Here are some drama notes for Kuniko Mukoda's Hanayome SP:

Kuniko Mukoda (1929-1981). A well-respected writer of novels, short stories, essays and screenplays. Her works were considered more realistic than the usual drama fare at that time, mainly focusing on day to day living and family life tinged with inner turmoils. She died in a plane crash in 1981 but her works still live on - some of which are still being adapted into stage plays and drama specials - proof of the enduring quality of her stories and the relatable appeal of her characters.
