Juri Ueno on 2011 NHK’s Taiga Drama

January 26, 2010 — 4 Comments

Titled “Gou ~Hime-tachi no Sengoku~” (姫たちの戦国) meaning “princesses’ belligerent country” with an original script by Atsuhime screenwriter Kumiko Tabuchi.

Gou will be the 50th Taiga drama airing on NHK in 2011 [apparently linked to this rumor], centering on the women of the Sengoku period (the years of the civil wars, 1467–1573). Daughters of Azai Nagamasa and Oichi (sister of Oda Nobunaga) – the first, Yodo Dono who became the second wife of lord Toyomi Hideyoshi. The second, Ohatsu who married lord Kyougoku Takatsugu, and the youngest Gou (aka. Oeyo, played by Ueno), who ended up marrying shogun Hidetada Tokugawa.
