Promise Cinderella



Katsuragi Hayame (Nikaido Fumi) is a housewife living an uneventful and unspectacular life with her husband. But when the latter comes home one day and abruptly drops a bombshell – telling her he has met another woman and wants a divorce – he whole, mundane world falls to pieces. Without thinking, she walks out of the house intending never to come back. But fate has more misery in store for her: A thief robs her of all the money she has on her – leaving her homeless and penniless. Destiny isn’t done with her yet, though. As Katsuragi Hayame wallows in self-pity, she encounters a bratty male high school student that she once humiliated named Issei (Maeda Gordon). He mischievously tells her that if she plays a game with her, he will give her a place to stay. She plays along, but their personalities clash. As they get to know each other a little better, Issei finds himself drawn to the older woman – but soon finds that he is not the only one vying for her heart! “Promise Cinderella” is a 2021 Japanese drama series that was directed by Shosuke Murakami, Junichi Tsuzuki, and Shinichi Kitabo.
