Sano Hayato to appear in NTV Winter 2018 drama "Todome no Kiss"

Sano Hayato will be appearing in the upcoming NTV Winter 2018 drama "Todome no Kiss" starring Yamazaki Kento 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 (Araki Yuuko) with ulterior motives, he is stopped by a mysterious woman (Kadowaki Mugi) 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.

Sano plays the role of Hasebe Hiroyuki who is the heir to a big-name cruise company and has been in love with Mikoto since he was a child. Upon seeing Outarou's advances towards the girl of his dreams, Hasebe regards him as an eyesore and views him as a rival for Mikoto's affections. Sano commented that he is humbled to be able to join this star-studded cast and that he has a lot to learn from them. As for his character, Sano said that being a rich man's son who has been sheltered for most of his life, Hasebe can come across as rather naive and unaware of the real world but hopes to make him still likable to the viewers.
