Ami Suzuki shows warmth in new daytime drama

12 Comments

Singer Ami Suzuki, 26, takes on the challenge of portraying a hearing-impaired character in “Love Letter,” a new TV drama celebrating the 40th anniversary of TBS’s “Ai no gekijou” daytime dramas. Suzuki plays the lead role of a young woman growing up, who communicates through sign language. She travels to Shodo Island in Kagawa Prefecture, where she falls in love for the first time and makes lifelong friendships.

Suzuki expressed her concerns and aspirations when she said “I want to express my true feelings through sign language. With music, I can express things like love clearly through the words, but on stage I have to convey things that are not expressed easily, so that’s tough. But I think I’ll be able to convey the warmth of people through sign language.”

The drama starts on Nov 24 and is on weekdays at 1 p.m.

Good for her. Im glad she's making progress fowards with her career. In truth I used to think she was hearing impaired when she used to sing.

Yawn..they've already used this theme. About 7 years ago there was a deaf love story and many females in their twenties longed for their boyfriend to lose his hearing.

I thought Ayumi Hamasaki would have been a better fit for the role.

Ayumi Hamasaki really is deaf, in one ear anyway but you could be forgiven to think it was both. I'm glad for Ami Suzuki that she's working, she almost disappeared a few years ago.
