The production press conference of TV Asahi's 55th anniversary 2-part drama SP "Olympic no Minoshirokin" was held in Tokyo on 31 October which was attended by cast members Takenouchi Yutaka, Matsuyama Kenichi, Kuroki Meisa, Izumiya Shigeru, Emoto Akira, Osugi Ren, Kurokawa Tomoka, Saito Takumi, Sasano Takashi, Sawamura Ikki, Hayami Mokomichi and Hara Sachie. The drama SP will be shown on 30 November and 1 December at 9pm.
When asked about his thoughts of working with Matsuyama for the first time, Takenouchi commented that although his co-star may seem like any young man of his age off screen, Matsuyama is able to act so well the moment they start filming. On the other hand, Matsuyama said that he had the impression all along that Takenouchi was no ordinary human being and reaffirmed this while working on this SP which led everyone to laugh at this comment.
