Production press conference of FujiTV Autumn 2016 drama "Medical Team Lady Da Vinci no Shindan"

The production press conference of FujiTV Autumn 2016 drama "Medical Team Lady Da Vinci no Shindan" was held on 8 October which was attended by cast members Yoshida Yo, Aibu Saki, Yoshioka Riho, Ito Ran, Takahashi Katsunori, Totsugi Shigeyuki, Fueki Yuko, Shiratori Kumiko, Shonozaki Ken and Takizawa Saori. The drama which begins its run from 11 october, features a group of 7 female doctors in a team which tries to cure various difficult illnesses with mysterious causes.

Being the lead actress in this drama, Yoshida commented that she never thought that there might be a day when she would be the first to greet the media among the cast members during press conferences. Although this drama is somewhat different from other medical dramas to date, she promised to work hard and do her best.

Ito who is the eldest in the cast, revealed that it has been tough memorising the lines which contains a lot of medical jargon but it was amazing that Yoshida could say the lines so smoothly as if she was not bothered by the difficulty of the lines. Fueki commented that in normal circumstances, with so many actresses in the cast, there are bound to be problems arising if there's anyone who's a bit peculiar or unusual but she has been enjoying the filming so far because they get along very well with one another.

Takahashi who is one of the few actors in this cast, commented that although the ladies are gentle individually, he couldn't help but feel the pressure when they are together due to their strength in numbers. Totsugi who recently welcomed the arrival of his son with his wife Ichikawa Yui, was congratulated by his co-stars and joked that it was time for him to go home as it would be his son's bath time soon. Takahashi revealed that Totsugi has been showing them photos of his son on his mobile phone while Ito said that Totsugi has been smoking during the filming breaks because he has been banned from smoking at home. Upon hearing this, Totsugi was flustered and hurriedly told Ito that this shouldn't be made known to everyone.
