Sixteen-year-old Kirara Nakazono would love nothing more than to be a star actress, but she can't seem to get any gigs that matter. Luckily, her manager Hanamaki knows just the trick: he abandons Kirara in an apartment filled with lecherous producers so she can sleep her way into a role! As she's a virgin, Kirara irritatingly protests, and eventually is allowed to leave by a beautiful and powerful man named Gin with one caveat: he insists that she's his property, and in time he'll be the one to take her virginity. With Gin's blessing Kirara quickly finds herself a rising star, though she has more to handle than just her new career! Gin, her manager and other men can't keep their hands off Kirara; will she succeed in both work and love?

Both Kaikan Phrase and Love Celeb feature high drama, a mix of romance/smut, and comedy. Both feature strong even forceful bishie leads and a cute/sweet/naive younger female lead.

Love Celeb is actually a spin off of Kaikan Phrase so there are some reoccuring characters in both series. Both series also give the reader a slight peak at the world of showbiz although in both the main story focus is romance.
