Mako Ozaki (19) …… Karen Otomo
A perfectionist college student who loves nothing more than completing the to-do list she has set herself and making the most of her day. However, the only thing he hasn’t achieved is “romance”. I thought that if I became a university student, I would naturally get a boyfriend, but Makoto, who is full of schedules every day, has no chance to fall in love. My goal is to find a lover and become a perfect and cool modern person, but I don’t know how to start a relationship.
Comment from Karen Otomo (role of Makoto Ozaki)
When I first received this offer, the role was explained to me, and just like my sincerity, I live my life feeling rewarded and happy by measuring my time every day and completing my quota. , I was very surprised, “There was a girl who looked like me so much in the manga!” Makoto and himself have many things in common, but Makoto meets seniors he respects, such as Eita and Yuma, and even though he wants to start a relationship, he is worried because he doesn’t know how to start. I haven’t met that kind of person yet, so I feel that sincerity is one step ahead in that regard.
How will such sincerity continue to fall in love? I would be happy if you would warmly watch over and support me as I move forward while feeling nervous, worried, and conflicted within myself. Please look forward to it.
Eita Shimizu (20) ………… Yudai Toyoda
A second-year student who attends the same university as Makoto, she joins a programming circle created by her childhood friend Yuma. Good at games, smart, and efficient at everything. She has a poker face and doesn’t show her emotions much, but she likes cute things, and secretly uses a moe character as her game avatar. One day, the moe character is seen with sincerity, and he struggles to keep it a secret.
Comment from Yuta Toyoda (role of Eita Shimizu)
Since this is my first romantic comedy, I feel a little itchy and nervous. I’m really looking forward to seeing how I can express love through Eita’s filter. Eita, who I play, has a side of him that likes cute things. I’ve always liked cute things like dogs, cats, and characters, so I have something in common with Eita, and even before I acted, I felt a sense of familiarity with him. Also, Eita is a person who doesn’t show his feelings very much. If anything, I’m the type that clearly says I like what I like and dislike what I don’t like, so I think that’s a different part. Before filming started, I was able to ask about the image of Eita that the director envisions, so it was very helpful. Now, in my free time, I try to play smartphone games, go to internet cafes, practice blind touch, and actively spend my time touching things that Eita likes. I will do my best to play this role to the end. This drama will be broadcast on New Year’s Eve 2022 and New Year’s Day 2023. I would be happy if I could deliver a drama that everyone watching can enjoy the new year with a bright feeling. Please take a look!
Yuma Sakurai (20)……Honda Kyoya
2nd year game programming student. The director of the programming circle and Eita’s childhood friend. In addition to being kind and sociable, she is smart and admired by everyone. One day, at a cafe where he works part-time, he finds the sincerity of studying C and invites him to join the club. Yuma begins teaching one-on-one study to Makoto, who works hard.
Comment from Kyoya Honda (Yuma Sakurai)
I myself like Korean dramas and have watched many works, so when I heard that I would be involved in a Korean original work in this way, I was really happy. Yuma, who I will be playing, is like the leader of the circle, and is in a position to pull everyone along. I wonder if it’s different (laughs). Everyone likes him, but on the other hand, he seems to have a feeling that he doesn’t want to be hated, and there is a depiction of him being patient because he can’t say what he wants to say. I sometimes feel that way myself, so maybe we are similar. I think this drama will be a work that you can enjoy during the year-end and New Year holidays, so if you are relaxing at home, please watch it and have a good New Year’s Eve!
