These days, the term "homeless" has taken on new meaning. There are youths referred to as "net cafe refugees," who have neither a job nor a place to live, but who find themselves hopping around internet cafes. One such refugee is a 20-year-old girl named Chisato, who lost her mother at a young age due to sickness. She spent her youth trying to escape from the huge debt her father left her, read moreand her battle with the repossessors unfolded every night. However, her life changed after meeting one man named Shinzo, changing her views on the meaning of "family." Shinzo comes from a rich family tracing back to the Edo period, and he adopted six good-looking sons with the hope of one becoming his successor, but all of them have strange personalities. Shinzo promises to free Chisato from her debt if she marries him and becomes the mother of his sons. However, a life with these six guys under one roof will not go smoothly.

To be honest, I was very hesitant about watching this drama because I thought it was going to be very over the top and fake, but I was surprised in the end.

For me it was a 'Just one more episode' drama and I ended watching it all in one day. The actors portray their characters perfectly and the ending song made me dance in excitement. The story line was was great read more but re-watching this series would be a bit of an effort. I will definitely scan back some of the episodes and re-watch parts of it but the whole series isn't a must.

This is a very funny and bubbly drama that I recommend to those who liked 'Hana Kimi'.It had a few of the same actors and has the same 'Let's do it!' feel to it. :D

This is one of my favourite dramas. Every cast member is brilliant, the storyline is brilliant and I can watch it over and over again.

The story is of a woman whose father left her all his gambling debts. After running away and living like a homeless person she eventually meets a billionaire who runs a company. He agrees to pay off her debts if he marries her and becomes "mother" to read more his six grown adoptive sons. I think its absolutely hilarious, Even though the plot can be a bit silly its still somehow believable. This drama is great. Its got a really good mix of emotional scenes and comedy. It had me laughing and crying but mostly crying with laughter!

All the acting is great, three of my favourite actors in one drama? yes please. Horikita Maki is really good as always and Yamamoto Yusuke is just his usual crazy self.

both has a similar story with a poor girl completing tasks in order to earn money by living under the same roof as a group of brothers who are potential heirs of a rich man. Even the first task of making all of the brothers/cousins to eat together as a family is similar. Both has the girl having a mysterious background which will be revealed towards the end of the drama. The Korean version is more drama with some comedy while the Japanese version is more comedy than drama.

Both a reverse harems. The girls are surrounded by hot guys. To put it short, in both dramas, the girls are faced with a dilemma and in order to overcome it, the guys help her in their own way if they can.

      No. They started dating because he was stalkerish and kept asking to meet her over the years. In the end she just accepted his advances. I feel sorry that she stopped acting though..she's quite young to end her career at this point, at the height of her fame.

    seems like one of those fake dramas that don't make sense but each episode you will be surprised by what will happen and what the lead heroine does to slowly gain the favor of each family member. I've watched it twice and love it just as much as the first time. But yet again my fav J actress Horikita is in this so I am a bit biased.

    Such a breeze to watch! It was a fun ride. I honestly can't name my favourite brother; it gets messed up when it comes to Sho, Satoru and Masaru!
