One of the best human dramas that I've seen in my life. Yes, it's an old drama; yes, some things may be outdated, but...the story is top notch and the leads are too.

It's essentially the story of how one turns from being a money-hungry, materialistic monster into one who has been changed through true love and recognition of what is truly important in life. The transformation is something you'll see through read more the episodes gradually and you'll gnash your teeth when the male lead is thrown aside without a care in the world. But, you'll clap your hands and jump on the couch when the ending comes... but I'll leave that to you to see for yourselves as the story unfolds.

You won't regret watching this...go on, give it a whirl!

This is a realistic drama about how Nanako, as a Yamato Nadeshiko, goes through a life of lies and finds integrity through a near marriage scam.

She ends up happy in the end so don't worry about it.

    I agree with Blademan this story is quite silly I don't understand why the guy was falling over himself chasing after that contemptible woman. Yamato Nadeshiko = the 'ideal woman' this story seems quite detached from reality and perhaps the screenwriter's own subjective view of the world but some might like it i guess. The wife loves it so each to their own.

      I downloaded it from doramax264.com. So sorry for the super late response, I am hardly on this site any longer as I have decided to walk away from these disgustingly pathetic Asian dramas.
