25 year old Misawa Tooru (Nakamura Yuuichi) falls in love with his brother’s male lover’s secretary, Shinkai Seiji (Kamiya Hiroshi) at first sight. Although he was straight, he is attracted by the beautiful Shinkai-san who has a reputation of being a sadist (?) and actively pursues him. However, Shinkai-san is in fact the son of the boss of a Yakuza clan. Ostracised as a child for being a Yakuza’s son, he has issues with trusting and forming deep relationships with people. Despite Tooru’s persistent love confessions, Shinkai-san believes Tooru is just like everyone else. Shinkai-san sleeps with him once and then dumps him, convinced that he will give up soon enough. Will Tooru turn out to be different?
Based on a novel by Hatomura Ian 鳩村衣杏
This is the sequel to Ai to Jingi ni Ikiru no sa, but it focuses on Yui’s (Taniyama Kishou) younger brother, Tooru. It would be good to listen to the previous one if you want to know about the background story of their relationships. But it doesn’t really affect the flow of the story of this drama. I like Kamiya Hiroshi’s lower-pitched voice in this drama! <3 Nakamura Yuuichi’s performance is pretty enjoyable too. The story is simple and typical BL. A dash of angst but mostly sweet. Yummy H~
