The upcoming drama features Sara Minami (Dear Etranger, This Child is Evil) as Sawako and Ouji Suzuka (Listen to the Universe) as Shota Kazehaya in the lead roles. Takehiko Shinjo (Asunaro Hakusho, Iguana Girl) and Takeo Kikuchi (Dear Deer, Hello, Goodbye, Bokyo) will be teaming up as directors of the series.
