The woman with long, beautiful hair brushed back with her right hand and staring off into the distance is actress Ryoko Shinohara (50), who is looking very glamorous.
In late September, as the lingering summer heat continued, a group of actors including Ikusaburo Yamazaki (37) and Akiyoshi Nakao (35) were in front of a courthouse in Yokohama City. Apparently, they were filming “Hyena” (TV Tokyo), an autumn drama that will start airing in October. This is the first Japanese remake of a Korean lawyer drama, in which Shinohara plays a lone wolf lawyer.
A veteran entertainment reporter analyzes her recent entertainment activities as follows.
In August of this year, Shinohara celebrated her 50th birthday and went on a live tour for the first time in 26 years. The following month, she released “Koishisa, Sasenashisa, Kokkyo koto to 2023,” and her singing career has been increasing. As for acting, this is her first starring role in a terrestrial drama in three years, since her second role in “Haken no Hinkaku” in 2008. Due to the impact of the reports of her alleged infidelity, her appearances in recent years have been centered on distribution works and supporting roles, so this would be the perfect opportunity for her to make her presence known.
In her personal life, she divorced actor Masachika Ichimura (74) in 2009. Shortly after that, allegations of an affair with a Korean singer surfaced.
The most important thing to remember is that you can’t get a better deal than a good deal on a good deal on a good deal on a good deal on a good deal on a good deal on a bad deal on a bad deal. At “Masachika Ichimura’s 50th Anniversary LIVE” held in July this year, he appeared as a surprise guest. They sent each other roses and sang a musical song together to the delight of the audience.
As Shinohara enters her fiftieth year, we look forward to seeing her return to the world of work.
