Karina to make her return in TBS Autumn 2015 drama "Kekkonshiki no zenjitsu ni"
Karina will be making her return to dramaland through the TBS Autumn 2015 drama "Kekkonshiki no zenjitsu ni" (The day before the wedding) starting in October in the Tuesdays 10pm timeslot. Her last leading role was in FujiTV's 2011 drama "Watashi ga renai dekinai riyuu" while she also appeared in the same TV station's 2013 drama "SUMMER NUDE". She plays the role of Serizawa Hitomi who works as a project leader in a real estate company and is due to be married to a doctor played by Suzuki Ryohei. However, just 100 days before the wedding, she is diagnosed to be suffering from a brain tumour. Just then, she also reunites with her mother played by Harada Mieko who she had not seen for 28 years since the latter eloped with another man. Despite their distant relationship, Hitomi's mother's unconventional way of encouraging her to overcome the odds spurs Hitomi not to wallow in pity and try to be positive about her situation. Hitomi's father will be played by Endo Kenichi.
