Story
Kiriyama Tsubaki works for the public relations department of matchmaking app service Love Next. He is in love with Sorano Anne in the same team, and the two of them start dating after he agrees to her condition to keep their relationship a secret in office. Tsubaki’s family runs a traditional Japanese-style confection shop at Nihonbashi. However, his father is 100 million yen in debt and they are now stuck with the shop. One night while Tsubaki is walking on the street alone, Hanazono Sakura, the CEO of Love Next, shows up and he gets kissed all of a sudden. Sakura declares that she is great at business and at kissing, and orders him to come to her office the next day. When Tsubaki visits the CEO office, Sakura makes a shocking proposal to him, “Marry me for 1 million yen!” Tsubaki gets married to her, but he is unable to break off his relationship with Anne and they continue to have secret dates in the apartment that he has vacated. He has only confided in his colleague, Kang Yungu, from the Public Relations Department that he and Anne are dating. Although Tsubaki manages to evade Sakura’s persistent monitoring, Sakura gets wind of this and begins to take drastic action.
