Synopsis: Handsome Hasebe Sosuke (Nakajima Kento) looks nothing like the ugly and fat boy who was bullied when he was a child. He is now the creative director and deputy editor of the Japanese-language edition of The Most, a fashion magazine which is sold in 30 countries. Although he is capable, he often arouses resentment for being harsh to editorial department staff. Sosuke transfers from the magazine’s New York headquarters and makes a date with his first love Sato Ai (Koshiba Fuka) after returning to Japan for the first time in 16 years. Ai was a pretty A-student who became his first friend but her looks changed as she grew up and she lost confidence. She has been unemployed after the company she worked for went bankrupt and gets hired by a publishing company’s general affairs department. Sosuke and Ai are unexpectedly reunited at The Most, when she ends up being assigned to work at its editorial department for three months. However, he does not realize that Ai is his first love and she keeps her identity from him.
