NTV's Kei x Yaku - Abunai Aibou live-action series paves the way for many firsts for its dual protagonists, Suzuki Nobuyuki and Inukai Atsuhiro. This is the actors' very first project together and also the first time they will act in a boys' love (BL) series.
Based on the manga created by Kaoruhara Yoshie in 2019 and published by Kodansha, Kei x Yaku - Abunai Aibou (English title: Kei x Yaku - Dangerous Companion) challenges the limits of a public security investigator when restrictions have been set in doing his job. Kunishita Ichiro (Suzuki Nobuyuki) appeals to reopen a three-year-old investigation case called "Joker Case" but instead gets assigned with a different mission, the close observation of a young yakuza leader, Hanabusa Shiro (Inukai Atsuhiro). Unable to let go of the unsolved case, he conspires with Shiro by entering a fake love contract with him in order to investigate the Joker Case discreetly.
