NHK’s “Kiyomori” goes to Asia

NHK has announced a deal with True Visions Public Company Limited of Thailand, COJ of South Korea, and Radio Television Brunei (RTB) to license NHK’s 50‐episode historical drama series Kiyomori.

Kiyomori is an epic drama that portrays the life of a legendary samurai warrior who fought to become the ruler of Japan and laid the basis for Japan’s international trade system which brought prosperity to the country in the 12th century.

NEP’s Executive Controller‐General, Fumio Narashima said: “It is delightful to know that the Asian countries continue to give us high credits in our period drama. I am certain that the audiences will be satisfied with the fascinating story of Kiyomori.”
