HY provides theme song to NHK drama “Jun to Ai”

Top indie pop band HY’s “Ichiban Chikaku ni” is the theme song to NHK’s latest asadoraJun to Ai” which started airing on 10/1/12. The drama is filmed in Miyakojima and is the first since 2001’s popular “Churasan” to be set in Okinawa. “Jun to Ai” stars actress/talento Natsuna as Jun Kano, who dreams of turning her grandfather’s Miyakojima hotel into a “magical place” for visitors, and Ai (Itoshi Machida) is played by Johnny’s Entertainment actor/talento Shunsuke Kazama.

The song will be included in HY’s upcoming original album (the band’s 8th), “PARADE,” to be released on 12/5/12.
