Get ready for the return of the King of Jdramas! Kimura Takuya leads TBS’ next Sunday golden drama timeslot with “A LIFE ~ Itoshiki Hito” (A LIFE ~ Beloved). He reunites with Takeuchi Yuko, heroine for his popular drama “Pride”, after 13 years,. Also joining him are Asano Tadanobu, Matsuyama Kenichi, Kimura Fumino, Nanao, Emoto Akira, Tanaka Min, Kobayashi Takashi, and Oikawa Mitsuhiro. With a huge cast, this is undoubtedly going to be the biggest drama to watch out for, next season. This is Kimura’s first drama two years since TV Asahi’s “I’m Home” in 2015. This is also his first drama after SMAP disbands on December 31.

He plays his 20th occupation as a skilled surgeon with this new drama. Original story is written by Hashibe Atsuko. The drama will start airing January 2017, Sundays, 9pm.

Synopsis
When Okita Kazuaki (Kimura Takuya) was starting out as a doctor, he was forced to resign from the hospital. He left his girlfriend Danjo Mifuyu (Takeuchi Yuko) behind and went to the US alone. 10 years go by and he comes back as a surgeon with outstanding skills to save his former teacher (Emoto Akira) from illness. His teacher is none other than his ex-girlfriend’s father. In the time that Okita was away, Mifuyu had married his own good friend Masao (Asano Tadanobu), who is now the deputy director and the heir of the hospital. To make matters worse, this friend was the one who plotted to drive him out form the hospital 10 years ago. Okita has to face all sorts of ordeals to save his teacher. But he never gives up amid the swirl of love, desire, friendship, jealousy and pride. Okita may be awkward but deals with patients with all his heart. His way of life gets the people working at the hospital to start asking themselves what real healthcare is.

I just cannot wait?! Love Kimura’s pairing with Takeuchi Yuko and excited for their reunion. XD The plot sounds very interesting and he will be portray his doctor role brilliantly like as always. The awkwardness aspect reminds me of Jang Hyuk in Beautiful Mind. Oh, I don’t want to be reminded of SMAP’s disbandment , but I am sure all of them will be alright. Looking forward to this drama!

I absolutely love love this drama. Bingo-watched over the weekend and could not get enough of Lee Young Oh (portrayed by the very handsome Jang Hyuk) and Gye Jin Sung, as well as, the entire cast. The writing was superb, we definitely need more stories like these. Soooo sad it was only 14 episodes (cut short due to ratings ), one of the most underrated dramas in 2016. Kudos to the screenwriter Kim Tae-Hee for creating such a masterpiece, I will be on the lookout for your other and future works. XD

Summary from Viki
Every day on the job is tense, dangerous and possibly lethal! But the dangerous situations are diffused without using force by the expert negotiator Joo Sung Chan (Shin Ha Kyun), who leads the police department’s negotiation task force. The team handles the most dangerous, volatile and high-risk situations that jeopardize the lives of innocent people. Hostage crises, terrorist threats and other major catastrophes await Sung Chan, Yeo Myung Ha (Jo Yoon Hee) and the other highly skilled team of negotiators when they come into work every day. Son Hee Sung (Yoo Joon Sang) is a thorn in their side as an aggressive broadcast journalist who tries to report on the many coverage-worthy events. “Pied Piper” is a 2016 South Korean drama series directed by Kim Hong Sun.
