The actress Yasuko Matsuyuki attended a finished interview in Tokyo on her starring the TV drama, titled "A String Of The Mind". It was produced by NHK (Nippon Hoso Kyokai: National Broadcasting Station) and will be aired on November 27, 21:00. She for the first time acted a Deaf mother in the drama.

Yasuko had gone in the dog race of sign language for about one month, saying "acting in the drama was worth challenge. I am happy now after I performed hard and accomplished it because my casting was demanding".

The drama depicts the bond of the CODA son who aims at becoming a pianist played by Ryunosuke Kamiki and Deaf mother played by Yasuko.
