PsychoDrama celebrates 3 years this coming March 2015! Time flies when you're having fun, and it's such an awesome feeling that we're celebrating our 3rd year - reviewing Japanese movies and drama shows, announcing casting news, doing actor's bias articles and hitlist. Watch out for some special/exclusive articles and interviews soon! Really like to thank those who commented, liked, shared, tweeted and reacted to our articles, many of whom are already friends! Hoping we can stay online for another 30 years or more! That's quite an ambitious target but who knows?
If you've watched xxxHolic live action adaptation, then you'll remember that Anne played the witch Yuko Ichihara, while Masahiro Higashide was Watanuki's (Shota Sometani) best friend, Shizuka Doumeki. In the new morning drama from NHK, both stars play a couple.
Synopsis: In the food themed drama "Gochisousan," Meiko Uno (Anne Watanabe) is the daughter of parents who run a western style restaurant in Tokyo. She marries and moves to Osaka with her husband. Meiko experiences cultural differences between Tokyo and Osaka, as she lives as a mother and wife in Osaka.
"I heard from people how the filming of morning drama is hard, but I think I would be able to enjoy it and I would feel the time would go by fast if I'm surrounded by these great people. I am looking forward to it." [ source ]
Higashide Masahiro is going to play the role of Meiko's husband.
"I hope I can grow as a human and as an actor through this work that I will spend a whole year. All I can do is to face with it sincerely." Reportedly, he will move to Osaka in April, and begin preparing for the filming that will start in May.
