Ishihara Satomi (石原さとみ)

Ishihara Satomi returns in Spring 2007 drama season with Hanayome to Papa.

"Hanayome to Papa
Date: Tuesdays, 9.00 p.m.
Station: Fuji TV
Cast: Ishihara Satomi, Tokito Saburo, Taguchi Junnosuke, Koizumi Kotaro, Shiraishi Miho
Synopsis: Ishihara plays a new 20-year-old OL working in the apparel company of her dreams. Her father, played by Tokito, loves his daugther excessively to the point that he compels his daugther to follow his house rules: 6.00pm curfew, no socialising with the opposite sex. Nevertheless, she falls in love with her colleague, played by Taguchi, and marries him." -- quote by jadefrost from

I'm thinking this is the rumors drama with Nishikido Ryo (NEWS/kanjani8) a while back, but now he is replaced by Taguchi Junnosuke (KAT-TUN). I do like Taguchi, but I rather see RyoxSatomi pairing. XD;; Sorry to all Taguchi fans. ^__^;;

The story seems like a fun family drama. And the cast seems alright, even though I'm only familiar with Ishihara Satomi, Taguchi Junnosuke, and Shiraishi Miho. This will be my first time watching Tokito Saburo and Koizumi Kotaro, but I doubt they will disappoint me as Dr. Koto's clinic (Tokito-san is in it apparently) had high ratings. And Koizumi-san seems pleasing to the eyes.. lol.. ^^;; But I can't wait to see Shiraishi Miho! Her characters are usually excellent and extremely fun to watch.

Hopefully, this time, the ratings will be extremely good and Ishihara Satomi will be able to make more fans. Seriously, I love this girl, but unhappy that she is not that popular, when comparing the Sawajiri Erika or Ueto Aya. Nurse Aoi was a pretty plain drama, and ratings weren't spetacular. Houten was good at the beginning but sucky at the latter parts, also it's a special making it unsatisfying as a fan. Her newest special, which just aired, Tsubasa no Oreta Tenshitachi2, well, I haven't watch it yet, just the special making. It's definitely a different role from her usual happy-go-lucky (Nurse Aoi) or ditzy (H2) which make it even better. I'm waiting for the soft sub at the moment. ^__^
H2 and Waterboys2 were extremely good, she gain me as a fan then, but I want even more good dramas from her. She was also good in Yoshitsune as well, which is the only reason I sat and watch the long show. I gave up near the end though because of her lacks of scenes.

She is great, but so under-appreciated. >_<;;
