JUJU's new song "Kotae Awase" has been picked up as the theme song for NTV's upcoming drama 'Koi desu! ~Yankee-kun to Hakujou Gaaru~.'
Based on a webcomic by Uoyama, 'Koi desu!' is a love comedy about Akaza Yukiko, a student with amblyopia who attends a high school for the blind, and Kurokawa Morio, a delinquent boy who everyone is afraid of. Yukiko will be played by Sugisaki Hana and Morio by Sugino Yosuke.
This is actually JUJU's second time providing the theme song for a drama starring Sugisaki. On the song, JUJU commented, "While reading the original comic, Yukiko-san was always played by Sugisaki Hana-chan in my head. Anyway, my heart raced, I laughed and cried, and learned various things... I feel very happy that I can be involved, even if it's just a little bit, in this wonderful place!"
Meanwhile, Sugisaki said, "I am full of joy that I get to work together with my favorite JUJU-san, who is like a cool, big sister to me, again."
'Koi desu! ~Yankee-kun to Hakujou Gaaru~' is scheduled to begin in October.
