Extended preview for Nankyoku Tairiku

Mini-making and background for the drama. The preview shows some of the harsh conditions that the cast and staff endured while filming for six months in Hokkaido.

Synopsis: In a national project to rebuild the country’s self-confidence, Japan’s first Antarctic winter party set off from Japan on an antacrtic exploration aboard the observation ship ‘Soya’ in 1956. Kuramochi Takeshi (Kimura Takuya), an assistant professor of geophysics at Tokyo University, was the second in command in the party and in charge of geological observation and the dog sled of 19 Sakhalin Huskies. Shouldering the dreams of their fellow countrymen, the party and their dogs braved temperatures of minus 50 degrees Celcius and blizzards with speeds of 100 metres per second in the place they were told to be inaccessible, and built the Showa base. While this took a toll on the dogs, they made it through the winter. However, the party was forced to leave 15 of the Sakhalin Huskies behind in Antarctica. A year later, Kuramochi returned to the South Pole and was reunited with the dog siblings ‘Taro’ and ‘Jiro’ that had miraculously survived the harsh climate.

Me too! The movie made me cried, and I believe they'll be following the facts closely... I'm prepared to cry a lot for this drama!

Anything involving dogs and war related stuff, I'm in tears lol.
But generally, Kimura dramas are good, so I hope this one is good too.
Unlike Tsuki no Koibito, they seem to be really working the plot and organizing it well.

the issue with Kimura is that he has evolved as an actor and FujiTV tried to stick him back into the old roles he use to act as.

This drama will be good. The amount of good actors and actresses means its up to the writers to produce a great script.

Yeah. He's very natural with the roles but I really wanted him to advance to roles that are not the usual 'cool but nice' guy.

So it's nice that he gets to do a drama like this, which expands his horizons.
I think it's gonna be great<3. I love the actors in the drama.

So none of it was actually filmed in Antarctica??? I thought it was going to be. Or at least part of it? Can't help but have extremely big expectations for the drama with its crazy cast. I hope it meets expectations.

Please some sort of actual love story between Ayase and KimuTaku this time???
