Screening event of new NHK morning drama "Massan"

The screening event of new NHK morning drama "Massan" was held at the TV station's HQ on 3 September which was attended by the cast members Tamayama Tetsuji, Charlotte Kate Fox and Izumi Pinko. The drama which will begin its run from 29 September, is set in 1920 when Kameyama Masaharu (Tamayama), the heir of a brewery in Takehara, Hiroshima, who has the nickname of Massan, strives to make the first domestically-made whisky in Japan. His wife Eri who was from Scotland, will be played by Fox who comes from the US. Izumi plays Massan's mother in the drama.

Filming already began in May. Tamayama revealed that when he saw how hard Fox tried to memorise the Japanese lines, he felt that he couldn't complain about how tough the filming was and that this filming period is an important milestone in his career.
