There are various assessments of society that become the benchmark for recognition of a person. Some are recognized for their beautiful and handsome face, some are recognized for their achievements, some are recognized for their good personality.
However, a person certainly has certain desires about what kind of self-worth he wants to be recognized. That’s how it is reflected in Japanese dramas”Busu no Hitomi ni Koishiteru“.
Drama Busu no Hitomi ni Koishiteru based on an essay of the same title by Osamu Suzuki which tells the story of his love with his wife. In other words, this drama is inspired by a true story.
Drama Busu no Hitomi ni Koishiteru tells the story of a voice actor named Osamu Suzuno (played by Naoto). He is loved by many people, especially women, because he has a handsome face and a sweet smile.
His agency continues to make money through Osamu’s handsome face. Instead of acting as a voice actor, the agency makes itself more as an idol star.
However, Osamu himself was not happy with all that. In fact, he wants people to like him because of his voice, he wants to be recognized for his abilities as a voice actor. In fact, even though he has a lover, his lover only likes Osamu’s beautiful eyes.
One day, when Osamu and his girlfriend were walking to a shop wearing hats and glasses so as not to be recognized, Osamu accidentally saw a girl who had fallen in front of his eyes.
The girl was a shop employee named Miyuki Oyama. Seeing Miyuki who had a nosebleed from falling, Osamu handed her a handkerchief and asked how she was.
Unbeknownst to Osamu, Miyuki auditioned at the agency office where Osamu was staying. He dreams of becoming a voice actor and working with Osamu who has been his idol voice actor. Osamu only found out about this after he saw Miyuki’s registration form at the agency office.
Osamu asked the management to consider Miyuki, but they were against it, because Miyuki was not considered a pretty girl. This means they audition only based on physical appearance, not someone’s ability as a voice actor.
Osamu who knew about it, immediately met Miyuki to the shop where the girl worked. Miyuki’s boss said Miyuki was on vacation and was always at a nearby park for voice-over practice. Osamu immediately approached Miyuki in the park and saw that the girl was training in earnest.
Unexpectedly, Miyuki recognized Osamu since the man visited the shop, because Miyuki knew and liked Osamu’s voice very well. Miyuki has been an Osamu fan since middle school. He is often bullied, but he is able to have dreams after he watches an anime where Osamu is the voice of the character.
Since then, he has been fond of Osamu and has watched every anime in which Osamu has played. Miyuki was even able to tell that the smile that Osamu was showing in the photos sold by his agency was not a genuine smile, it seemed that Osamu was forcing himself to do it.
Osamu was stunned by all of Miyuki’s words. He felt that he was finally recognized as a voice actor, not because of his good looks. He was touched when he knew there was someone who understood his heart.
Suddenly, Osamu asked Miyuki to marry him. So, what answer will Miyuki give to her idol? Watch the continuation of the story in the drama Busu no Hitomi ni Koishiteru. Enjoy watching!
