Doctor X ~ Gekai Daimon Michiko
Date: From 9.00 p.m., Thursdays, from 18th October 2012
Station: TV Asahi


Synopsis:
36-year-old Daimon Michiko (Yonekura Ryoko) is a sexy freelance surgeon. Not affiliated to a university hospital’s medical department, she moves around to various hospitals while attached to the dodgy ‘Doctors’ Agency’. She observes working hours strictly, does not accept chores where a medical license is not needed, and is also uninterested in the power struggles characteristic of hospitals. Her private life and work experience is shrouded in mystery, her fees several orders of magnitude higher but she is a battle-hardened first-rate surgeon with the instincts of a genius. While there are ugly rumours that she left the medical community because of money problems and medical malpractice, no one knows the person she really is.

Superfly to sing for Yonekura Ryoko’s upcoming drama



Superfly’s new song “Force” has been chosen as the theme song for TV Asahi’s upcoming drama series, ‘Doctor X ~Gekai Daimon Michiko~‘, starring actress Yonekura Ryoko.

This will be Superfly’s 2nd consecutive season to sing a theme song for a drama. She previously sang the theme song for TBS‘ summer drama series, ‘Summer Rescue ~Tenku no Shinryojo~‘.

Superfly commented on “Force” saying, “The power that reveals your true self, the power of love, the power of belief, the power to show your weaknesses… Like the various powers that overflow from the bottom of our hearts, it’s a powerful song. I’m really looking forward to how the drama’s visuals and song will synchronize.“

As her first time teaming up with Superfly, Yonekura seemed very pleased with the theme song. “As the song’s title suggests, the song is filled with powerful meaning, and I believe it’s a song that will give you motivation. Like the song’s image, I would like to do my best to become a strong doctor,” she expressed.

‘Doctor X ~Gekai Daimon Michiko~’ will air every Thursdays at 9:00 pm starting sometime in October.

'Doctor X' first ep reaches 18.6% rating as Yonekura enjoys first public bathhouse experience.

Actress Ryoko Yonekura had her first public bathhouse experience while filming TV Asahi’s new drama “Doctor X ~Gekai Daimon Michiko~,” which airs Thursday night from 9 p.m.

The drama revolves around the unusual lifestyle of a charismatic freelance surgeon, Michiko Daimon, played by Yonekura, who works at multiple hospitals. Michiko is not your average doctor, oozing sex appeal and wearing miniskirts under her white coat. Under a special contract, which allows Michiko to leave her work at 5 p.m., she enjoys her “after 5” life by dancing at clubs, playing Mahjong, and going to hot springs and public bathhouses.

During filming, Yonekura, 37, visited a public bathhouse in Tokyo for the first time in her life. She said she enjoyed soaking in the bath against a huge wall painting of Mount Fuji, TV Asahi reported.

When it comes to Yonekura’s own “after 5” life, she said she is not unlike her character. “I do love going out and drinking sake, but I go to the gym to keep in shape. I also do exercises while listening to the radio.”
