The heartwarming drama describes the true story of how a female university student Sawano Natsumi (Kawaguchi) from Shonan comes across a pancake restaurant named Eggs n' Things in Hawaii and decides to bring this delicacy to Japan which subsequently leads to the pancake boom in Japan. Despite the difficulties and setbacks she encounters, Natsumi manages to realise her dream with the support of her family and friends. Kawaguchi commented that she is eagerly looking forward to the filming while being surrounded by the beautiful scenery in Hawaii and hopes to convey Natsumi's energy and dynamism through this drama.
Yokohama will play Mitsuyama Ryosuke, a surfer who has feelings for Natsumi but finds it hard to be frank towards her. He sees her dream as his own and supports her through the journey of achieving her goal. As this is the first time he has attempted surfing or played a surfer, Yokohama said that he had a hard time shooting with his surfboard but it had been a great experience to be filming at Chigasaki with other surfers. This helped him to assimilate into the role and play Ryosuke in the most natural way as possible.
