Sexy Zone's Sato Shouri to appear in NTV Spring 2018 drama "Miss Devil Jinji no Akuma Tsubaki Mako"

Sexy Zone's Sato Shouri will be appearing in the NTV Spring 2018 drama "Miss Devil Jinji no Akuma Tsubaki Mako" starring Nanao which will begin its run from April in the Saturdays 10pm timeslot. Nanao plays the lead character Tsubaki Mako who is a cold and cruel but capable freelance human resource consultant and nicknamed as the devil. Her trademark is the red heels she wears and her signature line will be "anata ni wa, kono kaisha wo yameru kenri ga arimasu" (you have the right to quit this company). She will be taking on various problems in the organisation such as bullying of junior staff, retrenchment, sexual harassment, power harassment, fights for power between factions and monster employees in a daring way.

Sato who will be playing a salaryman for the first time, acts as Tsubaki's subordinate Saito Hiroshi who is a newbie in the company. He is pushed by Tsubaki to handle many difficult tasks but grows to become a more mature working adult through the process. In order to prepare for the filming, Sato consulted his elder brother who works in a company on things like how to exchange namecards and even cut his hair to look convincing as a new company employee. He commented that his character always feels as if he is being trampled on by Tsubaki's red heels but he is very eager and excited about working with Nanao.

Other co-stars include Kimura Yoshino, Funakoshi Eiichiro and Nishida Toshiyuki. Filming is due to begin in the middle of March.
