Tachibana Miyabi is 39-years-old and hasn't had a boyfriend in 5 years. This doesn't bother her though as she is pretty and confident and enjoys her life as a single woman. She is a doctor and runs her own successful dermatology clinic. But at her school reunion, she finds herself being pitied by others for still being single. Afterwards, she attends a gourmet meeting at a restaurant. There, she talks about her school reunion. Seiji, the owner of the restaurant, makes a biting remark that she isn't the type popular with men. She becomes upset by the remark, but finds herself taking his advice to heart. Eventually, she asks Seiji to mentor her on how to catch men to which Seiji agrees. What follows is a series of mishaps and triumphs and adventures as Miyabi does her best to be the 'type' of woman men want. Edit Translation

I had fun watching the drama!  A typical jdrama that is short yet fast paced. I actually loved the drama and advises the chef gives and that the important point of the drama is what Tachibana realizes herself. I get many wouldn't liked how it turned out but I think it was perfect, except that it's only 10 episode drama. The actors were excellent;  Nakatani Miki is soo pretty, the chef is great in giving advice's and yet... Seto Koji's portrayal and chemi with the lead was great, it was okay unlike other May=December pairings I've seen.
Overall,I  enjoyed watching the drama and didn't have any too much expectations at first since I can't relate to Tachibana's dilemma cause I'm not in that age yet so I just watch the drama with lightheartedness, so I recommend others to do so.

This was a well put together drama. Production values were high, and it was certainly amusing enough. Unfortunately, the story is what really matters, and it ended up falling flat for me. There's so much back and forth going on, for all the effort of watching each episode, ultimately, the end was not rewarding at all. I'm surprised it has as high a score as it does. (7.4 at the time of this writing.)

To sum up, I would have titled the show "It's Not That This Drama Couldn't Have Been Great, It Just Chose Not To." Viewer beware.
