AKB48 member Mariko Shinoda will have a recurring role in Fuji TV’s new Monday night drama series, “Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta” which starts in January.
Mariko will play a wedding planner called Sayaka alongside the main stars Erika Toda and Haruma Miura. The plot is about two teachers who are engaged to marry but the man starts getting involved with one of his pupils. Mariko’s character knows both of the main characters from her university days and she once dated the man but now she lives in an apartment with his fiancee. However it seems there could be a love triangle scenario as Sayaka’s feelings for her former boyfriend have not entirely disappeared.
