Hotaru works for a famous interior design company. It's a glamorous job but Hotaru's private life is totally the opposite of glamorous. She lives alone, and when she isn't working she's mostly lazing about her rented house in training wear. She's not interested in men. In fact, she isn't interested in anything. "I'd rather lay around than fool around," is her motto.

Her landlord is a bar owner, and one day his son, who has just separated from his wife, comes to inspect the rental property, not knowing that someone is living there. He is shocked at the mess, but not as shocked as Hotaru. He turns out to be her boss, Takano. -- Japan Times Online

I fell in love with this drama. And yet again, another one that I threw away because I wasn't patient.

This was a well thought out show. Every single person is always looking for that perfect love. Sometimes we find it. Sometimes we don't. This was all about how one person fights for what she wants but comes to realize that the person right beside her was the love she wanted and didn't know it.

Yeah, this had my main man Naohito-kun in it. How did I let him go the first round? Was I stupid? I think what originally turned me off was the fact that he was married, going through a separation, and I felt that I wasn't going to watch a married man get the hots for this young girl. Oh, but it wasn't about that. Definitely a good show with some really good, funny moments.

I didn't really like the ending much though. I felt they could have given us viewers a little more of the "couple" being more loving. But hey!....can't always get what I want. I know. At least she picked the guy I wanted her with most!!

Since I have a buttload of "my man's" pics already up....thought I'd give y'all some more new eye candy! Kato Kazuki......GORGEOUS!!!
