Kishii Yukino to star in new FujiTV drama SP "Juukyuusai"

Kishii Yukino will be starring in the new FujiTV drama SP "Juukyuusai" (19 years old) which will be shown at 1.25am on 5 April. The drama is based on the winning work by music university student Aoyama Nanami in the first "Dorama Koshien" contest which had been held three times to date for aspiring scriptwriters in senior high school. Aoyama wrote the script "Juunanasai" (17 years old) when she was a senior high school student. The drama will be directed by Takano Ai who has worked on dramas such as "Hirugao" and "Itsuka kono koi wo omoidashite kitto naite shimau".

The drama describes how the lead character Yoshiko (Kishii) who is an arts university student, behaves in a rebellious way towards her mother Asako who behaves as she pleases and how she falls for a man Aoba (Mashima Hidekazu) who her mother used to love.

Aoyama commented that the story is set at in the suburbs which has a nostalgic feel and hopes that the viewers will enjoy watching how a young person copes with confusion in her life and grows in the process. As for Kishii, she praised Aoyama for being mature beyond her actual age and that the script is hardly anything you would expect from someone who's just 19 so she was very eager to act in this drama after reading the script. The drama should be interesting to viewers of all ages be it those who are about to turn 19 or those already in their 30s or 40s and beyond who can look back fondly to the time when they were 19.
