It's been revealed that Nogizaka46's Hashimoto Nanami will be appearing in the upcoming Fuji TV summer drama 'SUMMER NUDE'.
'SUMMER NUDE' is Fuji TV's new "Getsu 9" (Monday 9:00pm) starring Yamashita Tomohisa, Karina, and Toda Erika in a bittersweet love-triangle story. Hashimoto is going to play a puzzling young girl who suddenly appears at the beach hut with her boyfriend - played by actor Chiba Yudai. This girl is a very honest and shy person who instantly begins to blush when she talks about love. However, she tends to become the type of girl who puts action before thinking only for her boyfriend.
Hashimoto herself commented that she has never even dreamed of appearing in a "Getsu 9" drama and was very surprised about the offer. Looking back at the first scene she filmed the other day, she expressed, "I had to gather all my courage before intruding this amazing group of actors. I kept being extremely nervous throughout the filming. Everyone was really kind to me, so I think I can be a little more at ease next time."
This drama is also going to mark the first time people can see Hashimoto in a swimsuit. She actually has never worn a swimsuit as a member of Nogizaka46 before. She commented, "I haven't worn a swimsuit since 6th grade. Of course I'm a bit anxious about it, but I'll try to work on my abs as much as I can before this scene."
Fuji TV is going to air the 1st episode of 'SUMMER NUDE' on July 8.
