'Hayami-san to Yobareru Hi' special episodes to replace 'Kazoku no Uta'
Fuji TV seems to have pinned their hopes on Matsushita Nao to revive their Sunday drama time slot just in time for the upcoming summer season.
On May 18th, they announced that they are going to bring back the drama 'Hayami-san to Yobareru Hi' starring Matsushita with two special episodes after cutting the disappointing 'Kazoku no Uta' down to just eight episodes. 'Hayami-san to Yobareru Hi' had just aired during the winter season with a decent average rating of 10.5%, which isn't a very high rating, while 'Kazoku no Uta' seems unable to climb above 4% anymore.
Fans of 'Hayami-san' might be afraid that it could just be a two-episode summary of the entire plot due to such a short notice, but Fuji TV explained that it will actually continue the story. The story began with the incapable Yuriko (Matsushita) marrying Kyoichi (V6' Inohara Yoshihiko), the eldest son of the Hayami family, without knowing that she would have to deal with all the housework and adversity of the Hayami family's all-male household. By the end of the drama, she had grown into a very strong woman and wife.
In the two special episodes, the relationship between Yuriko and Kyoichi gets tested with the sudden appearance of Kyoichi's former girlfriend, played by the beautiful Uchida Yuki, after 10 years, and the bond of the Hayami family is shaken by the revelation of an unthinkable secret. The rest of the Hayami family will once again be played by Funakoshi Eiichiro, Kaname Jun, and KAT-TUN's Nakamaru Yuichi.
Matsushita commented, "I'm really happy that we're able to bring back 'Hayami-san to Yobareru Hi' like this. I once again would like to work together with everyone in perfect harmony, and depict a heartwarming family drama."
The two special episodes of 'Hayami-san to Yobareru Hi' will replace 'Kazoku no Uta' on June 10 and 17.
