A BACHELORETTE WITH BANGS
Four gorgeous yet determined guys are still struggling to turn their reluctant, homely housemate Sunako into a proper lady. So far, the dreamy quartet have miraculously managed to cover up Sunako’s total lack of progress from their landlady, Sunako’s aunt, who is eager to see results. She has even set Sunako up on a blind date! If the aunt finds out that Sunako is still clinging to the darkness, their rent is sure to skyrocket. It looks like the only way out is to convince the meddling relative that Sunako already has a boyfriend. But which of the four guys could possibly pull off such a demanding role?
