One day in early August, I was hit by a heat wave that almost gave me heat stroke in the morning. There was some kind of filming going on along the river in Seiseki Sakuragaoka (Tama City). Actress Mugi Kadowaki (29) showed up at the scene a little after eight in the morning. (Beside her, I could see Fumiya Takahashi (20), a model and a rising actor.
Kadowaki was filming for the TV drama “Ukiwa” (TV Tokyo), which is currently airing. Kadowaki plays an ordinary heroine who is unfaithful to her husband, and Takahashi plays a part-time clerk at Kadowaki’s part-time workplace. Furthermore, Naotaro Moriyama (45) is playing the role of a husband who is unfaithful to his wife, which is also a hot topic.
The two are filming a scene where they walk along a river while exchanging words. While the camera is rolling, they look cool. However, as soon as the camera cuts to the scene, they take a break in a tent, looking as if they are having a hard time shooting under the blazing sun. Kadowaki was holding two ice packs in his hands and holding them to his face. I hope she can survive the bad weather and get through the shoot.
