Hoshino Gen to sing the theme song for NTV Summer 2017 drama "Kahogo no Kahoko"

Hoshino Gen will be singing the theme song for NTV Summer 2017 drama "Kahogo no Kahoko" starring Takahata Mitsuki which will begin its run from 12 July in the Wednesdays 10pm timeslot. The drama which is written by Yukawa Kazuhiko, features Takahata as the 21-year-old university student Nemoto Kahoko who is overly protected by the people around her that she has never spent the night outside her house, driven a car, done any housework nor even left alone at home before. She doesn't even have a wallet since everything will be paid for by her father. Every day, she is woken up by her mother Izumi (Kuroki Hitomi) and wears the clothes the latter chooses. Even though her father Masataka (Tokito Saburo) is concerned about Kahoko's future, he can't bring himself to discipline his daughter and allows his wife to intervene too much into Kahoko's life. When Kahoko meets a young man who comes from an entirely different background from hers, she gradually undergoes changes in her personality and life.

The theme song titled "Family Song" which was specially written for this drama, is Hoshino's 10th single and will be released on 16 August. With regard to this song, Hoshino said that when he read the drama's script, he thought of using soul music to illustrate the theme of what it means to be family. In order to make fine adjustments to the song, he even had his band members stay up all night with him in the recording studio. As he had recently worked with Takahata in the NHK music variety show "Ogen-san to issho", he also expressed excitement at being able to sing the theme song for her drama and is eagerly awaiting the day when the song is finally ready to be heard by everyone during the drama's broadcast.
