The special will also portray an incident from Yukawa's college days. Popular teen actor Haruma Miura plays the young Yukawa.
Other cast members include Masami Nagasawa as a student lab assistant and Karina as a mysterious woman tied to the murder case. Fuji TV will broadcast the drama at 9:00pm on October 4.
