Story
Kishigawa Naoko, a plain, dull 31-year-old, is a sales staff who works in a department store’s female lingerie department. She lives with her hopeless father Shuji, exhausted mother Sue and impertinent, unendearing younger sister Junko. One day, Naoko meets a Korean photographer Lee Ji Won when she delivers lingerie to a location shoot. He saves her from trouble and she invites him for a meal to show her gratitude. Upset by the unexpected development, Naoko puts up a front about her family and ends up telling a small lie. On the way back, the two of them encounter her family and the lie she had told is exposed. As a result of Ji Won’s presence, the family secrets slowly come out into the open.
