Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's Upcoming Single "Mondai Girl" To Be Used For TV Drama Series
It’s been confirmed that Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will sing the theme song for Fuji TV’s new drama, Mondai no Aru Restaurant. This upcoming drama is being scripted by Yuji Sakamoto (his famous pieces of work include Saikou no Rikon and Soredemo, Ikiteiku), and will star both established and up-and-coming actors and actresses such as Yoko Maki, Masahiro Higashide and Fumi Nikaido.

KPP’s new song, titled Mondai Girl (roughly translated as a girl with problems), was written especially for the show by Yasutaka Nakata (CAPSULE). The song is about inspiring women to let their true colours shine and be proud of who they are without worrying about what others may think. It’s catchy, encouraging and sounds like a pat on the back for many girls. It perfectly compliments the atmosphere of the drama, which is about a woman who stands strong and follows her dreams in a male-dominant society.

Mondai no Aru Restaurant will premiere on 15 Jan at 10PM.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
This is my first time singing a theme song for a TV drama and I’m honoured to be able to do it! I expressed my feelings through the song. I think it sounds different and interesting. This will be my first single in 2015. It’s edgy and cool! I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do!

Kazuyuki Shimizu, the producer of the show
For a long time, I thought Kyary Pamyu Pamyu would be the right artist to sing the theme song for my next drama! I thought she would be perfect because, despite her popularity, she had never sung a opening song for a TV drama! And I wanted to be the first one to ask her to do it!
Through the show, we want to support women and encourage them to achieve their goals. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is known for spreading Japanese kawaii culture to the world and I thought working with her may attract more female viewers.
The fact that the drama is set in Omotesando and Harajuku area made me want to work with her even more! I’m glad that she was happy to take the offer. Her new song matches the atmosphere of the drama. It’s catchy and easy to sing! I think it’s something that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. We now have to make the drama as catchy as her song!
