Shinohara Ryoko and Oosugi Ren will be the guests in the first two episodes of the drama. Shinohara commented that she used to frequent Izakaya Fuji 25 years ago and had fond memories of going to the owner couple for advice whenever she was troubled. In addition, it has been a while since we worked with Oomori and Nagayama so she feels reassured to reunite with them but would have loved to participate more in the filming. As such, being able to act in this drama allows her to reminisce about her 20s. As for Oosugi who appeared recently in the Winter 2017 drama "Byplayers" as himself, he remarked that the TV station seemed to have a tendency these days to ask actors to play themselves to the extent that he feels like having a name for his character now. As he will be required to show the lecherous side of himself in this drama, he hopes that viewers will enjoy watching his guest appearance.
As for the supporting cast, Tateishi Ryoko will play Takahashi Mitsuko, the lady boss of the izakaya while regular customers include Hirata Atsuko who plays Reiko, the manager of boutique Maharaja, and Suwa Taro who plays Sho-chan, the president of a construction company. Nishio's mother Tamami will be played by Yo Kimiko while Nakamura Genki will play Akiyama Kenji, Nishio's supervisor at his part-time workplace and Murakami Jun will play Kudo Shunsuke, Nishio's senior at work.
