AAA's main vocalist Nishijima Takahiro will be starring in NHK's new drama 'Taiyou no Wana' which premieres on November 30th. This will be his first lead role in a NHK drama.
An original story by Oshima Satomi, "Taiyou no Wana" is a love suspense drama set at a home appliance company in Nagoya. One day, major home appliance maker Meio Electrics receives a warning letter from Zestar Research Company in America. They accuse Meio of patent infringement with solar panels, and demand a large compensation and licensing fees. Nishijima plays Hasegawa of the Intellectual Property Department, who is suspected of being a corporate spy. This unexpected occurrence happens when he has just started his married life with wife Aoi (played by Ito Ayumi).
Zestar Research Company, also called "Patent Troll", is a patent mafia that is controlled by a mysterious man named Sawada (Tsukamoto Takashi). On the other hand, Hama (Omi Toshinori), who runs a lawsuit prevention service in the company, is reprimanded and insulted from his superior Muraoka (Ibu Masato). He ultimately beats Muraoka in the head and buries him in the mountains. This incident causes a fierce diplomacy that risks the "love" and "pride" of the characters.
The drama will also star Misaki Ayame, Patrick Harlan, Nakahara Takeo, Ishida Hikari, and Yoshida Eisaku.
