Premise

After her father's company went bankrupt, Oto Edogawa (Hana Sugisaki) has kept it a secret from her classmates at Eitoku Academy. The school is no longer popular since the F4's graduation. To restore Eitoku's reputation, Haruto Kaguragi (Sho Hirano) formed the Correct 5 with Kaito Taira (Tatsuomi Hamada), Airi Maya (Mio Imada), Sugimaru Eibi (Keisuke Nakata), and Issa Narumiya (Jin Suzuki). The Correct 5 conduct "peasant hunts", forcing the school's poor students to withdraw. Oto avoids the group in order to stay at Eitoku, which is a condition of her arranged engagement to Tenma Hase (Taishi Nakagawa).[6]
