Nishino, who plays Natsuki, and Chiba, who played Motoya, were challenged by their roles in this drama.
"When I first read the script, I couldn't imagine myself playing a woman named Natsuki. However, after I started shooting, I rushed toward my dream of work, and even got pregnant, married, gave birth and raised children. I think I was able to create Natsuki, who works hard, together with the staff. ",
I was very happy to be able to play the role of dad, and when I actually held my child in my hands, I remembered feelings I had never experienced before. I think that there are various forms of human relationships, but I hope that you can see how you live as an option through this work. It may be unreasonable, but one day I may think that this choice was right, and I feel that I have learned the importance of seriously dealing with the people and things in front of me. Please take a look.
