星野源 Hoshino Gen - 恋 (Love)
Moriyama Mikuri has a difficult time getting properly employed and establishing a career. She has a graduate degree but she couldn't find a good company who's willing to hire her full-time. She worked on a temporary contract arrangement but when it came to choose among the contractual employees, Mikuri wasn't chosen even though she was more qualified.

Because she is unemployed, Mikuri accepted a part-time job as a housekeeper. Tsuzaki Hiramasa needs someone to come clean his apartment once a week. Hiramasa has a very fastidious personality, and he couldn't find anyone who can do the work in his satisfaction.

Mikuri and Hiramasa decide to get married to keep up appearances in society, but they actually have an employer-and-employee relationship who happen to live together.

Although housewives don't get paid and are supposed to be doing their job out of love, being a housewife still something that takes a lot of resolve since it's a role that they have take on 24/7.
