(I-Turn Drama) Suzuki Airi for The Television "Guys with dreams and ambitions are cool"


I-Turn is a drama based on Tetsuzou FUKUZAWA's famous novel, airing every Friday nights on TV Tokyo. This time, we interviewed Suzuki Airi, who is playing Mizuki, an office worker who has no interest in love, and is also Komae's subordinate.

A drama appearance for the first time in a while, which brought a lot of conflicts and remorse

―― This drama is your first acting work for the first time in a while, what did you feel on the set ?
The first thing I had to recall was how to remember a script. During the shooting, there was a lot of time I communicated with the director and the staff, and it was a lot of fun.
At the same time, I had a lot of conflicts with myself. Even though I thought "I want to act like this !" I couldn't really do it like I wanted, and I had a lot of remorse "I wish I could have done more".
But expressing yourself is the same for singing or acting, so I hope I can apply what I learned to my singing.

―― I heard there is a staff member with who you're familiar with.
There is a staff member who remembered me from the time we shot the drama "Piece" (2012) when I was still in high school, and that's how I got called for this role. As it has been many years, I was very glad.


Arata FURUTA is a lemon sour master *?!
t/n an alcohol drink made with shochu, soda water and lemon juice

―― I think you had many scenes with Tsuyoshi MURO and Daichi WATANABE, can you tell us more about how the shooting went ?
Honestly, I learned so many things. From the way they face their role to the way they are on the shooting place. I really tried to absorb anything I could from it.
To have "conversations" with others during the shooting was a big experience to me, and I was able to improve a lot. Also, they took me for meals between scenes and it was very fun.

―― What did you think about Arata FURUTA and Kei TANAKA's performance as yakuza. 
I didn't have any scene with Kanata-san. I had a scene with Furuta-san, and he had such an aura by just walking. He was so cool my jaw dropped (laughs) Furuta-san's action scene is a must scene.

―― Furuta-san said in an interview "my biggest achievement was when I taught Airi-chan how to make a lemon sour".
An achievement ? (laughs) I made my solo debut last year, and after the lives, everyone besides me was drinking beer, so I wanted to try out too and I ordered some. I'm pretty weak to alcohol but started drinking beer. When I said "I don't really know much about alcohol" after the shooting, everyone told me "Well, you should learn from Furuta-san!". Then, he said "Let's try lemon sour first !". Now whenever I see lemon sour, I see Furuta-san's face (laughs). Muro-san told me "You had a great teacher".

――You said you paid attention to your make-up, to express Mizuki's emotional changes because of Komae. 
My role is an introvert girl who has no interest in love at all. At first, I didn't wear much make-up. However as she gradually start to feel interest in men, she tries to learn more about make-up. I'm glad if the audience can understand these feelings through my make-up. There is no scenes where I'm doing make-up, but I hope you can notice a slight difference.

――Is there any particularity about the make-up you did ?
Mizuki-chan has never done make-up before, so at first I made it thick. I thought it should be better to show how hard she worked on that make-up as she's a complete beginner. On the fifth episode, I did my cheeks too hard and put on red lipsticks.


Paying attention to Mizuki getting cuter

――Does your make-up change when you're in a "love mode" ?
Well... I wonder (laughs) As I'm a regular model for the fashion magazine "Ray", I'm staying informed on what's trending but...
It doesn't need to be about love, because I'm mainly thinking about make-up for my lives, so I have a lot of waterproof ! It doesn't fall even if I cry. I really need make-up that stays.

――Are there any moments your heart raced because of a man working ?
Whatever they work is, I think that people who have dreams and ambitions, who works towards change and make efforts are very cool. My father is a pro golfer, and even if he gets old, he doesn't forget his main goal and his hard-working self. I love guys wearing suits too ! I have a lot of fans wearing these. During events, there are many people wearing the live t-shirts, but sometimes I see a fan with a suit and I think "Oh, here's a pretty boy" (laughs). I remember fans' faces ! I always think things like "Oh, this fan got an haircut !" and so.

―― And if you were an office lady for real ?
I like fine work, so I might be suited for Mizuki's work. It's not related to office work, but as a child my dream was to become a cashier at my local supermarket. I love calculator or old keyboards that makes sound.

