I was supposed to start watching this earlier but things came up... job interviews, studies, work.
So finally I have started, slowly but steady ^^
Once again it's a drama starring Saito Takumi, whom I'm also watching in Miss Pilot.
What also caught me was the story, I believe this could happen and what can you do if the one around you are jealous and you know it's wrong but cannot help it?!

Also, as I'm a fan of Nishino Kana, she was also a reason I found out about this drama. She's singing the theme song... a great song!! ^^

Title: ガラスの家 (Family/House of glass)
Episodes: 9
Broadcast network: NHK
Broadcast period: Sep 3 to Oct 29 2013
Air time: Tuesday 22:00
Theme song: Sayonara by Nishino Kana

The drama revolves around Tamaki Rei, who was just a middle school student, when both her parents died in an airplane disaster in France 22 years ago. Learning to hide her grief and tears growing up, the story opens with Rei making a visit to Brittany, France, to offer flowers on the anniversary of her parents' death. There she bumps into a man, Shibusawa Kazunari, who had also lost his wife in the same plane crash. Finding Kazunari to be a gentle-spoken man, Rei falls for him and they eventually marries. Kazunari is the current Division Head of the Budget Bureau in the Ministry of Finance.

After the death of his wife, Kazunari had brought up his two sons, Hitoshi and Kenji, on his own. Hitoshi, the eldest, is following his father's footsteps by joining the Ministry of Finance. He thinks highly of the up and rising young politician, Muraki Yosuke, who is well-known for trying to reform the politics of Japan. However, Kazunari, who is touted to be the next Budget Bureau Director General, dislikes Muraki greatly, for reformation will cause Kazunari his job. Seeing Hitoshi trying to be part of Muraki's team, Kazunari feels betrayed and shows his disappointment in him. Feeling that, Hitoshi starts to rebel against his father, by starting a forbidden love affair with Rei.
