It’s the Good Life

April 6, 2011

Asssshhh! This promotion picture is tugging at my heartstrings! It’s simplistic and poignant. Sorimachi Takahashi, famous for his lead role in Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO, which I STILL haven’t watched! Gah!) and the boy add to the emotion of the picture as well. The picture is used for the upcoming drama called Good Life ~Arigato, Papa. Sayonara~ which will premiere on April 19.

The basis for the drama is the novel “Kashikogi” by author Cho Chang-in, which has sold 2 million copies in Korea since its publication in 2000. It has already been adapted as a television drama and a stage play in that country. On February 4, Shogakukan is publishing the book in Japan under the title “Good Life.” Sorimachi plays the part of Daichi Sawamoto, a newspaper reporter who has always prioritized his work over his family. When his wife suddenly leaves him, he finally notices the love he has been receiving from his son. Just as he decides to answer back, it is discovered that his son has leukemia. Igawa plays Sawamoto’s wife, Eikura plays a pediatrics specialist, and Ihara plays a doctor. – Tokyograph

Gee! This drama is calling for me and yes I will watch you, show! No fansub group(s) have offered to provide subtitles for the show yet, but I mean, it’s Sorimachi Takahashi for goodness’s sakes! And comin’, look at that picture!
