──Please tell us how you felt when you decided to appear in this work, which is a sequel to the popular work “Going to New York, Prince of the Stars” after more than 30 years, or when you read the script for the first time.
Eddie and I are on good terms and meet and dodge emails on a daily basis. And I thought we wouldn’t do the sequel to each other. However, on SNS, the story of the sequel was exciting, and I saw a tweet saying that Tiffany Haddish was the queen. Also, the original work is really popular, and parties with that theme are often held. I’ve been contacted by Beyonce’s office asking if she would come to her “Go to New York, Prince of the Stars” party. Because everyone cosplays as a character (laughs).
Some restaurants in Los Angeles have sexy chocolate milkshakes on their menu. Given the popularity of his work, Eddie seems to have reconsidered not doing a sequel. Then one day it took four years to put together the ideas, gather the scriptwriters, and then realize them. During that time, there was a hoax about the sequel, but four years later, Eddie finally handed me the script. And I read the script in the garden of his house. It was so fun that I couldn’t stop reading it, and I was excited to flip through the pages. So I abandoned the idea that I wouldn’t do a sequel either.
