NHK and Hong Kong broadcaster RTHK have teamed up to produce a two-part television drama titled "Shiawase no Soup wa Ikaga?" The project was first announced in April 2008 and has now been scheduled to air in Japan on March 26-27.
Hiroki Narimiya stars as a young man who becomes tired of his life in Japan and decides to go to Hong Kong. There, he comes across a woman (Annie Liu) and her grandfather (Wu Ma) who run a restaurant specializing in fish ball soup. As the story develops, he too learns the art of making the soup.
The drama was filmed in Hong Kong and Japan last May. The cast also includes Yuen Qiu, Jun Fubuki, and Sansei Shiomi.
