Yoshitaka was asked what she would do if ever she was offered to host the Kouhaku to which she replied: "If I'm the host, I think things would turn into a mess. And when that time comes, I would like to host it together with Nakama-san".
Nakama, looking a bit perplexed, smiled and answered back, "If I do get invited, I will do my best to help and support her, though...".
Yoshitaka also said that she's having trouble speaking in English in some of the scenes. "It's a good learning experience for me, but I want it to end as soon as possible... I become discouraged with the English-speaking parts".
The presscon was also atended by Miyoko Asada (housemother of her dorm in Tokyo), Rie Tomosaka (English Teacher) and Rin Takanashi (classmate).
They're already talking about hosting the Kouhaku? w
I hope that they choose a better host than Ayase next time

- Don't say these things that easily since Nakama will really take it seriously.
- もう杏に内定していますごちそうさまの数字を超えれば別だろうけど厳しいIt's already been informally decided that Anne will be hosting it next year.
It'd be a different story though if this drama can surpass Gochisousan's ratings, but that would be too difficult.
- 白 江頭2：50赤 鳥居みゆきWhite: Egashira 2:50
Red: Miyuki Torii
I won't watch the morning drama once Anne-chan's is finished
- あまちゃん、ごちそうさんのあとにやる朝ドラなんて罰ゲームでしかないこれでヒットさせたら凄いけどまあ無理だわなThe morning drama that comes after Amachan and Gochisousan will feel like a punishment.
It'd be amazing if they get a hit with this, but I don't think it'll be possible.
- このドラマが始まる前に､もう次の朝ドラの発表があるんだよなNHKってホント準備万端な体制だなAnd they've already announced the next morning drama even before this next one starts.
NHK really is well prepared.

- 人気実績ともに桁違いなのにもう完全に仲間が格下扱いなのが悲しいIf you compare their popularity and track record, there's no contest. But it's so sad how Nakama is entirely being considered as someone of a lower standing.
- 仲間由紀恵に食われそう吉高っていつも損してる。ガリレオといい周りが嫌がらせしてるんだな記者は顎瀬の悪口言わせようとしてるしI get the feeling that she'll be overshadowed by Yukie Nakama in the drama. Yoshitaka's always unlucky with her roles. That's also true with Galileo. It looks like the staff must be picking on her. Even the media reporter is trying to fish her for a comment that criticizes Agose*.
* Ago = chin. Nickname for Ayase
- 綾瀬は噛み倒そうが変な間がどんだけあろうが笑って許せる雰囲気あったがこいつは袋叩きで炎上するだけだろｗEven if Ayase eats her words or leaves awkward pauses, she can just smile it off and everything is forgiven.
But this girl will be like an animal in a sack waiting to be battered. w

- 寝言は寝て言え杏に確定やろ質問受けたら、ここは「選んで頂けたら、頑張ります」だろ低脳ッぷり全開のコメントやなGo sleep first before sleeptalking.
Anne will be hosting it.
The correct answer she should've said here is, "I'll do my best if I were selected to host".
She just completely exposed how dumb she is with that comment.
But I do think that Yoshitaka is hot, despite her youthful voice and face.
- おれ２人とも好きだわｗ これ見る～I like them both w
Gonna watch this.
- 総合司会吉高紅組仲間由紀恵白組阿部寛Overall host: Yoshitaka
Red team: Yukie Nakama
White team: Hiroshi Abe
Let the real life hosts who can properly say adlibs do this instead
- 可愛いじゃん２人とも着物が似合うなThey look cute.
Both of them look good in kimonos.
- でも客観的に見れば吉高がやる可能性かなりあるよな朝ドラの視聴率次第ではさIf you look at it objectively, there's really a high probability that Yoshitaka will be hosting it this year. But it will also depend on the morning drama's ratings.
- 次は檀蜜でいいわ頭いいし、なんといっても声がいい落ち着いてて聞きやすいI'd like to see Mitsu Dan next.
She's smart, and her voice is really good.
She sounds so composed, and is really easy on the ears.
Yoshitaka's the person who always acts like she's lacking in something, right?
Then just have Yukie Nakama host it alone
- 日テレ「ミタ」の脚本家クドカンTBS「JIN」の脚本家テレ朝「Doctor－X」の脚本家そら朝ドラは高視聴率連発するワケだわNTV Mita's scriptwriter
TBS JIN's scriptwriter
TV Asahi Doctor X's scriptwriter
No wonder all these morning dramas have been getting the ratings.
- ゆりちゃん可愛い。案外似合ってる。仲間さんもこういう古典柄似合うんだね。コンサバスタイルが好きそうだけど、普段着も色遊びして欲しいわ。料亭女将役とか似合いそう。Yuri-chan looks cute. It surprisingly looks good on her.
Even Nakama-san looks good in these classic and historical flicks.
She seems like a woman who prefers wearing conservative clothes, but I want her to try being more adventurous with her fashion. I think she'd also look good as a manager in a restaurant.
- 仲間さんの着物姿いいねぇこの場合、主役より華があるのが難点かなNakama-san really looks nice in a kimono.
The problem here is that she has the bigger air of glamour than the main actress.
Nakama's the only one I need here
- 仲間は売れるのが遅かったからなあ。看板作品が２つもあって、どちらも長く親しまれた作品なのに、なぜか劣化がはやいイメージが。I think Nakama became too popular too late.
She's got herself 2 shows which she's known for, and both series were well-loved for a long time, but for some reason, she seems to have declined so fast.
- 紅白司会は仲間と中居でいいや嵐や綾瀬の司会見てるとこの2人が1番マシだと気付いたNakama and Nakai should be the hosts of the Kouhaku.
After seeing Arashi and Nakai, it made me realize that a 2-host format is still the best.
- ナカナカコンビだっけか、そう言えば会見が面白かったThe Naka-Naka combi, was it? The presscon for that one was really good.
It should be Anne and Junichi Okada
- 綾瀬司会がハラハラして面白かったから吉高でもいいぞ白組はフォローできる腕のある人じゃなきゃならないがAyase was nerve-wreckingly exciting as the host so I'm fine with Yoshitaka.
The White team host should be someone who has the ability to support her, though.
- 司会は仲間だけでいいよ吉高は向いてないから無理しないほうがいいと思うJust make Nakama host it alone.
Yoshitaka isn't cut out for it so she shouldn't push herself.
It's really interesting to see Nakama-san who says, "So Ueda, you've got a huge package?", in an NHK morning drama.
