Starring

Arata YAMANAKA (Love Exposure, Tokyo Cruel Police)
Takuro KODAMA (Attack on Titan: The Movie, Memoirs of a Murderer)
Noriko KOHARA

Introduction

This is a suspense movie depicting an office worker with a mental illness who is tempted by his male colleague and becomes corrupt, and gradually delves into the evil side.
Various cases of complex human psychology is presented, such as duality and insanity lurking in one person, a couple’s love and bonds, conflict between the ideal and reality, and envy stemming from masculinity.
With schizophrenia, what you think unconsciously in your mind, potential desires, inferiority complexes, etc. can be heard as auditory hallucinations just as if others are speaking them to you.
Although this disease’s name is not mentioned in the movie, it appears as a suspense depiction based on such conditions.

Masanobu SAWADA (38), a company employee, is silly, serious, clumsy and purely characterful, and works for “Oligo Science”, a company that provides scientific consignment services. SAWADA is married, and is loyal and loves his wife in his own pure way.
His wife suffered from psychological issues due to infertility, and had depression. She was barely able to commute from her home to the supermarket, and found it difficult just to take care of the housework. SAWADA was supporting his wife dedicatedly, but due to the stress of nursing her, he himself also had schizophrenia, and he was suffering from the illusion of others at work talking bad about him. There was a lot of stress in the workplace, and the surrounding employees who did not
know anything spoke negatively of the tired-looking SAWADA. SAWADA felt stuck between work and home, and his conditions gradually worsened.
There was a female worker named Minako, who like SAWADA and was a target of these rumors and bad-mouthing. Minako also had issues with her husband and was stuck between home and the workplace.

Although SAWADA was not conscious of this, he sometimes was mesmerized by her beauty. In addition, SAWADA had a dark past of being beaten by his father when he was little, and this memory would sometimes haunt him in the form of a PTSD flashback. Because of this, SAWADA
subconsciously had an inferiority complex. Meanwhile, KISHIMOTO, a male worker from an overseas company, joins his department as a colleague.
KISHIMOTO, unlike the quiet SAWADA, was able to get along with others right away, was very quick on his feet, and looked like a confident and masculine man. SAWADA gradually becomes close with KISHIMOTO, but the more he related with KISHIMOTO, he began to notice his bizarre and violent nature, and gradually becomes involved in a murder case.
However, while feeling a sense of fear, SAWADA is gradually fascinated by the charismatic nature of KISHIMOTO and his dangerous charm. KISHIMOTO frequently tells SAWADA to “become more true to your instinct”, and leads him to the path of evil.
Although SAWADA loved his wife, he was exhausted from taking care of her, wanted to set his heart free, and eventually becomes heavily involved in an affair with Minako. Like SAWADA, Minako was also having a difficult time at home, was disliked by her female coworkers and felt alone, and she felt like she could relate to and become close to SAWADA. But in order to protect herself in the company, Minako also speaks badly about SAWADA with her other female coworkers and tells everybody that she is being “pursued by SAWADA”. Because of that, Minako infuriates SAWADA.
KISHIMOTO tempts SAWADA to kill Minako and the other coworkers and retaliate. SAWADA, after hesitating, carries out the murder of Minako, dismantles the body and sends the body parts to the employees. SAWADA gradually opens up a crazy side that sleeps within herself. Right after this, KISHIMOTO sleeps with SAWADA’s beloved wife, and rapes her right in front of SAWADA. Going crazy from anger and sadness, SAWADA kills his wife on the spot and challenges KISHIMOTO directly.
However, in the end, he finds out that KISHIMOTO did not even exist in the first place. In order to overcome his inferiority complex, SAWADA had created a fictitious person called KISHIMOTO who was a representation of his inner desires and voices.
SAWADA, who finds out that everything that occurred is what he caused himself, deeply regrets this. Which all leads to his final decision…

Through Momoko’s growth, the drama not only presents a positive impression of LCC’s and aims to achieve a new standard in the airline industry, but it also appeals to the young audience a those who once wanted to work industry and haven’t given up, that Peach and being a pilot is an attractive company and occupation, respectively.

As the Tokyo Olympic Games neared, demand for LCC was showing promise for expansion.

Peach Aviation (Peach) is no exception, and young pilots are also increasingly being sought after. Momoko Inoue (26) is flying day and night as Peach’s co-pilot.

Although still a novice, her goal was to one day fly a plane as a captain. As always, she is sent off by her mother, who she lives with, and Momoko heads to Kansai International Airport.

 

The LCC workplace is rough.

Due to cost cuts, the number of staff members has been kept to a minimum, and even cabin crews assist the ground operations.

Also, because the LCC fare is about that of a high-speed bus, the customer base of people who didn’t fly until recently has been increasing.

