In the evening of August, I encountered Matsumoto filming the drama “Still Vowing Love? (TV Asahi). Walking on a pedestrian bridge in a brick-colored skirt was the lead actress, Marika Matsumoto (36).
“In the film, Matsumoto plays a wife who is suffering from sexlessness. This is her first starring role in a terrestrial drama.
The scene she was filming was one in which she exchanged a few words with actor Fujiwara Seiki (28), who plays a colleague 10 years her junior, and then left.
Afterwards, Matsumoto changed into a long white skirt and went to the same footbridge. She also changes into a pair of wide pants and changes her hairstyle. Standing on the pedestrian bridge again, she and Fujiwara start walking side by side.
After 8:00 p.m., it started to rain and the shooting ended. We thought we were going home in a pickup truck, but Matsumoto was headed for downtown Ebisu (Shibuya Ward). He enjoyed dinner alone at a Japanese restaurant and left the restaurant after 9:30. He left the restaurant a little after 9:30 p.m. and walked out in the pouring rain, soaking wet without an umbrella. ……
You are a busy star in a serial drama. Please take care of your health!
