Ishihara Satomi Takes on Medical Role for TBS J-dorama Unnatural by Screenwriter of We Married as a Job

2018 is still a bits away but I’m already gearing up to check back into J-doramas thanks to a certain adorable charming actress diving into a new project that interests me. After her rumored boyfriend Yamashita Tomohisa put on his white coat (for the third time) in this summer’s highest rated J-dorama with Code Blue 3, it’s Ishihara Satomi‘s turn to play doctor for the first time in her career.
