RADWIMP's song "Bouningen" has been selected to be the theme song to the upcoming drama series "Frankenstein no Koi".
"Bouningen" is a track off of RADWIMP's latest album "Ningen Kaika". It was chosen to be the drama's theme song due to the lyrics matching the atmosphere of the show.
"I was a little surprised when I first got the script because I thought 'Bouningen' was a song for humans. However, if the protagonist's story is about his desire to live like a human, then we have something in common with Frankenstein," Yojiro Noda, the band's vocalist, said.
The selection of "Bouningen" as the show's theme song is notable because most dramas use new music as their theme song. The relationship is mutually beneficial for both the artist and the program.
"Frankenstein no Koi" will begin airing on April 23.
