The screening event and press conference of new hulu drama "Ame ga furu to kimi wa yasashii" was held on 12 September which was attended by the scriptwriter Nojima Shinji and cast members Tamayama Tetsuji and Sasaki Nozomi. The drama which consists of 8 episodes, will be streamed on hulu from 16 September where 2 episodes will be uploaded weekly.
Tamayama plays Tachiki Nobuo, the assistant editor of a monthly literature magazine while Sasaki plays his wife Aya who used to be a model for a magazine and works at an old folks' home after getting married. Although the couple seem to be having a happy life, Aya is actually suffering from sexual dependency. She would wear red clothes which she usually doesn't wear whenever the weather is sunny and these are the days when she has the uncontrollable urge to sleep with other men. While trying to put on a pretense in front of Nobuo, Aya tries to seek treatment and goes for counselling. However, things start to get out control when Aya has sex with a man she comes to know from a dating site and he turns out to be Nobuo's colleague.
Tamayama said that even though the trend these days seem to be all about extramarital affair stories, he believed that viewers will be able to go through a simulated experience of tragic pure love by watching this drama.
