Koide Keisuke to star in new NHK drama "Kamisama kara hitogoto ~ Naniwa okyakusama soudanshitsu monogatari ~"

Koide Keisuke will be starring in the new NHK drama "Kamisama kara hitogoto ~ Naniwa okyakusama soudanshitsu monogatari ~" (A word from God ~ the story of Naniwa customer counselling room ~) which will begin its run from 10 June in the Saturdays 8.15pm timeslot. The drama which consists of 6 episodes, is based on the same-titled novel by Ogiwara Hiroshi who won the 155th Naoki Award.

Koide plays the lead character Sakura Ryohei who is a straightforward guy and hates to go around the bush. His overly strong sense of justice causes Ryohei to clash with his superior so often that he is transferred from a major advertising agency to a food manufacturer Tamayama Shokuhin's customer service department. On the first day of his work, Ryohei ends up quarelling with his boss again and gets sent to the customer counselling room which deals with "monster complainers". In this department, he has to work with colleagues with very colourful characters but they are all experts in dealing with complaints. Although Ryohei feels that he does not fit in within the organisation, he starts to pick up skills in complaint handling and grows to become an even better person. Co-stars include Kishii Yukino, Miyake Hiroki, Yoshizawa Hisashi, Koizumi Kotaro, Ichige Yoshie, Kusabue Mitsuko and Danta Yasunori.
