Actress Satomi Ishihara, the actress that was chosen as the number one adult girl in the August 2012 issue of “and girl” fashion magazine now has another reason to smile and celebrate. She has been chosen to star in Fuji TV’s upcoming drama Shitsuren Chocolatier. The actress attended a press conference on January 9, 2014. When I saw this story, I knew that I had to write about it and give it my perspective. The drama is about a young man who has many struggles. He becomes a chocolatier because he wants to impress the girl and the married woman that he is in love with. Famous actor Jun Matsumoto plays the role of the chocolatier and Ishihara plays the role of the married woman.
With Valentine’s Day coming up next month, the cast talked about their own Valentine’s Day memories. Matsumoto said that he usually receives gifts from others. He said that he gave chocolate to a co-star of his during the filming of Kimi wa Petto in 2003. That co-star was an older woman named Koyuki. She was surprised by the action but Matsumoto also said that he was glad that she liked it. Ishihara also talked about one of her experiences. When she was in junior high school, there was a boy who was two classes above her that she always had a crush on from her first through her fourth year. She made him chocolate every single year until the fourth year when she heard from one of his friends that he did not like chocolate. So Ishihara says that she made him a madeleine that year. The press conference was also attended by Asami Mizukawa, Kiko Mizuhara, Junpei Mizobata, and the lovely young actress Kasumi Arimura. Born with the name Kuniko Ishigami, Satomi Ishihara was born on December 24, 1986 in the city of Tokyo.
