Aired on Thursdays from 10:00 p.m.


Women today can sometimes forget about their gender, as they devote themselves deeper and deeper into their career. Among such women, some suffer overwork, unbalance of hormones, hair loss and the likes. In fact, few women even experience the growth of a thick mustache! According to a survey, there have been results indicating that about 60% of women feeling that they were “turning male” in the past. At 29, these women only had to be concerned with marriage or work, but at 39, the time limit draws nearer, with increased concerns of pregnancy, divorce, aging parents, and change of job.

“Last Cinderella” will depict the reality of these women, who try their best to live each day to the fullest. Playing the main character, a 39 year old female hair stylist Sakura Toyama is Ryoko Shinohara. Sakura meets a handsome younger man, Hiroto Saeki at a party and is drawn to him. A BMX rider since age 20, Hiroto’s income is dependent on his performance, which means that his pay is unstable. As he learns to know Sakura, he is slowly drawn to her as well. Then there is Rintaro Tachibana, Sakura’s boss and good friend, Miki Takeuchi, Sakura’s best friend who suffers from a sexless marriage, and Shima Hasegawa, the other best friend who is addicted to sex, and a regular customer to the hair salon, Chiyoko Oogami who is in love with Rintaro. It’s a modern heart-thumping love comedy that’s sure to make you smile!
