Actress Nao Minamisawa, 20, will appear in the forthcoming NHK drama "Maigo" (Lost Child) alongside 80-year-old Yun Yu Chun from China. Yun plays an elderly foreign lady who gets lost and seeks assistance from the people around her.
Describing day-to-day life on the set, Minamisawa -- who studied Chinese as her secondary foreign language at university -- said, "I thought I should try out my Chinese, so I would write notes in my notebook and point to them. It managed quite well."
The drama airs on NHK from Feb 19.© Japan Today
