It was announced that actress Ueto Aya will be starring in the new NHK drama "Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de", and will play a role of a criminal for the first time.
"Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de" is based on Nonami Asa's novel. Ueto will be playing a college student 'Komoriya Hako' who falls in love with a male host (male who pours drinks & flirt with women in host clubs). In order to make the man the number 1 host at the host club, Hako keeps supplying him with money. However, when she eventually runs out of money, she resorts to crime. She robs men by tempting them to a love hotel, and secretly placing sleeping pills to take their money and valuables.
Finally Hako gets arrested, and is condemned to 7 years at a female prison in Kanto. At the prison, Hako meets a woman named 'Eguchi Ayaka' (will be played by Iijima Naoko) who was condemned for murder. After both women serve their full terms in prison, they start living together in Yanaka, Tokyo. The theme of this drama is a friendship between women who encourage each other and try to establish themselves while carrying heartache.
Other cast members are Asano Atsuko (as Hako's mother), Saito Takumi (as Hako's boyfriend after she was discharged from prison), and the theme song will be sung by singer songwriter Matsutoya Yumi.
"Itsuka Hi no Ataru Basho de" will start airing on January 8th, 2013 with a total run of 10 episodes.
