Legal High
Date: From 9.00 a.m., Tuesdays, 17 April 2012
Station: Fuji TV


Synopsis:

Komikado Kensuke (Sakai Masato) passed the bar exam while studying in the law faculty of a third-rate university and opened a law firm. A person with character defects, he is cranky, caustic, temperamental, cynical, proud and spendthrift; loves money, prestige and women. Because of that, he has the worst reputation within the legal profession. But he has never once lost a case and will do whatever it takes because of his conviction that “winners are right”. The people around him are skeptical of his way of doing things. However, Komikado gradually realises that his vision of justice is a pipe dream, and begins to remember the spirit of fighting and not giving up that he had forgotten. Mayuzumi Machiko (Aragaki Yui) is an earnest rookie lawyer who has a strong sense of justice and is passionate about the socially vulnerable but tactless and inflexible. A strange turn of events result in the two of them working together as colleagues, but the two of them fight like like cat and dog, and clash over almost everything.

Suzuki Kyoka to guest star as Sakai Masato’s ex-wife in Fuji TV drama ‘Legal High’



On May 10th, it was announced that actress Suzuki Kyoka (43) will make a guest appearance on the May 22nd broadcast (6th episode) of Fuji TV’s ‘Legal High‘ (Tuesdays, at 9PM). She will play the ex-wife of Sakai Masato (38).

Suzuki will play Keiko, the ex-wife of the protagonist Komikado. Keiko is a lawyer who has never lost a case and previously worked at the same law firm with Komikado. She chose, after enduring months of the failed marriage, to move to the United States to practice international law. The episode will follow the divorce proceedings of a famous couple. Komikado will represent the husband, while Keiko will represent the wife. The fierce courtroom battle between the former couple will unfold in the episode.

Suzuki, who has not costarred with Sakai since the 2004 NHK Taiga drama ‘Shinsengumi!‘, stated with a bitter laugh, “I needed to work at ‘full throttle 10 times (more)’ than in my normal roles,” but commented that “Working with [Sakai] granted me an enjoyable filming experience.” Sakai also commented on the excitement of the acting battle with Suzuki. “If I were to speak about unmerited honor, this would be the perfect example.”
