9 Nov – Nanako Matsushima is set to make her TV comeback with a new series, "What Will You Do, Ieyasu?"
As reported on Epoch Times, the Japanese star, known for hit series "GTO" and horror flick, "Ring", will be working alongside Jun Matsumoto, the latter who is playing the titular role of Tokugawa Ieyasu.
Nanako herself has been cast as Odai No Kata, the mother of Ieyasu.
This is the first time in 20 years for Nanako to star in a historical drama, following "Toshiie and Matsu" back in 2002. It also marks her fourth collaboration with Jun, though the first time for playing his mother.
The two previously worked together in "Boys Over Flowers", where she plays the older sister to Jun's Tsukasa Domyoji.
Other actors joining the cast include Keiko Kitagawa, Jun Arimura, Junichi Okada, and Alice Hirose.
The upcoming series reportedly will revolve around the life of Tokugawa Ieyasu but seen in a different light.
