Shinoda Mariko turns into blonde yankee for new drama

14 Jun

Usually i don’t post anything non-related to jpop, but this one’s worth a look.

Ex-AKB48 member Shinoda Mariko(28) has been casted in TBS drama “Kazouku Mamori” (Premieres 4th July, 10pm) as a yankee(wild/rebellious) mother.

For this role, Shinoda went through a dramatic image change. From hair extensions, bright red lipstick, purple lenses to a gothic chain piercing that runs from her earlobe to lips, it is a complete transformation from her usual look.

“During the filming, i changed into a tough character and was afraid of nothing. Maybe it’d have been better if i became even tougher,” she said.

The drama focuses on the story revolving around 3 families, and aims to search for the meaning of “family”. Shinoda acts as someone who hates her father after her brother committed suicide. She lives happily with her husband and children, but continues to blame her father in her heart.

“There’s anger and hate because of love. Please look out for the scenes when i become violent,” she appealed.
