二度見に値するドラマ:「逃げるは恥だが役に立つ」 This Drama series Is Worth Watching Twice: ‘Nigeru wa Haji daga Yaku ni Tatsu’

f:id:turkeyrice:20210606174833p:plain

 アマゾンプライムで観れます。星野源さんと新垣結衣さんご結婚のニュースをきっかけに、改めて視聴しました。本当によくできたドラマです。当時以上に面白がれました。

 You can watch this serial drama on Amazon Prime. The news about the marriage between Hoshino Gen and Aragaki Yui made me feel like watching this drama again, so I did. This drama is surely good. I enjoyed it more than I had done before.

 このドラマを面白くしている最大の要因が、主役の2人の魅力であることは間違いないでしょう。当時、女優としてすでに不動の人気を博していた新垣結衣さんと、アーティストとして人気が急上昇していた星野源さんという、その組み合わせだけでワクワクしたのを覚えています。しかし、2度目の視聴で強く感じたのは、共演者の方たちの素晴らしさです。石田ゆり子さんのあの魅力ときたらどうでしょう。大人の女性としての艶めきはもちろんですが、それ以上に可愛らしさを感じます。古田新太さん、藤井隆さんといった個性的な俳優さんたちもいかんなく本領を発揮されています。

 The main reason that makes this drama so enjoyable is the attractiveness of the two stars for sure. At that time, I remember I was excited by the mere fact that this would be the drama co-starring Aragaki Yui, who was already a famous actor, and Hoshino Gen, who was becoming popular as an artist. However, I was also impressed by the supporting actors this time. How charming Ishida Yuriko was. She was surely coquettish as an adult but also cute even more. Some individualistic actors like Furuta Arata, Fujii Takashi, showed what they could do, too.

 さて、契約結婚という、特殊な関係にあるみくり(新垣結衣)と平匡(星野源)ですが、ここで浮き彫りになるのは、むしろ通常の夫婦関係というものの難しさです。契約結婚の間はむしろはしゃいでいた2人ですが、いざ本当の恋人同士になった途端、家事の分担という現実問題で生じる軋轢に悩むことになります。ハッピーエンドを期待させる最終回でまず描かれるのは、家庭と仕事の両立に悩み、投げやりな態度さえ見せるみくりの姿です。しかし、それを受け止め、真摯に向き合おうとする平匡の姿に涙があふれました。

 In this drama, the marriage between Mikuri (Aragaki Yui) and Hiramasa (Hoshino Gen) is a fake, because he just hires her as a maid, but what is highlighted here is the difficulties in the relationship between ordinary couples. They rather enjoy themselves while they pretend to be married but once they fall in love with each other, they begin to be troubled by a real-life problem, the division of household chores. What is depicted first in the last episode, which is supposed to be just a happy ending, is Mikuri showing even a devil-may-care attitude due to the distress caused by juggling a job and housework unsuccessfully at the same time. However, I was eventually moved to tears when I saw Hiramasa trying to accept her for what she is and deal with her problem seriously.

 こんなこという自分がいやですが、昨今のドラマにノレずに困っています。何が原因か特定できません。自分の感受性の問題かもしれません。5年も前のこのドラマに感じたのは、心から共感できる価値観でした。やっぱりそれが大切だと思えてしょうがありません。

 I hate to say it, but I can’t get into the mood for recent dramas. I don’t know the reason. It might be a problem of my sensibility. What I felt towards this drama, which was broadcast five years ago, was the senses of values that I could empathize from the bottom of my heart. I cannot help feeling that is the most important thing in watching dramas.