Some customers have a poor understanding of LCC, and some customers complain about the service.

Today as well, group guests began to complain to the flight attendants just before departure.

They seem to be unhappy that they were seated apart from each other despite applying as a group.

The flight attendants explain that there is a possibility that the seats may be separated if they don’t pay for designated seats, but the passengers not only do not listen but also begin to shout “Call the pilot!”

Flight attendant Akari Asano (23) calls for help from the cockpit.

Captain Kohei Kimura (48) asks the flight attendants to try to settle them down, but Momoko, who was on board as a co-pilot, jumps out to the cabin from a sense of justice.

As they see a female pilot, the customers now begin to complain even more.

“You let a woman fly because you don’t have money!”

 

However, Momoko is a pilot who has also undergone formal training, and tells them that there is no problem with Peach’s flying.

The flight attendants follow in Momoko’s footsteps and begin to claim that they have pride in their work.

Then, the other passengers are impressed by their courage and begin to cheer for Momoko and the gang. The complaining passengers have no fight left in them, and slowly return to their seats.

As Momoko begins to return toward the cockpit, a male passengers calls on Momoko.

“For you to easily leave the cockpit like that – you are not qualified as a pilot.”

 

After the flight, Momoko and Akari are scolded by Captain Kimura and flight attendant Nanako Saito. They are at a Japanese izakaya where Daisuke is currently training. Akari complains to get over it, but Momoko is still stuck on what the male passenger told her.

The next day Yodogawa (60), the CEO, announces the introduction of new equipment and route expansion. Accordingly, it was decided that pilots would be supplied from the parent company.

One of the co-pilots who came along with several captains was Tetsuya Katsuki (30), the male passenger from that flight…

Exective Director

Yukiko MISHIMA

introduction

BIG BANG, BTS (Bangtan Boys), SEVENTEEN, SF9, Wanna One…,

Entertainment that has acquired the worldwide popularity among young females…. That’s “K-POP”!!

The beautiful singing voice, the ultramodern musical composition, flawless physical beauty and looks that leaves nothing more to be desired, well-trained dancing in perfect order…these are all with K-POP. What is the soul of it? And what is the real nature of K-POP idols that enables them to embody such exceptional charm?

This drama series is composed with ten consecutive dramas. The three main characters of Haruka, a dream seeker, Tadashi who is only concerned about picking girls up and one other boy are the three purely common place high school students. They happen to set their mind to aim at making themselves K-POP idols. Jumping into this big project, they go through extremely painstaking efforts, ambivalent conflicts and lots of breakdowns but are slowly but steadily growing their maturity up with their challenging spirits “in all seriousness”.

Haruka Ishiyama, Tadashi Yamamoto, Kaito Higa, they are ordinary just young boys of these days.

One day, Tadashi and Kaito go out to game some girls. However, they find those girls they try to hit up are like all possessed by “K-POP”!

Tadashi and Kaito are surprised by the girls’ almost abnormal enthusiasm about K-POP. They Haul Haruka in and the three together go and visit Shin-Okubo where is a mecca of K-POP. There the whole town is over frown by K-POP information. They are shocked by the excessive frenzy of girls there.

Getting excited by this enthusiasm, they take the master at his word at a nearby café they drop in, “OK, we WILL be K-POP idols!?”  This is how they have decided on aiming at realization of this fancy haphazard!

Haruka, who has always been swayed by the other two and followed their whim, cannot refuse them this time either. Now, they truly start moving toward this project of making themselves K-POP idols. The first action they hit on to take is to turn to Tadashi’s elder sister to help putting makeup on their faces, the “K-POP idol makeup” which is their very first time face makeup experience ever since they were born.

Haruka who follows the other two boys reluctantly has his face made up and finds a different face in the mirror, and surprisingly, he feels sort of excited.  In his mind, something begins to sprout to support this totally crazy exercise. Aoi, who knows Haruka from childhood, also gradually starts feeling some difference in Haruka which is seemingly changing his passive character to the active side.

They start studying K-POP with help from the café master and the regular café customer who has a mysterious atmosphere called Mayumi, and begin to embark on this ambitious project of making themselves K-POP idols. In an unexpected turn of chances, these three boys come to make a group with Haruto Nishijima, a senior student of the same high school and a K-POP lover and also can dance, and a classmate called Daisuke Kawaguchi who is good at singing rap. Now, the group has five members and makes strenuous training efforts.

To add to the group, one junior student of the same high school, Takumi Yazaki has come to join them, strongly interested in their activities. The severe training imposed on all of them stirs up the fire of their passion of “seriousness” in their minds.

The above is how the seemingly foolhardy challenge of the three boys begins to come on a track to K-POP idols!
