Haruki Kenji is a 36 year-old manager of the Winter Sports section of a large sporting goods company. He goes on a ski trip to New Zealand with his friend Shintani Goro (who is also his boss) and Shintani's new secretary, 24 year-old Aoi Yuki. Upon returning to Japan he finds that he has a new neighbor in the apartment next to his. It is Aoi.
While watching the movers he sees a photograph drop from new girl's luggage. Looking at the photo he sees it is a picture of a group from a female bicycle gang and upon looking closer he sees it is a picture of Aoi. Haruki finds her putting on a facade and fooling everyone at work with her nice girl persona. But at home she is anything but nice, dating lots of men and using them to get what she wants.
This continues until one day Aoi comes home drunk and without her keys. Kenji lets her into her room via the door connecting their apartments. Aoi accidentally drops a video tape into Haruki's apartment. When he discovers the tape he watches it. On it Aoi has recorded a message to herself. Seeing this serious message, Haruki begins to view Aoi in a completely different light.
Cast & Credits
I really liked the choice of actors in this drama, you couldn't pick better ones for the roles they played. Once again, Yada Akiko did a splendid job in this drama showing her true colours as she always does. I was greatly impressed with this drama and would highly recommend anyone and everyone to watch it. In my most humble opinion, there were many lessons to learn throughout this wonderful drama.
