Ogawa Akira is a student who has failed medical school entrance exams twice and is retaking it for a third time. His father is a doctor and his parents yearn for him to enter medical school. One day, he happens to encounter the beautiful hostess Kyoko. It is love at first sight for him. Because of this, he goes into the Ikebukuro nightclub where Kyoko is the top hostess, and starts working as a black-suited staff member. Inexperienced in the ways of the world and naive, Akira starts to learn about the harshness of living in the nightlife and begins to change. ~~ Adapted from the manga series "Kurofuku Monogatari" (黒服物語) written by Kurashina Ryo (倉科遼) and illustrated by Narita Manabu (成田マナブ).

I got intrigued by the drama when I saw this from the Sexy Zone community.

I’m not a fan of Nakajima Kento but I sure have watched some of his works mostly out of curiosity and because I’m following certain actors that appears alongside him – yeah, guilty, I know.

As the title says: “Kurofuku Monogatari”, literally Story of a Black Uniform.
It’s a story how a man who failed twice at an entrance exam on a medical school (should probably say thrice though) and during his confusion, he ended up meeting a hostess and how he ended up working on a cabaret club instead of taking the exam.

I totally am not aware of the plot until I’ve watched it.
I also learned a few terms that they are using on this kind of work.

I have also watched an interview about a host a few months ago prior to watching this drama so, I somehow got the gist of what the job is like (and I knew a few who are in this kind of work).

Here I thought that because of this drama, Nakajima Kento learned how to play with his words that he uses for his fan service. Hahahaha. But I guess it’s just me who thought about it. XD

Final thoughts:
IT IS different from Ouran High School Host Club THAT’S IT.
