YUI has been assigned to write the theme song of the movie Paradise Kiss, starred by Kitakawa Keiko.
Two songs have been written. The opening song 「HELLO~Paradise Kiss~」 and the ending, 「YOU」.
When the popular manga of Ai Yazawa (NANA) was adapted to a live action movie, YUI, being a fan of the original work, commented “The melody came to me smoothly. I have completed a song full of hope.”
