Ayase Haruka reunites with Kimura Takuya in “Nankyoku Tairiku”



Actress Ayase Haruka (26) has just been revealed as the heroine of the big-budget TBS drama series “Nankyoku Tairiku” that will air this fall. This teams her up once again with SMAP’s Kimura Takuya (38), as they previously co-starred in the 2009 series “MR.BRAIN” and the 2006 drama special for the “HERO” franchise.

As announced in January, “Nankyoku Tairiku” focuses on the difficulties faced by Japan’s first Antarctic research expedition team, who were also the subject of the hit 1983 film “Nankyoku Monogatari.” In particular, one of the most notable aspects of that expedition was the miraculous survival of two of the dogs – out of the original 19 Sakhalin Huskies – even after the expedition team was forced to leave them behind and retreat from their base due to extreme weather conditions.

Kimura plays a researcher named Kuramochi Takeshi, one of the leaders of the team. Ayase plays the part of an elementary school teacher named Takaoka Miyuki, the younger sister of Kuramochi’s deceased wife. The role is said to be a painful one, as she deals with the loneliness and uneasiness caused by Kuramochi being on the dangerous Antarctic expedition.

“Nankyoku Tairiku” will premiere this October in TBS’s Sunday 9:00pm time slot.

Nankyoku Tairiku with KimuTaku Gears up for Premiere with Teaser and Behind-the-Scenes.



Are you ready for epic, folks? We’re talking feel good story of a nation rebuilding after a war, resilient and cute dogs, a snowy harsh environment, bromance up the wazoo, and did I forget to mention KimuTaku?

Next week sees the premiere of Nankyoku Tairiku (The Antarctic Mainland) on October 16th, the drama being both the 60th anniversary production from TBS and Kimura Takuya‘s one dorama of the year.

Below is the latest teaser trailer, which continues to look all sorts of awesome and realistic, and a 14-minute showcase video presenting snippets from the drama and a behind-the-scenes look at the lavish re-creation of 1950s Japan plus the cast filming for two months in the harshest North of Hokkaido (the stand-in for Antarctica).

Just watched episode 1... I know I'm going to cry... especially when it comes to leaving the dogs behind... and then learning that most of them died...

I think this drama will truly be a good one - I mean, KimuTaku will blow people away and make this drama worth watching... episode 1 already got high ratings.

One thing that I like about this retelling of the story is the focus on the relationship between the dogs and the people... I can't wait for the rest of the episodes - the budget alone makes me happy because you know they put a lot of work into it (^_^)
