Itoshii Uso: Yasashii Yami live-action drama adaptation is based on a manga of the same title by Aimoto Mizuho. The suspenseful romance unravels when Imai Nozomi (Haru) reunites with Amemiya Shuichi (Hayashi Kento), whom she always believed was her unrequited love. Quite the opposite, he appears to show interest towards her at their junior high school reunion. However, they get tangled in a series of incidents where their friends are dying one by one. The live-action series is said to include an original development, which is not depicted in the manga’s storyline. Ushio Kentaro, who is known for his works in Downtown Rocket (2018) and Hanzawa Naoki (2020), will be the screenwriter.
Haru will portray Imai Nozomi, a manga artist who unfortunately fails her debut and is now working as an assistant. Hayashi Kento as Amemiya Shuichi is Nozomi’s first love. He is now a president of an IT company.
