Ayase denies relationship rumors at "Hotaru no Hikari 2" press conference

Today was the press conference for NTV's upcoming summer dorama "Hotaru no Hikari 2" starring Ayase Haruka (25), and many reporters were curious to get a response from Ayase about her alleged relationship with actor Osawa Takao (42). Unsurprisingly she clearly denied the rumors. "There is nothing like that going on (between us)," she said.

"Hotaru no Hikari 2" is the sequel to the popular drama series that aired in the summer of 2007. The story is based on a novel by Hiura Satoru and focuses on the life of Hotaru, a so-called "himono onna". Himono as in "dried fish", because she's a woman who refrains from love and rather lies around at home. The first season started with Hotaru ending up living together with the director at her workplace played by Fujiki Naohito (37). Eventually she experiences what it means to fall in love and this time she even starts to think about marriage.
Yasuda Ken (36), who will appear in the second season again, gave an advice to couples who are currently thinking about marriage. "I think it would be better to start living together before making that decision," he said. Ayase was impressed and responded, "I'll keep that in mind." About filming the sequel she said, "I'm happy that we are filming part two and will enjoy the filming."
Fujiki is happy too and joked about his age, "I'm happy that the drama is returning. It's been three years and the director is still the director, except that I've grown older… That's my personal problem, though."
Usuda Asami (25) also attended the press conference.
"Hotaru no Hikari 2" will be the new Wednesday 10pm drama of NTV and start with the first episode on July 07. The first episode will be 15 minutes longer. (Kawaii Joyuu)
