56? She was still so young...
This is terrifying.
Wouldn't that be super painful? This is the last person I wanted to see suffer like this.
Thank you for making such an amazing series, rest in peace.
Is it just me or does this seem to be a occupational illness? Scary.
This is so sad... Rest in peace, Morosawa-san.
If heart issues are an occupational illness, remind me to never start scriptwriting... Scary
