13-sai no Hello Work,” a bestselling children’s book by author Murakami Ryu, is getting a live-action drama series adaptation this winter. TOKIO member Matsuoka Masahiro (34) will star, accompanied by Kanjani8 member Yokoyama Yu (30) and actress Kiritani Mirei (21).

Published in 2003, “13-sai no Hello Work” is a guidebook aimed at junior high school students that introduces more than 500 jobs and occupations. The book has sold approximately 1.48 million copies since its release. An updated version titled “Shin 13-sai no Hello Work” was released last year and will serve as the basis for the drama series.

Matsuoka plays the role of Ogure Teppei, a 35-year-old policeman who dreams of being promoted to the First Investigation Division. One day, he suddenly slips back in time to 22 years earlier, at the height of Japan’s economic bubble. There, he meets his optimistic 13-year-old self (played by Tanaka Taketo). In order to help himself find the job and life that he hoped for, he has his younger self try out different kinds of work. It is said that more than 15 jobs will be presented in the drama.

Yokoyama plays a Tokyo University graduate who looks up to Teppei as an older brother. Kiritani plays a college student who works as a special teacher for prep school. Other cast members include Fubuki Jun and Furuta Arata.

The series will be aired on TV Asahi this winter, starting in January, in the Friday 11:15pm time slot.
