In relation to this project, Kuroki gave the comments, “ I wonder if fate is something you can change. Or if its an impossibility to change something like that. In the first place, what is fate?When I was acting in this role, there were many instances of deja vu for me and I wondered if it’s by any chance me seeing myself in a different life.”.

Drama「Time Spiral」begins on 2 September
