This marks the first time for Kimura to star in a TV Asahi serial drama, and it's also his first time to co-star with Ueto in a drama.
'I'm home' is a live-action drama adaptation of Ishizaka Kei's award-winning manga of the same name which was serialized on "Big Comic Original" during 1997 ~ 1998.
In the drama, Kimura will play the protagonist "Ieji Hisashi."
5 years have passed since Ieji marries his wife "Megumi" and has a son with her, however, his memory of the past 5 years becomes foggy due to an accident. After the accident, his wife and son somehow look like they are wearing masks in his eyes. As Ieji can't even read their faces and emotions because of the masks, and he is not sure if he loves them, he becomes distressed.
On the other hand, he has memories about his former wife who he divorced 5 years ago, and their daughter. In order to find out his days of the past 5 years, he begins searching for his past self, with the mysterious 10 keys he posseses in his hands.
--What is the mystery behind the bunch of keys? Why did he divorce his former wife?, and...why is his current wife and son look like they're wearing masks to him?--
Ieji gradually solves the mystery by visiting people involved in his past.
'I'm home' will air on TV Asahi starting in April (every Thursday at 9:00 pm).
