Yagira Yuuya to appear in NTV Spring 2017 drama "Frankenstein no Koi"

Yagira Yuuya will be appearing in the upcoming NTV Spring 2017 drama "Frankenstein no Koi" starring Ayano Go which will begin its run from April in the Sundays 10.30pm timeslot. The drama which is based on an original script by Oomori Sumio, features Ayano as a monster created by the famous Dr. Frankenstein 100 years ago who has an appearance similar to human beings, eternal life and a gentle heart. He falls in love with a young woman Tsugaru-san (Nikaidou Fumi) but things between them are fraught with difficulties as he has an unspeakable secret as he cannot be touched by human beings. Much as he desires to come into contact with human beings, he is scared of being hurt. Although he wants to love, he is scared of being disliked.

Yagira will play the role of Inaba who belongs to the same research lab as Tsugaru in the university and is in love with her. While living with the monster, Inaba helps him with a lot of things and the two gradually form a friendship. However, Inaba can't help but make comparisons between him and the monster who he sees as a fake human being and experiences a rollercoaster of emotions as he grapples with jealousy and the urge to do bad things to the monster. Yagira commented that he is honoured and happy to be able to work with Ayano and his seniors in this drama and hopes to be able to convey human nature with a dash of humour through his acting.
