Kyoko Hasegawa to star in FujiTV special
Hasegawa Kyoko will be starring in the FujiTV drama SP "Natsu no Owari ni, Koi wo Shita" (Fell in love at the end of summer) which will be shown at 11pm on 26 September. This is the first drama which has a tie-up with luxury brand Tiffany and will be shot entirely in New York. The love comedy which is written by Kitagawa Eriko, will be Hasegawa's first drama in a leading role since TV Asahi's "Angel Bank" in 2010. Hasegawa's romantic interest in this SP will be played by Kudo Asuka. The two of them had appeared in the NHK Taiga "Yae no Sakura" as Yae's sister-in-law and Yae's younger brother so this will be the second time they are working together.
Hasegawa will play the role of Chikage, a woman who is around the age of 40 years old and gets dumped by Tomonori (Tanihara Shosuke), her boyfriend of 5 years, who is going to marry a younger woman Nanami (Nanao). When she hears that Tomonori and Nanami are heading to New York for their honeymoon, she tails them there and accidentally comes to know Shunpei (Kudo Asuka), a Japanese studying there. Chikage and Shunpei then end up falling in love but the day of her return to Japan is approaching soon...
