Kyoko is a young woman whose low esteem often manifests itself as suspicious behavior. So when she joins a company and is taken by a senior colleague to her first ever speed date party, she meets a manga editor, Yoshizaki, who doesn’t hold back in his harsh appraisal of her. Though mortified at first, Kyoko resolves that he is someone who can help her improve herself, and she proceeds to follow after him and boldly asks: “Would you go out with me?” No sooner does Kyoko embark on this mission of self-help when she is reunited with a former college senior classmate with whom she had once been infatuated. But he had been an awful man who had used her infatuation to hurt her. Kyoko seeks to overcome the trauma of past love in this compelling love triangle story by Kirin Tendo.
~~ Adapted from the manga series "Kimi ga Kokoro ni Sumitsuita" by Tendo Kirin.

After this preamble, I'll tell you that this drama can be a challenge for many lol
The main protagonist has really a weak personality and that can be frustrating most of the time. But it's always nice seeing as a person can turn into a new leaf thanks to one's own effort and love.
As for the villain, he's really psycho lol, but still we shouldn't see everything as black and white. I'll let you be the judge of that.
Why don't you give it a shot?
That's it. Enjoy ^-^
P.S. sorry for any mistakes (English is not my first language)
Her own family ignored her cause her mother wanted it that way. Her so called senpai trapped her in a Stockholm Syndrome and took advantage of her.
No one cared to help her out and she finally started to be strong enough to break free herself.
It's what all abuse victims suffer from, the feeling that they're not enough and no one gives a $hit about them.
I doubt any k-drama would even gave a story like this cause they're all virgins and the hero is their first love.
From what I've seen in reactions about this drama, Koreans are right. No one wants to see the reality of someone who tried to escape an abusive relationship. Really a pity...
