PRICELESS JDrama Ep 5 Recap
This is a short recap of what happened in ep 5. This is another good drama this season. Moai came to stay with Kindaichi and Saya. Moai is a bit freaked out by the residents. The kids fixed up the cart the ramen shop owner left for Kindaichi but they still don't know what to sell. Saya doesn't want to share the room with 2 men so she goes to the Lolita girl room but that girl keeps talking so she ended up not getting any sleep. The trio went to the bartender's shop and had some hotdog sandwiches. They decided to sell the hotdogs in front of their own company! Kindaichi sure is a super optimistic guy. Moai is embarrassed and wanted to go back. The crowds gather and said some bad things. Good thing there's still that young guy who is on Kindaichi's side. He asked for one hotdog and everyone started buying. This sorta thing only happened in drama. The hotdog sells really well. Moai got an interview at another company The president is doing his evil things again ending the contract with another long-term partner factory. Kindaichi's gf showed up and asked to have a talk with Saya. She said she loves Kindaichi and asked how Saya feels about him. Saya said she has no feeling for him. The gf is not satisfied and just left leaving $200 to pay for the tea on the table! I didn't know she's that rich! The president saw the long line of people buying hotdogs from Kindaichi and decided to go check it out. He went to the beginning of the line and his evil right hand mand asked Kindaichi to sell them a hotdog but Kindaichi said they should line up since everyone also lined up. The president said fine and went back to the end of the line but his employees all started making way for him. It was like the Mose's staff effect. Kindaichi had no choice but to sell him the hotdog and asked for 300 yen ( about $3.5). They are shocked that he dared to ask money from the president but gave it to him anyway. They turned around to leave but Saya called after him and asked why he fired her and Kindaichi. The president asked "Just what do you think the 2 of you can do?" Saya couldn't say anything but Kindachi said, "It's not just the 2 of us." Moai showed up saying they can serve soup along with the hotdog using the thermal bottle. Kindaichi asked the president, "What can you do alone?" Kindaichi told him the soup is 200 yen but the president said he doesn't need and left. The crowd hesitated to buy the soup but the young guy who bought the first hotdog asked for the soup then everyone lined up again to buy the hotdog and soup. At night, Saya decided to come back to the room and sleep in the middle of Kindaichi and Moai!! I guess she considered them as friends now. In the morning Yoko (Kindaichi's gf) 's dad came and have breakfast. He seems like a guy who had been through poverty. He commented that the breakfast was delicious. Kindachi asked, "Who are you?" End of ep 5 I wonder if there will be any romance between Saya and Kindaichi. It seems Yoko's dad wants Kindaichi to work for him and Kindaichi starts to work on the thermal bottle project or something. Look forward to monday!!

Trailer: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNDUxNTkwMDQ0.html Kimura Takuya portraying a man who is walking at the bottom of his life! Kindaichi Fumio (Kimura) is a popular and friendly office worker at his company, but for some reason the top brass of his company aren’t too fond of him. One day he is suddenly being faced with a crime he can’t remember that he committed and gets chased out from his position. In the blink of an eye he becomes penniless, hopeless, and homeless. However, he happens to meet two children who have no money just like him and thanks them as he learns how to survive in the world without money. Despite this time of adversity, he keeps on plunging forward and never loses his positive attitude. He’s not only one going through a major change. His unreliable boss (Nakai) and the plain female accountant (Karina) gradually start to get influenced by Fumio for the better as well. ‘PRICELESS’ is a heartwarming comedy about a man who is struggling to get back on his feet after reaching the absolute bottom in his life. Kimura and Nakai have already worked together for the movie ‘HERO’ (2007), but Karina is a new name on the list of supporting actresses. He seems to be very enthusiastic about this drama and the Olympics inspired him to make great teamwork his top priority for this project. It will be interesting to see whether the viewers will be able to feel the great teamwork and chemistry on screen as well.
Kimura Takuya to live in poverty for new Monday drama ‘PRICELESS’
On August 14th, it was announced that SMAP’s Kimura Takuya will be starring in Fuji TV’s new “Getsu 9″ drama for the upcoming fall season. The drama with the tentative title ‘PRICELESS‘ revolves around a salary man who falls into a life of destitution after being fired from his company. Although it will already be Kimura’s ninth starring role in a “Getsu 9″ drama, it will be the first time for him to play a character living in poverty. At first everything seems to go well for the protagonist – living a satisfying life as a bachelor and working at the middle management of a major company. He’s also on good terms with his co-workers, but one day he gets wrapped up in an intrigue and ends up getting fired for something he hasn’t done. Before he even realized, he had become a penniless man without a phone and no place to stay. By chance he happens to get acquainted to other poor children at a park and gradually begins to realize that there are many important “priceless” things in life that you can’t buy with money. ‘PRICELESS’ is based on an original script by Furuya Kazunao (‘Ninkyo Helper’, ‘37-sai de Ishani Natta Boku’). It’s said to be a humorous drama with a lovable and cheerful protagonist who never loses his positive attitude despite those tragic turns. His positive attitude even causes the change of his unreliable boss – played by Nakai Kiichi – and one of his female colleagues, an introverted accountant played by Karina. Just before the start of the filming, Kimura stated, “Our Japanese athletes at the London 2012 Olympics showed us impressive and PRICELESS teamwork. The staff, my co-stars and I want to form just as great of a team and make this drama our own.” Nakai commented, “You better not miss any second of this fast-paced drama!” Karina, whose character will eventually become the love interest of the protagonist, is also looking forward to the filming. She said, “I’m nervous since it’s my first time working together with Kimura and Nakai. My character sounds plain, but I still want to give it my all.” The producer added, “We want to give people courage and hope with a protagonist that still lives every day to the fullest despite having lost everything.” ‘PRICELESS’ is scheduled to air its first episode in October.
