Taiga is a struggling second-generation actor who has developed a complex due to his father, a famous actor in his time. Most of the time, Taiga only gets to appear in variety shows. One day when his friend brings him out skydiving, a big wind drags him away from the dropping point and he gets stuck in a tree. A beautiful woman, Shiori (Takeuchi Yuko), rescues him. Shiori is a cheerful woman who laughs away all of her worries. She's exactly the opposite of Taiga...

My comment :
If you want romantic story ... you've got to watch this dorama.
Some comedy scenes are the bonus. Watch, smile, and laugh ...
Best Drama, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Theme Song ... you got them all.
And the kid actress Kobayashi Seiran is also super cute.
One of my favorite dorama. Highly recommended!
