Kagawa Teruyuki to appear in new TBS Spring 2017 drama "Chiisana Kyojin"
Kagawa Teruyuki will be appearing in the upcoming TBS Spring 2017 drama "Chiisana Kyojin" starring Hasegawa Hiroki which will begin its run from April in the Sundays 9pm timeslot. The drama features Hasegawa as the lead character Kosaka Shinichiro who is a capable detective in Metropolitan Police Department's (MPD) 1st section. Despite not passing the advanced level civil servant examination, Kosaka is still viewed to be a strong contender for the position of section chief. However, his career prospects suffer a huge setback when he makes a mistake during an interrogation and gets transferred to a local police station. While investigating relatively smaller cases, Kosaka meets a group of colleagues who still persist in upholding justice through their own ways even if the cases they handle may seem insignificant.
Kagawa plays the role of Onoda Yoshinobu who is the chief of the first investigation section and managed to get to his current position despite only being a senior high school graduate. He is at odds with the previous section chief Mikasa (Shunputei Shota) but decides to take Mikasa's trusted subordinate Kosaka under his wings because he sees Kosaka as an useful tool to further his career prospects. However, when he makes a damning statement against Kosaka, this leads to the latter being transferred thus creating a rift in their relationship.
