With the start of the new fiscal year and her drama, Amami who will turn 50 years old this year, expressed her wish to work hard this year and become an even better person. With a wonderful cast supporting her in this drama, she hopes to deliver a fantastic production with everyone's feelings and efforts.
During the event, Amami held an impromptu "questioning" of how her co-stars think of her. Tanaka revealed jokingly that even though he is actually older than Amami, she calls him "Tecchan" while he addresses her in the honorific way of "Amami-san" because he doesn't dare to drop the "-san" in case she flares up at him. Suzuki then chipped in to say that Amami's ability to assimilate into a group of middle-aged men like them is her strong point and weak point and they almost forget at times that she is the only woman among them. Denden praised Amami for her beautiful face which is balanced on both sides so it is difficult to draw a good potrait of her. Meanwhile, Oosugi said that they tried to play tricks on Amami in order to make her angry and that she behaves like a middle-aged man and woman at the same time which led her to nod in agreement. Kohinata then teased Amami for having nice long legs and described her as a man with a nice figure from her waist to her legs. Last but not least, Ookura said in jest that he's so scared of Amami that he might cry if she really gets angry at him.
Hayami said that during the filming, everyone is busy so he hopes to be able to whip up a meal for them at times. Upon hearing this, Amami praised Hayami for making a wonderful cake during Valentine's Day which made him remark that he feels like cooking has become his main job rather than acting.
When asked about what kind of interesting happenings they had on the set, Suzuki revealed that Amami set up a "Amami Bakery" in the studio where she arranged for catering services providing fresh bread, ham, cheese and vegetables to make declicious sandwiches for everyone. As such, he looks forward to the spread provided by Amami Bakery that he would skip breakfast and have his meal at the studio instead.
