Araki Yuuko to appear in NTV Winter 2018 drama "Todome no Kiss"

Araki Yuuko will be appearing in the upcoming NTV Winter 2018 drama "Todome no Kiss" starring Yamazaki Kento and Kadowaki Mugi which will begin its run from January 2018 in the Sundays 10.30pm timeslot. This original story features Yamazaki as Doujima Outarou, the No.1 host in a host club who doesn't believe in love after an incident which happened to him 12 years ago. Since then, he only has eyes for money and power while manipulating women with his good looks and gentle pretense. When he tries to approach a rich man's daughter Namiki Mikoto with ulterior motives, he is stopped by a mysterious woman (Kadowaki) looking pale but with bright red lips who offers a kiss to Outarou. Unexpectedly, this causes Outarou to have breathing difficulties and he dies after experiencing convulsions. When Outarou comes to later, he realises that he has been sent back to 7 days ago and goes through the same period repeatedly due to the mysterious woman who keeps appearing in front of him. The supporting characters include Namiki Takauji (Arata Mackenyu) who is the elder brother of Mikoto and from a top-notch hotel group and Hasebe Hiroyuki who is the heir of a big name cruise company and in love with Mikoto.

Araki plays the role of Namiki Mikoto who was raised in a privileged family, is frank and honest but somewhat wilful at times. Being always with her elder brother who is the epitome of a perfect man, Mikoto has never taken an interest in any guy until she meets Outarou. Araki commented that she is excited and very happy to appear in this interesting drama and thinks that it will be a very stimulating experience to work with her co-stars who are about the same age as her.
