On April 9th, Amami Yuki attended a press conference at movie theater Shinjuku Ward 9 in Tokyo for the new season of "BOSS", a popular detective drama in which she stars.

The actress opened by saying, "Although it is a tough time right now, I hope that we can pull through together with cheerful spirits. We put our hearts into making [this drama] a source of joy for everyone, so please look forward to its release".

At the talk show, Amami also answered questions from fans such as,"How do you grow so tall?" Advising, "Take in calcium, exercise well, and believe [that you will] 'grow! grow!' I grew until I was 25, so it's okay."

When asked,"What is something you were happy about recently?", the actress responded, "Being able to take part in 'BOSS' once more", and continued with a smile, "It's fun. The filming site. Everyone is just silly. It is wonderful to be on set because everyone responds to one another's acting and discusses openly how we should each improve."


"BOSS" is a drama that focuses on Amami as the head detective in her investigative department, working with and managing her underlings Tamayama Tetsuji, Toda Erika, and others in their quest to fight terrible crimes. The first season of the series began in April of 2009 and had an average viewership of 17.0%, drawing in a spectacular 20.7% for its finale.

The second season will feature Narumi Riko, Shaku Yumiko, Oomori Nao, Hasegawa Kyoko, and Nishida Toshiyuki, in addition to the already brilliant cast of Amami Yuki, Tamayama Tetsuji, Toda Erika, Takenouchi Yutaka, Mizobata Junpei, Kichise Michiko, Nukumizu Yoichi and Kendo Kobayashi.

Attendees of the fan event on the 8th and 9th were able to consecutively watch all eleven episodes of the first season. Tamayama and Nukumizu made appearances on the 8th when everyone in attendance wished Tamayama, who had turned 31 on the 7th, a happy birthday.

Season two of "BOSS" begins Thursday, April 14th at 10 PM JST, and the season premiere will be an extended episode fifteen minutes longer than usual.
