The official Twitter account of the upcoming My Home Hero live-action TV drama has revealed that they have roped in the Japanese rock band ‘The Oral Cigarettes’ to perform theme song.
The theme song is called “YELLOW”.
Comment by ‘The Oral Cigarettes’ regarding the theme song was also revealed to commemorate the announcement:
“I feel extremely honored to have been entrusted with the theme song for a work that I have loved for a long time. While on the surface, the work expresses hatred and sorrow, I realized that beneath it all, there are feelings of love for someone, and that becomes the central theme. Yellow has a bright and gentle image like the sun, but on the other hand, it also has the aspect of being a color of danger signals. I thought it was the perfect color to express excessive love, so I wrote the song “YELLOW.” I would be delighted if you could enjoy the song along with the work itself.“
Moreover, the Twitter account also unveiled preview images, providing fans with a glimpse into the series. Check them out below:
