Inaba Yu to join the cast of NTV Autumn 2016 drama "Rental Kyuuseishu" as a mysterious woman

Inaba Yu will be appearing in the NTV Autumn 2016 drama "Rental Kyuuseishu" which begins its run from 9 October in the Sundays 10.30pm timeslot as a man dressed like a woman. He plays the role of a mysterious woman named Kaoru who appears at the coin laundry shop which Momochi Reiko (Shida Mirai) frequently goes to and often gives encouragement to the latter when she needs it.

In order to prepare for the filming, Inaba shaved some parts of his body and tried to observe how the women around him talk and behave. He commented that it was a new feeling to play a woman and hopes that the viewers will enjoy his performance. When Inaba read the script, he could identify with the theme of people needing help but being unable to say it out aloud at times so he will try to be that pillar of support for Shida's character in the drama. With regard to choosing Inaba to play Kaoru, the producer Fukui Yuta said that it was because of his looks which could be mistaken as a beautiful woman and Inaba's image being masculine and yet gentle at the same time.
