Arisa Mizuki to play lone wolf teacher in new drama

17 Comments

Actress Arisa Mizuki, 32, takes on the role of a lone wolf teacher in the new TBS drama series, "O-hitori-sama" (Party of One), which starts Friday at 10 p.m. Mizuki's character fearlessly lives her life alone until she falls into an odd couple romance with a "herbivore man," played by co-star Teppai Koike, 23.

Mizuki said of the role, "I think the phrase 'o-hitori-sama' has a lot of impact; I really like it and want to paint an image of a woman people can empathize with."

Koike, who had recently been out with the flu, returned to filming on Oct 11 to a thunderous round of applause. "Everyone was really warm," he said.

most j-dramas are school dramas. what's up with that? let's get more more creative and write more interesting plots.

And stray outside the predictable, rehashed 'formula box'? Oh, wait-- we're talking about a creative industry, aren't we. Imagine if music and fashion took as many chances as the TV industry here.
