedding photos to be used during the filming. Ueto said that after taking photos of her being carried by Kimura, he let her down gently which greatly impressed her. Ueto also praised Kimura for being great to work with and they also get along well outside the filming. Kimura returned the favour by saying that Ueto is as feminine as she appears to be and has a nice personality
