This is another drama where the summery/description does not do it justice. I have passed over this show several times for that fact alone, until now. Once I started watching, I didn't stop until it was over. At only eight episodes it is relatively short by most drama standards, but I think it makes up for that by having a story that fits perfectly in that time frame. The cast was really amazing and I found their acting to be quite believable with only a few annoyances from some of the supporting cast members. The flow of the story was really good as well, giving you the highs and lows that are a must for a good drama. This is not a classical Cinderella story, so if you think it's about an older man and a younger girl falling in love, then think again. She is Cinderella in a figurative sense, not actual, and she meets someone that can change her life. So if you enjoy a story where characters seem to grow and change as the story comes along then I recommend this drama. You will not be bored or disappointed.

Kawaguchi Haruna is also fantastic in this drama, but to be honest, I really began watching this show for Koizumi Kotaru. And if you're a fan of Koizumi Kotaru then this drama is for you! Both actors/actresses are amazingly talented in skill, emotion, realism, personality, and so much more. But to be honest, I'm more of a Koizumi fan, which is why I wanted to watch this drama and he definitely does not disappoint in this show! He sticks out as someone (for lack of a better word) with more refined skills in this series, which is, as he does in his other works I've seen, what made me like his acting and shows in the first place!

The story itself is a little slow moving at the beginning but it isn't bad or uninteresting at all in the least! I really think this show is a hidden, underrated gem!
