AKB48 member Yokoyama Yui will star in her first drama titled 'Hannari Girori no Yoriko-san [は ん な り ギ ロ リ の 頼 子 さ ん]' which will air in April 2018 on Kansai TV.
This drama is lifted from a manga titled the same works of Asano Yukiko. Tells about Shindo Yuriko, an employee of a 29-year-old cigarette shop living in Kyoto.
Although Shindo Yuriko has a keen eye gaze but she is a kind person. Shindo Yuriko meets Yamada Yuichi, a 26-year-old magazine editor who moves to Kyoto, and their love story begins.
Yokoyama will play Shindo Yuriko, while actor Nakao Masaki will play Yamada Yuichi.
Starring in this drama, Yokoyama commented, "To be honest I'm very surprised, but also happy, because this will be my first big drama series, I'm afraid that everything will be all right."
Regarding Yuriko's role, Yokoyama said, "I have a complex impression with Yuriko's character, I sympathize with Yuriko because people are always misunderstood with his sharp-faced nature, Yuriko's clumsy character and unable to convey his feelings well similar to my character that sometimes can not convey my thoughts well.
