It was revealed on the 24th that actress Satomi Ishihara (26) will be playing the heroine in Jun Matsumoto's (30) upcoming drama Shitsuren Chocolatier (Fuji, Monday-9).
The drama is based on the popular manga of the same title, and Ishihara will be playing the role of Saeko Takahashi, the upper classman whom Sota Koyurugi (Jun Matsumoto) admires. Sota's approach will bear fruit as the two go steady, but she will eventually dump Sota on the day before Valentine's. Sota will attempt to win her heart again by going to France as he aims to become a chocolate specialist.
The two will be starring alongside each other again, the last being the SP for Lucky Seven at the beginning of this year.
Ishihara who has read the original comments: "It was funny, sad, and painful, I couldn't sleep for a while after reading it." "I am honored to be surrounded by such a wonderful cast as we start off 2014 with an exciting project that is engulfed by a lightly bitter aroma of chocolate".
Other co-actors who will be taking part are Asami Mizukawa (30) as an older beauty who will run the chocolate shop together with Sota; Junpei Mizobata (24) as a half-Japanese, half-French student who will become Sota's best friend when he studies abroad; Kiko Mizuhara (23) as Sota's "sefure"* (* sex friend; or fu*k buddy); and Kasumi Arimura (20) as Sota's younger sister.