――Please give us a last message, including things we shouldn't miss !
There are many scenes that will make people think "Airi-chan's doing such a thing ?!". It's in Komae-san's dream, but... maybe it's cosplay ? It's a scene that could make you grin.
Pay attention to Komae-san's struggles, but also to Mizuki, the introvert girl turning into a beautiful woman.
It made me realize again how much I love to express myself through singing and acting, so I'd like to continue trying various things in the future too.

2019-07-17 11:30:32 ♡First post in a while ^^

Everyone ♡
Long time no see, it's Airi Suzuki!!

I wanted to write a long text for the first time in a while
so I'm typing now


The rainy seasons is kinda long this year

From the second half of June
to the first week of July
Whatever I was doing I couldn't stick to it
And I've tended to become negative

I had such a period but
I wonder if that's just me ?

I'm a preacher of positive thinking
And I feel that the positive feels you have after experiencing negative things
are even more positive.


Being able to have fun and smiling
Makes my hearts feel even more happy

That's what I've been thinking about lately (lol)


That's something I'm grateful for but
lately my schedules won't stop and I'm having many busy days
taking the shinkansen and the plane
going to various places.

As a person who loves endless days like these
I'm experiencing this feeling for the first time in a while


I wonder why humans
are so contradictory like that ♡


Especially during my busy times
I know I'll get busy
But I really want to try something else
Like cleaning up my room or something (lol)


Am I right???(lol)

That's what happens to me!!!!!!'lol)


I think "I want to get a qualification!!!!!!" or something
And seek informations for it, but I don't have any time to do it
and by the time I'm free, I'm already bored with it


I think "I want to redesign my room!!!!"
and when I look at my room
I see the many things I have to throw out first before the redesign and in the end, never do it


I think "Let's go to the gym" !!
So I plan to go on particular moments between works
And even though it made me very happy at first
On that day, I regret it because I want to rest (lol)

But in the end I go and I'm glad I did (lol)

It makes me think I'm stupid
but I'm the type of person who loves to have a packed day (lol)


But there's a reason I became like this


If I'm like "Let's not schedule anything and rest !"
I sleep so much, like forever
and I feel even more tired and regret it,
And that happened often
That's why (lol)


If I'm not strict on schedules
I become a neglecting woman

Hehe


That person is 25 years old.

That's the "Forever 25 years old" theory.
(Airi's making a reference to Juice=Juice's song) 


While thinking that if I was able to stop the time now
I'll be able to do many things
I can't wait to be around my 28.


Girl begins to turn into a woman at 18

And a woman turn a great woman at 28


That's what I believe ♡

Kya



Without rushing
I want to spend the days at my own pace
and I'd be glad if I could
have many laughs every day



From today I'll be able
to meet Airi mania in Osaka and Fukuoka!!

Firstly, today
From 19:00
There's an event at Shinsaibashi

I'm waiting for you


P.S.
I love BEYOOOOONDS' MVs (lol)

Eguchi-chan's amazing
I can't believe she's that same baby
who burst into tears every single time she meets me (lol)

Let me do it with you (lol)
(Airi's talking about this part of the new MV)

lyrics : suzuki airi - escape

Escape

IDENTITY
Kimi he hibike kono merodii
Zutto koko de utatteta yo
Let this melody resonate with you
I've been singing it right there for a long time

Unmei wo shinjiteru toka
Hitsuzen wa nai toka
Sonna rongi wa mou akita no
Mekuri mekuru jinsei
Yomenai shinario ni
Tokidoki oresou ni naru kedo
I've become tired with debates such as
Believing in destiny or
Thinking that things are inevitable
Even though sometimes I feel like falling
Not being able to read the scenarios
Of that constantly moving life

I know Sono saki no rasuto de wa
Kimi to warai atteitai
I know That anyway, in the end
I want to be able to laugh with you

