Now in her 30's, Rei visits the accident site where her parents died. There, she meets Kazunari Shibusawa (Takahiro Fujimoto) who lost his wife in the same accident. Kazunari is the budget director for the Ministry of Finance. Rei falls in love with Kazunari and marries him. Kazunari has two sons who are now adults. His first son Hitoshi (Takumi Saito) follows in his father's path. Hitoshi works in the Ministry of Finance. His second son Kenji (Kento Nagayama) graduated from law school and is now preparing for the bar exam. Because of Rei, who tries to get close to Hitoshi and Kenji, and her beautiful appearance, the Shibusawa family begins have friction. Hitoshi is attracted to Rei.

    Since I have finished it, I figure I may as well write a review.

    As you can see from the synopsis, the basis of this story revolves around a forbidden love aspect, in this case, a woman falling in love with her husband's son. Don't worry, there's no pedophilia here, all are adults. Interspersed throughout the drama is a secondary storyline about politics that I didn't really pay attention to, and I doubt anyone else watching this will, as it had no real bearing on the story in general. In fact, with the inclusion of the political story line I felt that the focus of the drama was a bit confused. Was I watching a political drama or a romance dram?

    That serves to be one

    I am loving this drama. Saito Takumi is great. The father really gives me the creeps.
  • sweetcaramel Oct 11, 2013
    This drama is kinda slow and hate some events that focus about politics and works but then at least at ep. 5 they finally revealed their true feelings.. so it's getting better... and I'm gonna be watching this until the end.. @_@

    Just started this and the first episode is a little slow. I hope it will pick up once they've introduced all the characters and set up the story.

    I tried watching it, it was just a bit awkward for me. It doesnt really capture my attention. I wanted to watch it for Saito Takumi and Kento as well
  • Panda-san Sep 21, 2013
    Anyone know where I can watch episode 2? I don't need subs so raw is fine. I looked on d-addicts, asiatorrents and googled...I found episode one on dailymotion but can't find the second one.
    • sam30317 Sep 22, 2013
      asiatorrents has it. You have to search for the title like usual, let it load then go all the way down the page to the drop-down menu that says "Search in", click on "file & description". You should b able to see that it has episode 2 and 3.

      If u dont already, it also helps to download "utorrent". My bitcomet wouldnt work with it, but utorrent works amazingly well!
    • Panda-san Sep 22, 2013
      Okay I found it. Thanks!
    • sam30317 Sep 23, 2013
      no prob!
    • Mareina Oct 2, 2013
      If you don't need subs, try here: http://dramamovielink.blog102.fc2.com/
      They usually have currently airing J-drama eps few hours after airing. Garasu no Ie is up to ep 5 there.
  • Mareina Sep 4, 2013
    I watched ep 1 and it seems to be a really good drama if you're into forbidden love =)It has great acting, too!
    • sam30317 Sep 4, 2013

      Thanks for all the help! I know how to use torrents, but for some reason, everytime i try to get something from asiat. they never even start to download!! helloheydays worked the best for me. But now I have to find the actual video for episode 2. I already downloaded & watched episode 1 (downloading was a real pain since she only gave a link & not a file).

      If u find other ways of watching the show, keep us updated please!
    • KanashimiAngel Sep 20, 2013
      hmm... I think there must be sth wrong with your torrent client or with the way is configured... u have to use utorrent... or maybe it's because your ratio on asiat is below 0.50...
      anyway, you can find it here as well... I think it's direct download... just read the instructions they give there

    • sam30317 Sep 20, 2013
      I downloaded the utorrent and it started downloading right away!! Not sure what the difference is btw bittorrent and utorrent though. And i have no idea what that ratio is u mentioned about asiat., but im guessing now it doesnt matter, lol

      Now i jus have to make sure the vid plays fine after download and see if subs r put for ep. 3 on the new site u gave me. Seriously, thanks soooo much!!!
    • KanashimiAngel Sep 20, 2013
      bittoreent doesn't work with asiat... and the ratio... well, u should probably read the rules about it... u have to maintained at least over 0.5 to be able to download... so that means after you download sth, u have to seed it as long as u can ^__^
