"Yutori desu ga nani ka" to be back as a SP this summer

NTV Spring 2016 drama "Yutori desu ga nani ka" written by Kudo Kankuro and starring Okada Masaki, Matsuzaka Toori and Yagira Yuuya will be back as a drama SP this summer. The title of the two-hour long SP will be "Yutori desu ga nani ka Junmai kinjo junjo hen". In the drama series, Sakama Masakazu (Okada) managed to get married to his girlfriend Miyashita Akane (Ando Sakura) after various difficulties so the drama SP will describe what happens to the couple and the people around them one year later. As such, regular cast members including Shimazaki Haruka who plays Masakazu's younger sister and Taiga who plays Masakazu's junior at work will also appear in the SP.

Kudo revealed that he's not very good at and keen on doing sequels but thinks that it's not a bad idea to observe these characters again a year later through this drama SP. As for Okada, he expressed his joy about the production of this SP and looks forward to showing a grown-up version of Masakazu in the sequel. Matsuzaka echoed his view and said that the key cast members were very glad to be able to act together again in the same characters. Yagira commented that they did wonder if the drama could go on for a while as a series and called upon viewers to look forward to this new SP.

Filming is currently in progress.
