Kousuke Ohno’s “Gokushufudou” (“The Way of the Househusband”) will be getting a live-action drama adaptation on Nippon Television, airing every Sunday at 22:30 JST / 21:30 SGT starting October 2020. The show will star popular Japanese actor Hiroshi Tamaki as the eponymous “househusband” Tatsu, and directed by Toichiro Ruto of “Ossan’s Love” fame.
“Gokushufudou” tells the story of Tatsu — a notorious former yakuza boss who gave up his life of crime to be a dedicated househusband for his career-oriented wife Miku. This often gives rise to comedic situations, given the contrast of his intimidating appearance with his domestic tasks. There is also the added complication of his former yazuka allies and enemies intruding into his new life of managing a household.
