Watanabe Mayu's Drama [Sabadoru] Updates
Some updates about Watanabe Mayu's upcoming drama [Sabadoru], which will start airing on this Friday, January 13th.
Mayuyu will be acting as a 38-year-old teacher Usa Shijima, who teaches classical literature in a certain technical high school. She has a gloomy personality and is constantly bullied by her students. What the students don't know is that Usa Shijima is actually the 17 year old (fake age) mega popular idol Watanabe Mayu, whom the students love.
The drama is directed by Sato Futoshi, and Akimoto Yasushi will be in charge of the planning and original work, and also casted in the drama is Ando Tamae, Sakata Tadashi, Kiminaga Keisuke, and Takahashi Hitomi.
Now that's an interesting concept for a drama. It's something like a "teacher by day, idol by night". Quite surprised at the reversed role.A 17 year old playing as a 38 year old who acts 17. Reverse Trap FTW!
Now I wonder if any part of the story is real......
Sabadoru will air every Friday night starting January 13th, at 12:53AM JST. The show has 12 episodes planned. In addition, Mayuyu's upcoming single [Synchro Tokimeki] will be the theme song for Sabadoru. It will release on February 29th.
