Umika Kawashima (川島海荷)
ぴんとこな 핀토코나 歌舞伎爭霸
130 min x 1 ep / 60 min x 9 eps｜10 episodes
For the first time ever, a serial drama about the exotic, 4-century old world of kabuki theater comes to television from an original comic series that sold over a million copies in Japan. Pintokona, a kabuki term, refers to a handsome and manly nature but with a solid core. Despite being born into a famous kabuki acting family, scion Kyonosuke Kawamura has zero motivation. Conversely, Ichiya Sawayama, who was born into a household with no kabuki pedigree whatsoever, is determined to rise on talent alone. The story begins when these two diametrically opposed youths fall in love with the same woman, Ayame Chiba, and then go on to vie with each other to become Pintokona, both as actors and in real life. Sparks fly for these two young men of completely different personalities and circumstance against the colorful backdrop of kabuki in a magnificent tale of love, art and youthful passion.

The condemned Katakura house is so old it is a wonder it hasn't yet been torn down. Its tenant, a widow named Chiyo, has just completed a Buddhist service memorializing the 7th year of her husband's passing and is preparing to move out to make way for the home's destruction amid urban development. Meanwhile, her grown eldest son shows up suggesting they live together while her eldest daughter, Setsuko, brings talk of a suitor for her mother - now pushing 60 - to remarry. The suitor, Uichi Kurosaki, strikes Setsuko as an ideal companion for her mother as he is a friend of Chiyo's late husband, has no children and plenty in retirement savings. But the other daughter is adamantly against the proposition, sparking a fight among siblings whose varying interests clash in this revealing depiction of family, compassion, empathy, hard reality and richness of spirit.
The Hanawa Sisters
華和家の四姉妹 하나와가의 네자매 華和家的四千金
80 min x 1 ep / 60 min x 10 eps｜11 episodes
Four grown sisters return to life under one roof in the Hanawa home, headed by their “hunk” of a father and perennially girlish mother (who adores her husband and never doubts for a moment that his feelings are mutual). Although raised under the example of a seemingly model marriage, the “four Hanawa sisters” themselves are either divorced, devoutly single, in the market for a husband or simply unlucky in love. The second eldest daughter, Takemi, is the “black sheep” of the family who returns home after multiple divorces and three kids in tow. Having lived her life as honest to her own feelings as possible, she can’t help but stir trouble - leading to some hilarious predicaments - and always commands the center of attention, earning her such nicknames as “problem child”, “love-starved man-killer” and “she-devil.” “Marriage”, however, is the constant operative word in this domestic drama of women in search of a formula to happiness.
