This is a sweet love story between 29-yr-old Yuki and 20 yr-old Doku. The story begins when Yuki, an ordinary OL, traveled to Vietnam and was rescued by a quiet young man, Doku. After she returned to Japan, she quit her job and decided to become an Japanese teacher. On the first day of her class, she was surprised to find out that Doku was also in her class!! Since it was the first day (and first time) of her teaching, she was too nervous and was laughed at by the students. As she started to cry in front of the class, Doku stood up and walked toward her, smiling and telling her, "Please show us your courage!!"...

1. Excellent Dorama [Rating: 10/10]
This is a great dorama! A age-gap nationality-barrier tale of love and attraction between a vietnamese student learning japanese in Japan and his Japnaese language teacher. The romance in this dorama is so so real and great, and you get to see japan from foreigners eyes. Not only does this dorama focus on the impossibilities of the difficulties faced when there is a huge age gap between men and women (esp. as in Japan a woman dating/marrying a younger man is a no no) but also a japanese woman dating/marrying a main land asian. You have to watch this! You get to see Shingo as different from his real charecter as posible.

The theme song Pride was the biggest singlle of that year!
