Vietnam and Okinawa to make TV drama
November 22, 2016 Ryukyu Shimpo
A press conference on a joint TV drama co-production between Okinawan and Vietnamese television broadcasting companies was held recently at the head office of Okinawa Family Mart in Naha City.
The drama aims to promote tourism, products and friendship between Okinawa and Vietnam.
The drama will be broadcast on Vietnam Television (VTV, the national television broadcaster of Vietnam) from the end of January to February 2017, on Ryukyu Asahi Broadcasting (QAB) in March.
It is a two hour-long love story, in which a reporter who works at a TV station in Okinawa meets a foreign student from Vietnam. And they fall in love. Karin Miyagi, a model and singer from Urasoe, Okinawa, plays the heroine, and Vietnamese Quang Sue plays the role of the lover.
Miyagi said, “This is challenging work being my first time as an actress. I want to buckle down and do the work with the feeling of being a member of the Okinawa national team.”
