Five hot actresses to star in BeeTV’s cell phone drama

51 Comments

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.

Clearly, as the youngest, Aibu's character's duties are in the bedroom. Koyuki's character can empty the ash tray (a difficult, full-time job!), Yuka's character can do the cleaning, Asami Mizukawa's character can do the cooking, and Kyoko Hasegawa's character can do the bathing. Of course, all three older women share in the bedroom duties as well. Too bad for him it only rained for three days and his harem goes back down to four.

I'd like to see more romantic dramas like this!

if by hot you mean bones sticking out all over the place - then i guess they are. i don`t think so.

Since when is Koyuki "hot"?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Koyuki is about as sexy as a cardboard box.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Hey...don't knock Koyuki. She's got street creds by starring opposite Tom Cruise. And she recently showed her vocal chops in that whiskey commercial.

Does this mean only DoCoMo subscribers can watch these things?

Yuuka did it for me at 19, but at 29 she looks pedestrian.

Asami Mizukawa looks damn hot.

It's a tough decision to give up the freedom of being a bachelor, but I've just decided to marry Kyoko Hasegawa.

How could she not empty the ash tray? Now that's just rude!!

Yusuke Santamaria should have kept his real name, Nakayama.

None of them have to do any cooking or cleaning if they stay at my place.

I want to trade my wife in for Yuuka.

Wonder how that happened?

What is the fun of looking at that little screen all day?

Yusuke Santamaria! I love that guy!

Blimey, can I join the drama too? Aibu Saki is very..... aesthetically pleasing. I am a great actor and performer, plenty of experience from business meetings with Japanese clients!

If she didn't cook or clean and he let her stay at his apartment for 3 days, she must have been really good in bed.

Asami-san takes my prize for being hot, damn hot.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

she must have been really good in bed

If it's a drama aimed at women, I can certainly say that won't be the storyline - it will be her beauty and personality....

The premise is moronic. Stay until the rain stops?

Ah, Namie Amuro sings, too!

That settles it.

5 minutes to look forward to every other day.

Aibu plays a woman who doesn't do any housework during three days of hard rain. Mizukawa plays an woman with bad luck. Koyuki plays a VERY beautiful woman. Yuka plays a woman with loose morals. Hasegawa plays a boring woman.

Interesting casting choices.

"Koyuki plays a VERY beautiful woman"

That shouldn't be hard.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Koyuki hot ? Is that a joke ?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

i wouldn't kick koyuki out of bed... but she's popular because she fits that more traditional j-woman stereotype. which is fine, i just hope she's also someone who's fun to be around. for her sake

Hey...don't knock Koyuki. She's got street creds by starring opposite Tom Cruise.

If anything that eliminates all credibility

Hasegawa plays a boring woman.

This may be the least challenging role of all for one of these "hot" women.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

It is very difficult to play a boring woman. Every woman is unique.

I beleive BeeTV’s cell phone drama will be uniquely boring. Only one man and not my type.

Only one man and not my type.

I thought at first you said only one man was not your type (LOL).

I wonder if the drama has English subtitles. Thank you for the lovely drama subtitles I want to say.

no, actually I like many men but only the actors in drama who play strong types.

I forgot to ask, was it difficult pretending to be boring?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I forgot to ask, was it difficult pretending to be boring?

would it make you happy to say no? I find it a contradiction that you are interested in boring me. Let us watch this keitai drama, ok?

Who wants to watch a movie or a drama on a cell phone? Not me!

150 million yen for a cell phone drama... How much is that per pixel?

I was testing your theory that boring could cause some interest - apparently not.... Enjoy the keitai drama ;)

Enjoy the keitai drama ;)

I am not sure I will give it a chance but if I have some time I will try it because at least it is not that long
