Kanjiya Shihori to play a 'love refugee' in a three-nighter drama on NTV
On November 16th, it was announced that actress Kanjiya Shihori will star in a mini drama titled 'Pin Onna no Merry Christmas ~Koi Shitai, Koi Shiyou to Shinai, Koi Dekinai.~" on NTV.
The drama will be made up of three episodes that will air on three consecutive nights on December 17th, 18th, and 19th. Kanjiya, who has never never starred in a drama on NTV before, will play a 28-year-old female company employee named 'Matsubara Kaede', who is a perfect example of a so-called 'love refugee'. In her case, she hasn't been able to love a man, let alone have an actual boyfriend, for more than three years.
Kanjiya herself already made clear that she's not like her character and commented, "I guess I'm not really a 'love refugee' myself. I'm already fainting whenever I see a macho man..." She continued to promote the drama, "There are a lot of moments that women are going to love, but I think that even men can use it as a guide to love and find out what kind of men women like. This drama is full of energy and shouldn't be missed by anyone."
Other characters in the drama include her good friend, a systems engineer who is good at domestic chores - played by Tsukamoto Takashi, a fellow female colleague who loves shoujo manga and romantic movies - played by Hiraiwa Kami, and another popular female colleague who is never without a boyfriend - played by Tanimura Mitsuki. Moreover, Hirayama Hiroyuki will appear as Kaede's love interest and Kaneko Nobuaki as a drummer and her former boyfriend.
The script for 'Pin Onna no Merry Christmas' was written by Matsuda Yuko ('Gokusen').
NTV will air the 55-minute long episodes of this mini drama every night at 12:18 a.m. on those three days.
