2010-12-06 - AKB48 member Mariko Shinoda (24) will have a recurring role in Fuji TV's new Monday night drama series, "Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta." This will be her first time acting in a series on that network.

The show, which was revealed last month, stars Erika Toda (22) and Haruma Miura (20) as Natsumi and Shuji, two teachers at the same school who are engaged to each other. However, their seemingly happy relationship becomes threatened when Shuji unwittingly becomes involved with one of his students named Hikari, played by Emi Takei.

Shinoda will play Sayaka, a popular wedding planner who was classmates with Natsumi and Shuji during their university days. Although she once dated Shuji in the past, she now shares an apartment with Natsumi and supports the couple's marriage plans, at least until she realizes that her feelings for Shuji have not entirely disappeared.

"Taisetsu na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta" will premiere in January.
