Leading actresses Koyuki, 32, Kyoko Hasegawa, 31, Yuka, 29, Asami Mizukawa, 26, and Saki Aibu, 24, will star in romantic drama mini-series “Onnatachi wa nido asobu” to be shown exclusively on NTT DoCoMo’s BeeTV cell phone broadcasting service next year.
Hasegawa, Yuuka, Mizukawa and Aibu will star separately in six 5-minute episodes, and Koyuki in five 5-minute episodes, while actor Yusuke Santamaria, 38, will ply his trade in all 29 episodes.
In one of the stories, Aibu’s character is at a party and meets a man played by Santamaria. At the end of the party, it starts raining, and he asks her back to his place where she can stay until the rain stops. She ends up staying there for three days, but doesn’t cook or clean, or even empty the ash tray.
Production is rumored to be in the range of 150 million yen, roughly twice the cost of the average 2-hour drama special. Singer Namie Amuro’s “The Meaning Of Us” has been chosen as the theme song.
“Onnatachi wa nido asobu” will air on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting March 1.© Japan Today
