Kusanagi Tsuyoshi & Mizuhara Kiko in Bangkok for the filming of FujiTV Winter 2017 drama "Uso no Sensou"

Kusanagi Tsuyoshi and Mizuhara Kiko were in Bangkok from 19th to 21st November for the filming of their new FujiTV Winter 2017 drama "Uso no Sensou" which is due to begin its run from January in the Tuesdays 9pm timeslot. The first scene was filmed at a go-go bar in the middle of Bangkok's entertainment district where Kusanagi's character who is a fraudster, works together with his buddy (Mizuhara) to cheat a fellow Japanese. The filming did not start off on a good note due to the hot weather with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius at night and three rain showers lasting more than an hour on the first day alone. Despite so, Kusanagi said that he had gotten used to the weather and environment and jokingly said that he didn't want to go back to Japan. In the scenes filmed in Bangkok, Kusanagi had to speak Thai which made Mizuhara marvel at how good he was at it that even the locals could understand what he was saying.

It was also announced that Ichimura Masachika will be joining the cast of the drama as the lead character's biggest rival who is the chairman of a large company. Ichimura and Kusanagi last worked together in the 2004 movie Hotel Venus and became close friends so Ichimura agreed to the offer upon hearing that he could work with the latter again.
