Koshiba Fuka to act in FujiTV Spring 2016 drama "Hayako-sensei, Kekkon surutte hontou desuka?"

Koshiba Fuka will be acting in the FujiTV Spring 2016 drama "Hayako-sensei, Kekkon surutte hontou desuka" starring Matsushita Nao which will begin its run from April in the Thursdays 10pm timeslot. This being her first drama series since her senior high school graduation, Koshiba will be playing a newbie teacher Akigawa Riri who works in the infirmary at the same school where Tachiki Hayako (Matsushita) works at. Despite her young age of 22 and her demure appearance, Riri is aggressive and takes the initiative to achieve her goal of getting married but tends to be clumsy when she's actually in a relationship. While her youthful appearance makes her endearing to the students, the children at the upper levels make fun of and tease her at the same time.

Koshiba revealed that the director initially tried to bluff her into thinking that she was going to be offered the role of a primary school student due to her young appearance so she hopes that by wearing spectacles and dressing appropriate for her character, she will look more convincing at a teacher in the drama.
