Hiroshi Tachi, 60, and Yumiko Shaku, 32, will star in next year's NHK period drama "Onmitsu Happyakuyacho" (Edo Espionage). The pair and co-star Tsutomu Ikeda, 32, attended a PR event this week to publicize the drama.
"Hiroshi taught me a lot about relationships and about what men think of women my age," Shaku said. Tachi then explained, "Don't say 'I love you'. Don't say you can cook. Don't say you're faithful. Those are the three sentences that drive men crazy."
When asked to comment on the recently announced relationship between Masaki Kanda, 59, and TV personality Rie Hasegawa, 37, Tachi said: "I met them on Dec 14 at a commercial shoot and they seemed really happy. Kanda's still young at heart."
"Onmitsu Happyakuyacho" will be broadcast Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m., starting Jan 8.© Japan Today
