Synopsis:
The Hongos are a family of four who live at the foot of the nearly completed Tokyo Skytree. Hongo Yuji (Nishikido Ryo) who gave up his dream of music which he had pursued since his student days, now works in human resources at a machinery manufacturer. To put it in a good way, he is earnest, but in truth is a coward unable to take risks. All the words that come out from his mouth are idealistic arguments. Because of the wave of recession, his job is to tell staff older than him that they have been dismissed as a result of restructuring. It is a difficult role but he tells himself with resignation that it is his work.

However, before long it is his turn to be told that he has been laid off … … His wife, Sachiko (Mizukawa Asami), had taken advantage of her pregnancy to marry him. Now the mother of two children, she juggles several part-time jobs and works non-stop to earn money for the family. They are at their wits end. The family has hit rock bottom and is on the brink of collapse. Then one day, their daughter, Mako, picks up an abandoned pomeranian puppy which they name Skytree. This small incident is a big matter to the Hongos, and this broken family gradually begins the road to recovery......



Cast:


Nishikido Ryo as Hongo Yuji
The head of the Hongo family. He abandoned music which had been the dream he pursued as a student and now works at a medium-sized machinery manufacturer. To put it nicely, he is earnest, but is in fact a coward who cannot take risks. Every word that comes out from his mouth is idealism. Because of the wave of depression, his job is to tell employees older than him that they have been dismissed as part of the company’s reorganisation. It is a difficult role. However, he accepts it as his job. Then, some change comes upon him. And because of that, this time the roles are reversed and he is the one being told that he has been retrenched …




Mizukawa Asami as Hongo Sachiko
She married Hongo Yuji because she was pregnant. As a result of this, she was forced to put away her dream of being a nurse. She now has two children and because they cannot survive on her husband’s pay, she holds part-time jobs and works non-stop. Theirs is a harsh reality and she has to economise everyday. But she is a bright and cheerful mother to her children.




Taguchi Junnosuke as Hotta Katsuhiko
Hongo Sachiko’s high school schoolmate. A doctor who works at a general hospital. He is one of the “winners”, the exact opposite of Sachiko. One day, he meets her again for the first time in many years. After that, they see each other now and then. His candour and warmth repeatedly pricks at Sachiko who has led a difficult life and stirs her heart … …



Kuge Kokoro as Hongo Mako
This story’s narrator. The youngest child of the Hongo family. A first grade elementary school student. Her older brother’s words that the family will break down around the time Sky Tree is completed, gnaws at her and she is the only one worried about the family’s future. One day, she picks up a puppy and brings it home. Named ‘Sky Tree’, the puppy eventually becomes her buddy and begins to change this wretched family … …



Yamazaki Ryutaro as Hongo Dai
The unfortunate son who was born from the shotgun marriage that came about after his parents ran off together. He is somewhat coolly philosophical about the world and his pet theory is that his family will break down around the time Sky Tree is completed. He also has a strong desire not to make his parents worry about that and ends up covering it up with various lies.

KAT-TUN’s Taguchi Junnosuke will act alongside Nishikido Ryo in “Inu wo kau to iukoto”



It’s been revealed that KAT-TUN’s Taguchi Junnosuke will make an appearance on the upcoming drama, “Inu wo Kau to iukoto ~Sky to Wagaya no 180 nichi~“. The information was recently unveiled on the drama’s official website.

As we previously reported, “Inu wo Kau to iukoto” already stars NEWS/Kanjani8’s Nishikido Ryo, and Taguchi, who belongs to the same agency (Johnny & Associates), will play Horita Katsuhiko, a doctor and classmate of the main character’s wife (played by Mizukawa Asami).

The last time he and Nishikido acted alongside one another was in the 2005 drama “Ganbatte Ikimashoi“, while Taguchi himself has not had a recurring role in a drama series since “Yukan Club” four years ago.

“Inu wo Kau to iukoto” will air on Friday nights starting in April.
