YesAsia Editorial Description

Starring popular actor/singer Fukuyama Masaharu, the 2007 Fuji TV detective drama Galileo inspired a big screen spin-off and a TV special in 2008, both of which arrived on October 4. The double dose proved to be a success as the movie Suspect X hit #1 at the box office and the TV special Galileo - Episode Zero drew viewership ratings of over 20%. Based on a Higashino Keigo novel, Galileo stars eternal heartthrob Fukuyama Masaharu as genius physicist and professor Yukawa Manabu. Nicknamed Galileo by his colleagues, the charmingly nerdy Yukawa uses his supreme intellect and reasoning to help headstrong rookie detective Kaoru, played by top actress Shibasaki Kou (Orange Days), solve mysterious cases.

Set three years prior to the series, Galileo - Episode Zero returns to a murder case previously mentioned in the drama when detective Kusanagi (Kitamura Kazuki) first seeks the assistance of his former college buddy Yukawa. The SP offers flashbacks to a college-age Yukawa, portrayed by popular young actor Miura Haruma (Gokusen 3). The drama special also features appearances from Nagasawa Masami (Last Friends) and Karina (Bambino).
