Fukuda Mayuko (福田麻由子): “Soredemo, Ikiteyuku” Press Conference

On June 16, there’s a press conference for the drama “Soredemo, Ikiteyuku”. Many of the drama’s main actors and actresses attended, including Eita, Mitsushima Hikari, Kazama Shunsuke, Tanaka Kei, Fubuki Jun, Tokito Saburo, Otake Shinobu, and of course Fukuda Mayuko.



Victim’s family:

Emoto Akira - Father

Otake Shinobu – Mother

Eita – Hiroki (oldest son)

Tanaka Kei – Kouhei (middle child, Hiroki’s younger brother)



Assailant’s family:

Tokito Saburo – Father

Fubuki Jun – Mother

Kazama Shunsuke – Fumiya/Kenji (oldest son, Hiroki’s sister’s murderer)

Mitsushima Hikari – Futaba (middle child)

Fukuda Mayuko – Akari (youngest child)


On the main website, comments of the actors and actresses at the press conference was noted. Of course, I’m only translating Mayuko’s comment.


When the incident happened, my character, Akari, wasn’t born yet. Since she did not know the details of the crime, out of everyone in her family, she’s a girl that seems the most normal. I want to portray her to be as normal as I can. Even though there are a lot of heavy scenes in the drama, at the shooting place, the atmosphere is always warm, that’s also another thing I want to convey to everyone.


The drama will be starting on July 7th, and every Thursday at 10pm. The first episode 15 minutes longer than usual.



- I think I can see a lot of possibilities of Akari being the only normal person that’s not plague with the past incident.

- Being ignorant means perhaps she’ll be the one to pull everyone, including the victim’s family, through the bad times (which I doubt). The victim’s family may even see her as their dead daughter/little sister at the end of the show. On the other hand, being ignorant also mean irrational and bratty, especially when she learns of the truth. She’ll may ended up blaming her family and I don’t know, run away from home. ^^;; Like I said, lots of possibilities.

- Akari (灯里) means a place that has light. Personal impression is that it means hope and a bright future. Her parents probably want her to grow up as normal and cheerfully as she can. Not telling her of the incident may be one of such reason.

- On the other hand, I see Eita’s character as the brother who want to forget but couldn’t (since he keeps blaming himself), while Kei’s character is the one that doesn’t forgive. Which means, Kei will probably the one to oppose Hiroki and Futaba seeing each other.

- But depending on the script, I think this drama could be really good. I’m very confident with the casts, but I’m crossing my fingers for the script.

- Random, but it’s kind of cute how Hikari and Mayuko coordinate their outfit similar. Sisters ♥

- Since the drama is on FujiTV, I really hope Mayuko, with the casts, will go on those drama special variety shows!!! *___* Like VS Arashi, or Summer Special Drama with Nakai and Tamori-san, etc… I’m looking forward to that.
