Shuri to star in new FujiTV Autumn 2017 drama "Ayamachi Scramble"

Shuri will be starring in the upcoming FujiTV CS Autumn 2017 drama "Ayamachi Scramble" (Mistake Scramble) which will be shown from 19 November in the Sundays 11.30pm timeslot. There will be a total of 5 episodes lasting 30 minutes each.

The love comedy describes how the lead character Risa (Shuri) has always been interested in her colleague played by Wakaba Ryuya but she suddenly starts to imagine how it would be if he had an affair with a married woman (Hashimoto Manami) who she just met the day before even though there is nothing like that happening in reality. Her wild imagination gets her into serious trouble as she keeps making mistakes due to her exaggerated fantasy.

As this is Shuri's first leading role and her first attempt at a love comedy, she admitted that she never thought that such a day would come. Nonetheless, she hopes to be able to convey the overly-straightforward side of Risa and how she hides her true self while trying to peer into the dark sides of other people and hopes that the viewers will enjoy watching this.

The drama's theme song "Yuuwaku Party" will be sung by 4-member band Shiggy Jr while the movie version of the drama will be shown for a week only from 28 October at Shinjuku's K's cinema.

Shuri is the only child of Mizutani Yutaka and Ito Ran and had been seen recently in dramas such as NHK's morning drama "Toto Nee-chan" and TBS Spring 2017 drama "Reverse".
