2020 Taiga drama “Kirin ga Kuru” starring Hiromi Hasegawa will start on January 19th. Regarding the broadcast, there was also a problem that the broadcast schedule was delayed by two weeks due to re-shooting etc. after Erika Sawajiri, who had been decided to appear, was arrested for violating the Drug Control Law.
Haruna Kawaguchi was chosen to replace Sawajiri. What kind of actor is Kawaguchi-san, the first challenge in a historical drama?
Selected as 13th Rehouse Girl
Haruna Kawaguchi was born on February 10, 1995 and is from Nagasaki Prefecture. Debuted in 2007 as an exclusive model for fashion magazine “Nicolas”.
In 2009, she was selected as Mitsui’s 13th Rehouse Girl’s “Rehouse Girl” and made her actor debut in the same year on the Fuji TV drama “Tokyo DOGS” on 9 drama. Many people may have seen Kawaguchi’s innocent appearance in Pocari Sweat and Pantene commercials.
After the actor’s debut, she appeared in the dramas “Oran High School Host Club” and “GTO” (2012), and the movies “I Like You Like It” and “One Week Friends”. He has been active in many fields.
Taiga and historical drama first challenge “I will try my best”
For 24-year-old Kawaguchi, appearing in a taiga drama or historical drama is his first challenge.
Kawaguchi plays the role of the return butterfly (Nokihime), who later becomes Oda Nobunaga’s wife. This is the daughter of Dozo Saito, who is known as “Mino no Mamushi” and has a strong presence.
NHK Department of Public Information, for the reason that was appointed Kawaguchi, “There are certainly acting skills, thinking that you can to represent the nobility and strength as a daughter of the warlords, we have decided to ask” and description .
In a comment posted on the official website, Mr. Kawaguchi spells out his enthusiasm to play the role of ” returning butterfly ” , “I will do my best to meet your expectations.”
Returning butterfly is a very strong and dignified woman.
I think it’s hard for women to survive the age of Sengoku, and since they supported Nobunaga, they probably didn’t have the wisdom or height that men did.
With the advice of the director and others around me, I would like to play one scene, one scene, as much as possible, so that I can get closer to the butterfly statue drawn in the script.
