Casio Ad

Saw this old Casio ad from the 80’s while reading the following post at GMT+9.

The lady in the ad (if I’m not mistaken) is Momoe Yamaguchi (山口百恵). She was one of the very first Japanese stars I saw on TV during the 80’s. I believe she was also among the first few Japanese stars who gained popularity in other parts of Asia. Perhaps that was why Casio featured her in the ad.

I remember in one of the dramas titled 疑惑, she played a young girl who had leukemia. Forgot the storyline but I remember she married the lead actor in that drama in real life.

Anyone remember her?

BTW, the picture also reminds me of shoulder pads, a fashion statement of the 80’s.
