Wakui Emi will be joining the cast of FujiTV Winter 2016 drama "Otousan to yobasete" which will begin its run from 19 January 2016 in the Tuesdays 10pm timeslot. This will be her first time in 12 years to work with Watabe Atsuro when they last appeared in the Autumn 2003 drama "Koibumi ~ Watashitachi ga aishita Otoko ~". Wakui will be taking on the role of Shizuka, Hanasawa Kiichiro's (Watabe) wife and Miran's (Renbutsu Misako) mother who is supportive of her husband's career and takes good care of her three children. However, she has a secret which is unknown to her family and it slowly gets revealed after Miran introduces her boyfriend Tamotsu (Endo Kenichi) to the family.
Wakui commented that she is eagerly looking forward to working with Watabe again in this drama but feels a bit nervous about doing comedy. Nonetheless, she will try her best to meet up to expectations.
