~Betrayal and truth~
If you thought things had really hit the fan on last week’s episode, brace yourselves as this fourth episode takes the true meaning of reaping what one has sown to all new heights or rather lows of how much hurt the human mind can inflict upon another’s heart with the darkest and deepest of cuts ….as we see how some inner wounds aren’t ever meant to heal as one’s past actions can come to fruition in ways which not even the perpetrator had foreseen. And yet, not all is as it seems.
And without question this drama brings about the absolute strongest acting by Suenaga Haruka. Her emotions in this episode will without fail bring you to tears ….her character here is will so tug at your heartstrings, and now my eyes are still puffy from re-watching (´⌒｀。) 。

Perhaps a rarity on the internet? I’m not sure but I haven’t been able to find it streaming anywhere so I’ve decided to share this drama directly in these posts. “Hyoten” also known as “Freezing Point” is a 10 episode drama series, this being the 2001 drama …not to be confused with the 2006 two-part “Hyoten” or the original drama series which aired way back in January of 1966 by TV Asahi which starred Aratama Michiyo and Naito Yoko and is noted as having been a success. This 2001 drama series aired here in Hawaii from September 21st, 2008 to its final episode which aired on November 24th, 2008.
So I’ll be posting each episode singly, one episode per week every Friday …all 10 episodes here, and this being “Idols♡ Unzipped” on “way back Fridays” makes it a perfect match for this series of posts as former Jr. idol Suenaga Haruka starred in this drama series waaaaaaaay back many years ago. Due to the large size of this video file and my encoding program therefore not being able to omit parts of the video in a desired manner, I’ve chosen to leave the episode as it originally aired here with CMs included.
~A most brief “synopsis” as I don’t want to spoil any of this drama;s intrigue~
“Hyoten”, a drama which delves into the human psyche revealing the very depths of humanity’s darkness, jealousy’s scars …its dire consequences and to what lengths does emotionally charged revenge speak of? The young daughter of Tsujiguchi Keizo, a respected physician who runs his own hospital, is found murdered. Keizo secretly blames his wife Natsue because he suspects her of having an affair with his colleague Murai, and having been too distracted to keep proper watch over the child. Being a proud man, he does not accuse her directly, but concocts, instead, a twisted revenge against her. Pretending it is to comfort his devastated wife, Keizo arranges for them to adopt a baby girl. What he hasn’t told Natsue, is that the baby is the orphaned daughter of the murderer, a tragic day-laborer who has hanged himself while in police custody. He plans to reveal the child’s origins after Natsue has given her heart to the child when it will cause the greatest possible hurt, however…..
