'Doctor X' first ep reaches 18.6% rating as Yonekura enjoys first public bathhouse experience

Actress Ryoko Yonekura had her first public bathhouse experience while filming TV Asahi’s new drama “Doctor X ~Gekai Daimon Michiko~,” which airs Thursday night from 9 p.m.

The drama revolves around the unusual lifestyle of a charismatic freelance surgeon, Michiko Daimon, played by Yonekura, who works at multiple hospitals. Michiko is not your average doctor, oozing sex appeal and wearing miniskirts under her white coat. Under a special contract, which allows Michiko to leave her work at 5 p.m., she enjoys her “after 5” life by dancing at clubs, playing Mahjong, and going to hot springs and public bathhouses.

During filming, Yonekura, 37, visited a public bathhouse in Tokyo for the first time in her life. She said she enjoyed soaking in the bath against a huge wall painting of Mount Fuji, TV Asahi reported.

When it comes to Yonekura’s own “after 5” life, she said she is not unlike her character. “I do love going out and drinking sake, but I go to the gym to keep in shape. I also do exercises while listening to the radio.”
