Hongo Kanata to star in FujiTV Autumn 2017 drama "Rabuho no Ueno-san season 2"

Hongo Kanata will be returning as the lead in the upcoming FujiTV Autumn 2017 drama "Rabuho no Ueno-san season 2" (The love hotel's Ueno-san) which will be shown via FujiTV-on-demand (FOD) first before its TV broadcast. The drama is based on the same-titled manga that is currently serialised in "Gekkan Comic Flapper" and features Hongo as the lead character Ueno who works in a love hotel and gives advice to people who are troubled by love and having issues in their relationships. The character Ueno-san is said to be based on the author Ueno's own experience who also worked at a love hotel before.

In the sequel, it continues showcasing how Ueno-san gives sadistic advice to men and women who are troubled in love and what happens to Ichijo (Masaki Reiya) after he confesses his feelings to the woman he loves. Co-stars from the previous season including Osawa Hikaru, Imoarau Kakaricho, Soutaro and Asaoka Megumi will also make their return in the sequel.

With regard to the sequel, Hongo said that he never expected that this would come so soon and he's very happy about it especially since this is the first work he had participated in which got good reviews thus leading to the sequel. As such, he's very excited about the filming and hopes to take his portrayal of Ueno-san to new heights.
