Tetsuji Tamayama and Nozomi Sasaki to star in new HULU drama

Tamayama Tetsuji and Sasaki Nozomi will be starring in the new Hulu original drama series "Ame ga furu to kimi ga yasashii" (You are gentle when it rains) which was written by Nojima Shinji over a period of 3 years.

The drama which consists of 8 episodes and will be shown this autumn, is based on the theme of sexual addiction and features the two actors as a newly-married couple who are in emotional turmoil due to the wife's sexual addiction. Nojima said that although stories about people straying or having extra-marital affairs are the trend these days, he has no interest in these themes thus he decided to write this story which shows the guilt which the wife feels about her illness and her husband's struggle to understand her issue as well as the conflict between physical needs and emotions. As he wants to write about people in extreme situations which is unlikely to be shown via terrestrial networks, Hulu said to him that they would be OK with showing a drama with such a theme so he was very grateful to be able to offer such a story to their viewers.

Tamayama plays Tachiki Nobuo, the assistant editor of a monthly literature magazine while Sasaki plays his wife Aya who used to be a model for a magazine and works at an old folks' home after getting married. Although the couple seem to be having a happy life, Aya is actually suffering from sexual dependency. She would wear red clothes which she usually doesn't wear whenever the weather is sunny and these are the days when she has the uncontrollable urge to sleep with other men. While trying to put on a pretense in front of Nobuo, Aya tries to seek treatment and goes for counselling. However, things start to get out control when Aya has sex with a man she comes to know from a dating site and he turns out to be Nobuo's colleague.

Tamayama said that as he doesn't have a lot of experience acting in love stories, he feels shy about looking Sasaki in the eye but will try his best to play the role of Nobuo who loves Aya very much. On the other hand, Sasaki said that Aya is a very challenging role for her and she hopes to be able to achieve new heights in her acting career through this character.

Filming is currently in progress.
