The actress Haruka Ayase (36) showed us an expression that would fit perfectly in a speech balloon. It was a morning in November this year, at a shooting site in Tokyo. The script held by a staff member had the words “New Year SP Drama” printed on it.
Ayase, a hard-bitten career woman, is married to Yutaka Takenouchi. It’s probably a New Year’s special of the popular drama “My Mother-in-law and Her Daughter’s Blues” (TBS), in which Ayase grows up as a mother-in-law to her daughter played by Moka Kamishiraishi. Last year, a New Year’s special was also aired on New Year’s Day,” said an employee of a commercial key station.
Ayase’s appearance was crisp, with glasses and a suit. It seems that they were filming a scene where she looks up at a building while doing an acrobatics.
Ayase has been active in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years since winning the Judge’s Special Prize at the “Horipro Talent Scout Caravan” in 2000, and has starred in many films, including the NHK historical drama “Yae no Sakura”. We hope you can feel her overwhelming aura in these treasured photos.
Sweating and sprinting up a hill
In the middle of the day in November 2007. In the middle of the day in November 2007, a large number of film crew members gathered in Ota Ward, Tokyo, to film a drama. Ayase was wearing a suit and Moka Kamishiraishi was wearing a G-jacket.
They were filming a special drama that aired on New Year’s Day 2008, a sequel to “My Mother-in-law and Her Daughter’s Blues,” which I mentioned at the beginning of this article. Ayase and Kamishiraishi showed no signs of fatigue as they ran down the slope with their hair in a frenzy.
Ayase and Kamishiraishi showed no signs of fatigue as they ran hard down the slope, shaking their hair. The scene they were filming that day was a scene where a stroller with a baby in it went downhill and the two of them rushed to chase it down.
Going to a Yakiniku restaurant with a Korean star who is said to be her “boyfriend
In the July 16, 2008 issue of Josei Seven, it was reported that Ayase was in a “top-secret relationship” with Korean TV personality Noh Min-woo. Although it was a report of a passionate relationship between two nationally known actresses, the offices of both parties completely denied their relationship. However, about a year and four months before the report, this magazine had witnessed the two having a “date” at a yakiniku restaurant in Tokyo.
A little after 7 p.m. in mid-March 2007, we spotted Ayase getting out of a minivan in Hiroo, Tokyo. Ayase met up with a woman who appeared to be an acquaintance, and they entered a nearby high-class yakiniku restaurant, S. Just five minutes later, a tall man wearing black-rimmed glasses appears in a cab and enters the same restaurant alone. It was the rumored Noh Min-woo.
Two hours later, the stylish man left the restaurant again, this time alone, and got into a cab and drove away. Five minutes later, Ayase emerged from the store with a satisfied smile on her face and walked away, looking around.
Satisfied face shown after shopping
It was an afternoon in April 2007. It was an afternoon in April 2007, and I saw Ayase in front of a multi-tenant building in Ebisu, Tokyo. When she got out of the pickup truck, she looked around suspiciously, but soon smiled and went to the stairs of the building. Two and a half hours later, I left the building with a large paper bag in my hand. He must have been visiting a general merchandise boutique in the building. The satisfied look on her face showed that she had done a satisfactory shopping.
Ayase shows us a variety of expressions from time to time. The variety of her looks is probably what broadens her range as an actress.
