First-day-screening event of new movie "Gukoroku"

The first-day-screening event of new movie "Gukoroku" was held at Marunouchi Picadilly on 18 February which was attended by the director Ishikawa Kei and cast members Tsumabuki Satoshi, Mitsushima Hikari, Koide Keisuke, Usuda Asami, Ichikawa Yui, Matsumoto Wakana and Nakamura Tomoya. The movie which is based on the same-titled novel by Nukui Tokuro, features Tsumabuki as the lead character Tanaka who tries to find out the truth behind the massacre of a family and discovers frightening facts about those related to the case. Mitsushima plays his younger sister who is hiding a big secret from him.

When asked about if the cast had any secrets, Tsumabuki revealed that he was wearing his lucky underpants with a JAWS' picture which he had to sew himself as there was a hole due to him wearing it too frequently. Upon hearing this, Mitsushima joked that everyone must be imagining how he looks like in his JAWS underpants after hearing what he said. She revealed that she was advised by a director who she had worked with in the past to look at the staff members' faces while acting so this became a habit for her all the way till now.

With regard to the same question, Koide said that he met popular comedian Buruzon Chiemi recently during a PR appearance and thought that she looked beautiful. This led his co-stars to say that this answer didn't qualify so Koide had to say that he bumped his little finger in the bathroom the day before which led to a lot of bleeding which made the audience laugh. As for Ichikawa, she brought her son for a vaccination three days ago but ended up with a slipped disc on the way home. The pain which felt as if needles were pierced into her body was so hard to bear that she found it difficult to stand and had to wear a corset in order to appear for the event which was greeted with applause from the audience.

When asked about playing siblings again, Tsumabuki described Mitsushima as someone who he can understand very well even without speaking a lot and respects her a lot as an actress. In response, Mitsushima also echoed his view and they both looked at each other smilingly.
