Michiko Asai is a 28-year old housewife. Her husband is 38-year old Yoshio, who works at an advertisement agency. Five years into their marriage, Michiko finds out that Yoshio has been having an affair. Michiko visits the woman and begs her to break up with Yoshio. "Yoshio mentioned that he doesn't see his wife as a woman," she says, bringing Michiko to tears.

Machiko Nogami is a 31-year old woman who works at a luxurious nightclub in Ginza. She is told by her lover whose child she bears, "Get an abortion." She too, is brought to tears.

Three years later... Since her husband's affair, Michiko, now 31, has put every effort forward to become the adorable wife by studying the latest trends and fashion. Machiko, now 34, is an employed owner of a Ginza nightclub.

One day, Kazuko Okinaka moves in across from the Asai family. She is there to take care of the house while her sister and her family are living in Osaka. Alone and lonely, she hopes to become close friends with Michiko.

Shingo Koyanagi, Yoshio's client and president of a middle-sized company, takes Shingo to a luxurious Ginza nightclub after dinner. It's Machiko's club. Machiko has had feelings for Yoshio since he started visiting her establishment. When Shingo rises from his seat to leave, Yoshio does the same. But Machiko holds him back. "There's an annoying customer at another table. Can you stay a little longer for me?"

After leaving the club, Shingo heads downtown to visit 18-year old Mayumi Ito who sings and plays the guitar. Although Shingo has a wife and a nearly adult-age son, all he can think about is his young lover.

After finishing work, Machiko takes a taxi home with Yoshio. Machiko's apartment is just a station away from Yoshio's. In the taxi, Machiko spills coffee on Yoshio's suit. "We should clean this up immediately" she says and invites Yoshio in. Yoshio can't hold back his feelings as Machiko seduces him.

Meanwhile, Michiko has reunited with Kei Kondo, a 26-year old calligrapher who was formerly a student of Michiko's father, a master in calligraphy...

1. not great but above average [Rating: 6/10]
The story is ok and the pace is a bit slow....but the acting is excellent, especially Yonekura Ryoko and Matsushita Yuki. The war between two women are the most exciting part of it.

Yonekura Ryoko plays the honest, devoted wife (a refreshing break from her nearly 3-year stint as a backstabbing, money-grubbing woman of the night) and Matsushita Yuki plays the mistress to the unbelievably adulterous husband. The drama's pace is perfect and the 45 minute episodes slip by so fast you long to know more at the end of each episode. Michiko (Yonekura) is so devoted as a housewife it's almost crushing to see her have no one to talk to, care about her, or even love her throughout the episodes that you almost want to jump into the screen. But it's good acting, don't worry. And the host mama (Matsushita) is convincing as a world-weary woman who just wants the simplicity of having the child of the man she loves. Sugita Kaoru plays the TERRIBLY nosey nextdoor neighbor/friendly acquaintance to Michiko all too well! The only thing to dislike about this show is that all of its characters are flawed (only Sugita's character doesn't commit adultery) and that it ends after 45 minutes~! A great, great show.

Excellent drama!! It's a pity that interesting dramas like these are often overshadowed by dramas sporting popular teen idols. Despite the maturity in the subject, the drama features an engaging and interesting storyline of affairs and deceit--cliffhangers and plot twists further mystifies the truth behind the story. Both lead actresses, Yonekura and Matsushita, provide spectacular and believable acting--the rest of the cast isn't so bad either.

They turned the casting on it's head: Ryoko the wife, Yuki Matsushita the "other woman". I love Kaoru Sugita as the nosy neighbor!

7.5. Good drama. Finally seeing Yonekura Ryoko as a 'good women'. Kinda an 'adult drama' as it deals with infidelity.
