A cold wind from the sea was blowing in Sakuragicho, Yokohama. One afternoon, I witnessed the location shooting of the drama “Say it a Million Times, I Wish I Told You” (TBS) on a bridge just below the famous Giant Ferris Wheel.
Mao Inoue (36) plays the heroine who suddenly loses her lover, Takeru Sato (33) plays her lover, a man who becomes a ghost after being involved in a case, and Kenichi Matsuyama (37) plays a detective who can see the ghost and is chasing the truth of the case.
The drama is billed as a “fantasy love story,” but it is also full of mystery elements, and the internet is abuzz with speculation about the culprit.
Sato and Matsuyama performed enthusiastically in the light rain. While checking the movements of the many extras playing the roles of passersby, Sato and Matsuyama sat on the bridge and stared at the scene. Eventually their cue came and they stood up. Matsuyama walked out first, and Sato followed him. As we head into the final episode, it looks like we will not be able to take our eyes off the harrowing developments any longer.
