Kinami Haruka to appear in FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "Kizoku Tantei"

Kinami Haruka will be appearing in the upcoming FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "Kizoku Tantei" starring Aiba Masaki which will begin its run from 17 April in the Mondays 9pm timeslot. The drama which is based on the suspense novels "Kizoku Tantei" and "Kizoku Tantei tai Onna Tantei" by Maya Yutaka, features Aiba as a mysterious man who calls himself a noble but his name, age and background are all unknown and has an interest in solving cases but does not actually do the reasoning himself because he is more keen to talk to the women he meets at the crime scenes. Due to his status as a nobleman, he behaves very gentlemanly towards women and is unafraid of standing up against those in power. With the help of his servants i.e. driver Sato (Takito Kenichi), maid Tanaka (Nakayama Miho) and butler Yamamoto (Matsushige) who helps him to inspect the crime scenes and look for clues, he is able to assist the police in solving their cases with his strong observation power. Co-stars also include Takei Emi who plays Takanori, a newbie police detective at loggerheads with the nobleman while solving the cases, police detective Hanagata (Namase) who works with the nobleman at the orders of his superiors, Igawa Haruka who plays a female detective Kitami who teaches Takanori about detective work and is regarded as her idol and Nakama Yukie whose character details are not known at the moment.

Kinami plays the role of Tamamura Yoriko who is the daughter of a company president and will appear in the first episode as the villa where the first murder case took place belongs to her father. She is a client of Kitami's detective agency where Takanori works at and Takanori gets invited to the party which Yoriko holds at the villa. Despite the shocking murder which happened, Yoriko is besotted with the nobleman (Aiba) who suddenly shows up at the villa to "investigate" the case.

When asked to comment how how she felt about working with Aiba for the first time, Kinami praised him for being very approachable and easy to work with. As for reuniting with Takei who played the lover of her husband in last summer's "Seiseisuru hodo, aishiteru", they are close friends in this drama so she expressed joy at being able to show her affection towards Takei's character through hugs and kisses on her cheek.
