”The original manga, I think it’s like seeing into myself as it speaks for the voices in the hearts of women around thirty, it hits straight to the point. To have this live action and acting in it, while it maybe incisive, I want to do a drama that gives the hope of wanting to live cheerfully and happily.”
Additional Note: Tarareba is an adaptation of the ongoing josei manga series by
Higashimura Akiko that revolves around Rinko and her best friends Kaori and Koyuki,
women around thirty who haven’t had much luck in their lives whether love or careers. They would often do girls gathering to offer each other support (by complaining & having
what if scenarios). Yuko will be playing the role of Koyuki.
