The “aura of unhappiness” of Yasuko Matsuyuki (50) is a hot topic. However, this is a story from a drama. In the currently airing “Pending Train – 8:23, Tomorrow with You” (TBS), a panic and ensemble drama in which a train suddenly warps to the future and the passengers struggle to return to their original world, Matsuyuki plays a female president who was pessimistic about everything but now struggles for the sake of everyone.

FRIDAY” has been paying attention to Matsuyuki since soon after her debut. The magazine has paid close attention to Matsuyuki since her debut, and has shown us her sexy “side flashing stage greeting” at a preview screening of a movie in which she played the lead role, her dashing ride on a large motorcycle, and many cool date photos. Here is a look back at Matsuyuki’s past with some of her treasured photos.
She is the type of person who takes a chance and shatters it.
The role that established Matsuyuki as a popular actress was undoubtedly her role as Reiko Shiratori in “Shiratori Reiko desu ka! She is beautiful, but her high-handedness makes her seem like an outcast. The role of the beautiful but single-minded, single-minded, and extremely self-centered young lady was a perfect fit for Matsuyuki. Until then, she had played only mild-mannered women with good personalities, but in an interview with this magazine in 1992, she said,
In an interview with this magazine in 1992, she said, “I’m really a simple person, and I’m the type of person who likes to take a chance and smash things. （In the future, I will live a cool and elegant life as an actress and a woman” (June 26, 1992 issue).
She was speaking her true feelings.
True to her words, Matsuyuki has always shown us how “cool and elegant” she is, both as an actress and in her private life. In 2009, Matsuyuki attended a special screening of the movie “Colonel Kuhio,” revealing the white skin from her armpits to her arms, creating a bewitching mood. Matsuyuki played the role of a woman who is deceived by Kuhio but devotes herself to him,
If Kuhio appears, I’d like to pretend to be tricked and take advantage of it,” she said with a relaxed air.
She excited the audience with her relaxed comment, “If Kuhio appears, I would like to pretend to be deceived and take him for a ride.
Matsuyuki has matured as an actress. What kind of passionate performance will she give next?
