Hongo Kanata to star in new FujiTV drama "Rabuho no Ueno-san"

Hongo Kanata will be starring in the new FujiTV drama "Rabuho no Ueno-san" (The love hotel's Ueno-san) which will be shown via FujiTV On Demand. The drama which is based on the same-titled manga that is currently serialised in "Gekkan Comic Flapper", features Hongo as the lead character Ueno who works in a love hotel and gives advice to people who are troubled by love and having issues in their relationships. The character Ueno-san is said to be based on the author Ueno's own experience who also worked at a love hotel. The author Ueno gives advice on love through his Twitter account as well.

Hongo who is starring in his first leading role in a FujiTV drama series, commented that just by looking at the title, people might get surprised and wonder what the story is about. However, this is actually a comedy which is suitable for everyone to watch and he hopes to do his best to show how charming Ueno-san is.

"Rabuho no Ueno-san" will be shown via FujiTV On Demand from 1 December where new episodes will be released every Thursday. It will be shown on TV from January 2017 on every Wednesday.
