With regard to playing a politician for the first time, Shinohara admitted that she does feel pressurised but will tap on the support of everyone around her to make an entertaining drama. The producer also suggested that she can focus on showing how an ignorant housewife like Tomoko grows as a result of this journey rather than think about how to convey the difficult concepts in politics. Meanwhile, co-stars Ishida commented that she is very excited to work with Shinohara for the first time and hopes to see how she will play Tomoko and Takahashi also expressed his anticipation about working with his charming co-stars.
Filming begins in early July.
