Actress Kyoko Fukada stars in a new drama about air traffic controllers, and says she hopes she did justice to the men and women who work at the nation's airports.
"Tokyo Airport~Air Traffic Services Department~" will air from this Sunday at 9 p.m. on Fuji TV.
The story describes the everyday work of air traffic controllers and Fukada plays the role of a rookie. "When I first read the script, I found the character very cool. I hope more people will appreciate the hard work of air traffic controllers through this drama," said Fukada, 29, during a promotional event at Haneda Airport this week.
Producers said they received full cooperation from Haneda Airport. "I hope all air traffic controllers will watch the program. I think we did them justice," Fukada said, adding that it was a challenge for her to study English, especially the technical terms.
The drama co-stars Nozomi Sasaki, 24, and D-Boys member Koji Seto, 24.© Japan Today
