Yonekura Ryoko to make her return in the drama SP of "Doctor X" this year
Yonekura Ryoko will be reprising her role as a freelance surgeon in a new drama SP of the hit TV Asahi drama series "Doctor X ~ Gekkai Daimon Michiko ~ SP" this year. This will be the first drama SP so far even though there have been three full drama series to date. Filming is due to begin at the end of this month in Kanazawa and describes the battle between the surgical and internal medicine departments. Co-stars include Uchida Yuki, Kishibe Ittoku, Endo Kenichi, Katsumura Masanobu, Suzuki Kosuke and Nishida Toshiyuki.
Even though Yonekura had intended to end the series by season 3 which was shown in autumn 2014, she decided to take on the drama SP again after reading the script and feeling the anticipation from the people around her.
