First look at the office ladies of the new drama 'Shomuni 2013'
This summer Fuji TV is going to bring back the popular drama 'Shomuni' with a new season in 10 years. Speaking of 'Shomuni', the first thing that come to mind are actress Esumi Makiko (46) as the protagonist and the classic office lady (OL) outfits. Fortunately, none of those two are being changed in the fourth season.
However, Esumi is being supported by a completely new cast this time. The other office ladies who are now working in the General Administration Section 2 (GA-) of 'Manpan Corporation' are played by Becky (29), Honda Tsubasa (20), Ando Sakura (27), Mori Kanna (24), and Horiuchi Keiko (42). Esumi's character 'Tsuboi Chinatsu' left Manpan Corporation after the third season that aired in 2002, but now something causes her to go back to Manpan Corporation. The new season starts with her return to the company.
The office uniforms are almost exactly the same as previous seasons, a white blouse, blue vest, and tight mini-skirt, but Esumi revealed that there is a slight difference. She said, "It was a really strange and happy sensation when I put on this outfit again. A lot of time has passed since the last time I've worn this uniform, so we had to make a slight adjustment. The skirt is now 2~3 centimeters (0.78"-1.2") longer than before. That's still pretty short, though."
Becky also posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the poster photo shoot on her Twitter to show that the outfit hasn't lost its charm.
Other new characters in the fourth season are played by Miura Shohei (25), Katase Nana (31), Yasuda Ken (39), and Suzuki Kosuke (38).
'Shomuni 2013' is premiering on Fuji TV on July 10th.
