Taiga will be playing an university student Yamada Kousuke who bumps into Takami Kenbutsu (Nukumizu Yoichi), the president cum manager of lovers for rental company "Rental Lovers" just before Christmas. As there is a festive season promotion, Kousuke ends up hiring Remi and is so besotted with her after she becomes the perfect girlfriend of his dreams during the rental period. However, when Kousuke raises the idea of hiring Remi permanently, she flatly rejects him while he is left pining for her.
Kousuke's childhood friend Michibata Sumire who is holding a torch for him, will be played by Kishii Yukino. Kentaro will be playing Tachibana Hayato who is also a childhood friend of Kousuke and is a rich man's son who goes to the same school as the latter. Amato Yuu, the No.2 in Rental Lovers who is Remi's rival, will be played by Hara Mikie while Hayato's girlfriend Hosoi Miki will be played by Nobue Yu. Co-stars also include Kaneda Ayana and Kiyohara Sho.
Taiga who happens to be Gouriki's ex-classmate back in senior high school, commented that it feels unbelievable that he will be doing a romance drama with her and is looking forward to the filming. As for his character's love likely going to be unrequited, he will try to show the positive side of taking the first step and not giving up easily as described in the story. As for Nukumizu who is also working with Gouriki for the first time, he is very excited by this especially since he will be surrounded by many younger co-stars this time and hopes that they can work together to create an enjoyable drama.