Kimi he todoke kono merodii
Itsumo senaka oshiteiru yo
Sore ga michibikareta aidentiti
Dare to kuraberu no demo naku
Watashi nari no zettaichi de
Orijinaru no ai wo kimi ni tsutaetai
Let this melody resonate with you
I'll always have your back
Because my identity led me to (this path)
It's not about comparing to anyone
In my own absolute uniqueness
I want to convey an original love to you

Teisai ga yuusen da toka
Suuji wo dasu toka
Aru teido wa rikai suru kedo
Jidai shidai de utsurou
Kachikan ni sugatte
Daijina mono naku shitakunai no 
Putting priority on my appearance or
Give out numbers
I understand that to some extent
But let's move according to this era
and to my sense of values
Because I don't want to lose the things that matters

I feel Rikutsu yori mo haato ni
Mimi wo katamuketeitai
I feel that I want to listen
to my heart more than logical reasons

Atari mae wo utagatte mite
Hajimete mieru tashikana koto
Sekai wa kanousei de michiteiru
Moshimo michi ni mayotta nara
Kimi ga warau hou wo erabu
Toushindai no negai janakya imi ga nai
Let's doubt the obvious
And see certain things for the first time
The world is full of possibilities
And if I end up losing my way
I'll chose the one where you're laughing
It's meaningless if it's not a wish greater than life

I ring the bell (kokoro no oto wo)
Watashi rashiku ne mirai he
Day by day Koushin shitai
I ring the bell (the sound of my heart)
Let's move to the future in my own way
Day by day I want to improve

Tarinai mono nante nani mo nai
Kimi no koe ga kikoeru kara
There's nothing I'm lacking of
Because I can hear your voice

Kimi he todoke kono merodii
Itsumo senaka oshiteiru yo
Sore ga michibikareta aidentiti
Dare to kuraberu no demo naku
Watashi nari no zettaichi de
Orijinaru no ai wo kimi ni tsutaetai
Let this melody resonate with you
I'll always have your back
Because my identity led me to (this path)
It's not about comparing to anyone
In my own absolute uniqueness
I want to convey an original love to you

DAYLIGHT

THE BRAND NEW LOOK


Watashi no Migigawa
Atto isshun jikan tomatta yo
Kauntaa no sumi
Negitan shio yaiteru to butsukaru
Anata no ude
Time stopped for a small bit
When our arms bumped
while cooking a beef tongue
on the corner of the counter

Baito owari oniku ni tsuraretekita keredo
Okashii na fureru tabi mune ga
Aburarete
You asked me out after our shift
It's funny how my chest shakes
Whenever we touch a bit
Aa, sou ka
Anata wa hidari kiki
Suwaru tokoro kangae nakucha
Dokidoki shichau naa
Ah, that's right
You're left-handed
We have to think about where to sit
Makes my heart pump

Chotto ooki na anata no te
Yakimono wa otoko no shigoto datte
Itsumo itte kureteru kedo
Anata wa zutto tabeteru
With your bigger hands
You always say "Cooking the meat
Is the guy's job"
But you're always eating

Kitto anata watashi tomadoi
Kizuite nai?
Tabe na yo to mujaki ni sekasu koe
Kogasarete
Didn't you notice
How confused I was?
Your scorched voice
Innocently telling me "Eat more"

Aa, nande
Teeburu janai no
Keisan? Masaka aete? Kore wa
Nerattetari shite ne
Ah, why
It's not a table setting?
Was it calculated?
Please let it be

Chotto wa yuuki dashite mite
Kokuhaku wa otoko no shigoto datte
Itsumo itte kureteru kedo
Anata wa zutto matteru
Please be a bit more brave
I was always told that the confessions
Was the guy's work but
You keep on waiting

Itsumo youki na anata demo
Honki miseta toki wa shinken
Sonna yokogao miserarecha
Yappa nikumenai yo na
Even you who's always so cheerful
You're pretty serious when you show your true face
Of course I can't get to hate you
After having seen that profile

Chotto ooki na anata no te
Yakimono wa otoko no shigoto datte
Kakko tsukanai toko ga suki
Anata wo zutto matteru
"Kondo wa doko ikou ka"
With your bigger hands
You always say "Cooking the meat is the guy's job"
I love that you're always so natural
You keep on waiting
"When should we go next time?"
