Haru & Higashide Masahiro to play a married couple in new TBS Spring 2017 drama "Anata no koto wa sorehodo"

Haru will be starring in the upcoming TBS Spring 2017 drama "Anata no koto wa sorehodo" (I'm not that in love with you) which will begin its run from April 2017 in the Tuesdays 10pm timeslot. The drama which is based on the same-titled manga by Ikuemi Ryo, features Haru as Watanabe Mitsu who works at an eye clinic and is married to Ryota (Higashide Masahiro) who she met when he came to the clinic as a patient. Unknown to Ryota, Mitsu had always been in love with her former junior high classmate Arishima Koki (Suzuki Nobuyuki) since her teens but he disappeared without a word one day. Having been told by a fortune teller before when she was in junior high that she will end up marrying someone she likes second best instead of the man she loves most, Mitsu then decided to marry Ryota because she thought that she would never stand a chance with Koki anymore. However, as fate would have it, she happens to bump into Koki again and begins a forbidden affair with him despite the fact that Koki is already married to Reika (Naka Riisa).

Haru commented on her character Mitsu that she is someone who knows that even though what she desires is wrong, she would still go ahead with it. As such, Haru feels that Mitsu is a very straightforward yet somewhat silly woman so she hopes to be able to show these traits through her acting. This drama will be her first collaboration with Higashide.
