Screening event of TBS Spring 2016 drama "99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi"

The screening event of TBS Spring 2016 drama "99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi" was held on 14 April which was attended by cast members Matsumoto Jun, Eikura Nana, Aoki Munetaka, Katagiri Jin, Maggy, Watanabe Machiko, Okuda Eiji and Kishibe Ittoku. Kagawa Teruyuki was absent during the event as he was away for a kabuki performance but had a pre-recorded video message played to the audience. Despite having only 325 vacancies for the screening event, the TV station received applications amounting to 40 times more than the available number of slots.

As this is the first time which Matsumoto is playing a lawyer, he commented that to be able to play such a role at this stage of his career was something he was really happy about and he hopes to make this his signature role. In addition, since the story is an original one, he hopes to be able to work with the crew and co-stars to find the best way to present the story to the viewers and find that elusive 0.1% to make this a successful drama.
