Utada Hikaru to sing the theme song for TBS Summer 2017 drama "Gomen, Aishiteru"

Utada Hikaru will be singing the theme song for TBS Summer 2017 drama "Gomen, Aishiteru" starring TOKIO's Nagase Tomoya which will begin its run from 9 July in the Sundays 9pm timeslot. The song titled "Forevermore" will be Utada's second release since she joined Epic Record Japan in March this year and it will be released on the streaming portals from 28 July. The last time Utada wrote and sang a drama's theme song was "Hanataba wo kimi ni" for last year's NHK morning drama "Toto Nee-chan".

Nagase plays the lead character Okazaki Ritsu who was abandoned by his mother Reiko (Ootake Shinobu) when he was a child. One day, when Ritsu gets embroiled into an incident that causes him to suffer a life-threatening injury, he decides to meet Reiko for the last time and do something for her out of filial piety because he doesn't know when his life will end. However, when he sees how much she loves her son Satoru (Sakaguchi Kentaro) who is a idol pianist and the happy and rich life she has compared to him who is wallowing in the low rungs of society, Ritsu vows to take revenge on her. At the same time, he falls for a woman Mita Rinka (Yoshioka Riho) who helps him by chance but he is sad to find out that she is in love with his half-brother who is Rinka's childhood friend.
