Back in May, it was announced that Kuroki Meisa will be starring in a drama special titled “Danso no Reijin,” based on the life of the Manchu princess Kawashima Yoshiko.

It has now been revealed that former actress/singer Ri Kouran (also known as Yamaguchi Yoshiko) will be a character in the story, played by Horikita Maki.

As previously reported, the drama focuses on Kawashima, who served as a spy for the Kwantung Army and as a military leader for Manchukuo.

Yamaguchi, on the other hand, was a Japanese woman born in China, where she initially built her career as an actress.

Although the two were of different generations, they were said to be closely linked at one point.

In 2007, TV Tokyo aired a drama special about the life of Yamaguchi, and Kawahima was a key character in that show. In that version, Ueto Aya played Yamaguchi.

The supporting cast in “Danso no Reijin” includes Yuki Yagi, Miki Maya, Masatoshi Nakamura, and Masanobu Takashima. TV Asahi will broadcast the drama on December 6.

She had proven that she has talent in acting based from her previous works and has made a name in the drama industry. That said, I am pretty certain that Horikita Maki can take on this role and possibly launch her to greater heights. More importantly, I'm sure this role as a spy of some sort would be refreshing for us audiences. I am curious as to how she's going to portray that role.

This drama is definitely something to look forward to given that a subbing group would do so kindly to provide the translations. =)

Should've posted this in the main Horikita Maki thread or on the drama topic thread itself. Anyway, this is already outdated, so goodbye thread.
