■Comment from Risa Yukihira
When I was first approached to play the role of Rinko, I was surprised that the role overlapped with mine, even though my personality and character were different because I actually work as a round girl and a talent! Rinko seems to be innocent, and I’m usually rather quiet, so I had a hard time raising the tension and tone of my voice, but the actors and staff livened up the atmosphere and led the way. Ta. I think we had a lot of fun shooting! Please pay attention to “Rinko”, which I played in a different atmosphere than I usually do. She also appears in a swimsuit in the spin-off “Lovely Man from Today” (currently available on TELASA) ♪ Please take a look!!
