All 16 episodes, each 2 minutes long, will be released today on the short drama distribution app BUMP (operated by emole Co., Ltd.).

This drama focuses on ordinary women who only date celebrities and athletes, so-called "professional girlfriends." A college girl who is a beauty pageant finalist and aims to be a professional girlfriend and a hidden professional girlfriend who wears the mask of an innocent college girl engage in a bitter psychological battle and a battle for dominance. What awaits them at the end of their swelling desire for approval? Each episode is two minutes long and is comical and fast-paced, depicting the darkness of modern society, and the realistic and thrilling content will make you want to watch the next two minutes as soon as possible. This is the story of the Cinderellas of the night town, who are more brave than "sugar baby girls" and more cunning than "Minato Ward girls."

The cast is centered around Nozomi Bando, Hikaru Kabashima, and Shuichiro Naito, who are popular among young people, and veteran Yoshihiko Hakamada, who also gained attention for his role as the master in TBS's "Fukokuni mo Hodo ga Aru!", plays a supporting role as someone who influences a professional girlfriend. The director is Fuga Yaegashi, who has worked on MBS's "A Bright Future for Her and Her Boyfriend".


Miyachika Kyoka (Bando Nozomi), a female college student and leading candidate for the beauty pageant grand prix, dreams of marrying a celebrity and living a glamorous life as a celebrity mother. Aspiring to be a "professional girlfriend," Kyoka sets her sights on popular actor Kiyota Kazusa (Naito Shuichiro) at a drinking party attended by celebrities. However, the first person to approach Kazusa is the most down-to-earth female college student, Kimoto Miori (Kabashima Hikaru). Kyoka unwillingly declares war on Miori, who is clearly inferior to her. However, Miori is actually a "secret professional girlfriend" with a long history of battles, calculating everything from her clothes to her attitude... A messy and thrilling battle begins between Kyoka and Miori to win Kazusa's heart!

■ Comments from the performers

Nozomi Bando
Kyouka looks flashy and has a foul mouth, but...
From my perspective, she's too pure! Too honest! I think before you know it, you won't be able to hate her.
It was a lot of fun to act out Kyoka's rapidly changing inner thoughts.
And this work is not just about a fight between two women.
I was surprised. What?! I thought that was coming.
We hope you enjoy Kyoka's journey to becoming a professional girlfriend.

Hikari Kabashima
I'm Hikari Kabashima, who plays Miori Kimoto. When I heard the title of the film, I remember being surprised by the catchy phrase "professional girlfriend." Miori plays an ordinary female college student, but as the story progresses, her true nature as a "professional girlfriend" gradually becomes clear.
This is a work with many highlights that depict things that are unique to women, so I hope you will watch it through to the end.

■Comment from the original author

Manga teacher acca
I'm acca, in charge of the comic adaptation.
We are pleased to announce that "The Conditions of a Professional Girlfriend: Women Who Want to Marry a Celebrity" will be made into a TV drama!
It was one of my dreams that I had hoped would come true someday in my life as a manga artist, so I was really surprised when I heard about the offer. At the same time, I was so happy I felt like jumping!
I am filled with gratitude to Hina-sensei, the original author, for giving me this experience, everyone at the Zenon editorial department, everyone involved in the drama's production, and above all, to all the readers who have supported me.
We hope you enjoy this other "world of professional girlfriends" portrayed through the powerful performances of all the actors.

Original work by Hina Sensei
I think this work will generate a variety of reactions, from those who think, "Is a world like this really real?" to those who think, "Yes, that's exactly what it's like."
In a word, it's a "woman's story in Minato Ward about pursuing her dreams."
I'm looking forward to seeing how Kyoka and Miori, whose characters have become even more powerful through being filmed, will excite and frustrate the viewers.
