Sarumaru Yataro, nicknamed “Saru” is an average guy in his 20’s who daydreams about idols but otherwise has no luck with women (due to the fact that he’s extremely perverted). His father abandoned him at a young age and his mother passed away while he was in high school. He took over his father’s shop and became a locksmith. While working at his fathers locksmithing business, Saru uses his genius-like lock picking skills to help people and to take on dangerous cases. There are a lot of perverted jokes in this drama but no nudity. Each episode will keep you laughing and laughing till you burst!

Romeo, A.K.A. Kosuke Matsuyama (Shun Shioya), is a second-year high school student. A nice, normal, nonviolent type, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a rampaging crowd of Korean boys, outraged by insults perpetrated by several of his idiotic class-mates on two Korean girls. He makes a narrow escape, but soon after, he and his best bud Yoshio (Keisuke Koide) are sent by their home-room teacher to invite the Korean students to a friendly soccer game as a way of restoring the peace.

Trembling like black-uniformed leaves, they enter enemy territory, where Kosuke encounters a doll-faced, but serious-looking girl (Erika Sawajiri) playing a Korean folk song, “Imjin River,” on a flute. He and Yoshio are also nearly lynched by her older brother Lee Ang Son (Sosuke Takaoka) and his gang, but he is already smitten — and eager to learn that haunting tune.

The story concentrates on Kosuke’s struggle to not only master a song, but win the love of a girl who seems to live in an alien, hostile world. Meanwhile, Ang Son and his crew are street-fighting with Japanese toughs as if playing a contact sport, with one side scoring hits, then the other. He is macho to a fault, but when he learns that his sweet-heart (Kyoko Yanagihara) is pregnant and determined to keep the baby, he faces a choice that makes him quail: grow up or cop out.
