While thinking about the meaning of adapting it into live action now, I tried my best to express various forms of love that are always unchangeable in any period of time. The shooting days that I lived as Iori is a treasure for me. Including those who have not meet I"s yet, I hope we can deliver it to as many people as possible. And if you love the manga, please enjoy the drama by reading it again."
