I found this drama by chance and I gave it a try because Arata Iura was in the cast. It's a drama that pictures the lives of four peole that aren't happy with the way they live and want to change. Not everything can be accomplished though, what to do when you fall in love with a married person who also has kids? I found really sweet the romance between the two main characters. I expected an affair but they never crossed the line. A nice end for them. The other couple that was formed was an affair so since the beginning I didn't expect much from them. But why didn't she tell him about their c****? (* To avoid spoilers) I watched this drama pretty fast because I got into the story and I was always anticipating what would happen next.
