Kikukawa Rei as the lead in FujiTV drama SP "Ichinenhan Mate"
Kikukawa Rei will be the lead in the upcoming FujiTV drama SP "Ichinenhan Mate" (Wait for one and a half years) which will be shown on 15 April at 9pm. The drama SP which is based on the same-titled novel by the late Matsumoto Seicho and has been adapted more than 10 times to date, will adopt the viewpoint of the lawyer Takimori Takiko rather than from the murder suspect Sumura Satoko. Kikukawa plays the lead character Takimori who defends Sumura (Ishida Hikari) in court as the latter is on trial for killing her husband who was unemployed, an alcoholic and violent towards his wife and son. This is the 5th Matsumoto Seicho production which Kikukawa has participated in to date.
