Ai's new single Planetarium will be used as the image song of "Hana yori Dango" (花より男子), a new Japanese drama based on Kamio Yoko's (神尾葉子) manga with the same title. Few years ago similar drama based on the same manga was made in Taiwan (called "Meteor Garden") and it has successfully created a new popular boy band in Asia called F4.

Anyway, the main thing here is that Ai's song will be used as the image song so we can almost foresee how popular Planetarium will become once they started promoting and showing the drama on TV (21 October 2005). To some of those J-Pop newbie who only watches Japanese drama, it is also a good chance for them to expose themselves to the power of our cutest Ai-chin.

Here's some photos of the casting of this Japanese drama:




There's also a video message of Ai available on the Hana yori Dango Official Site, where she talks about the upcoming single and about Planetarium being the image song for this drama. I ripped those out already, click on the following links for direct download:

That's really cool for planetarium can be the image song of this drama. I suppose this will be a great way to promote planetarium because manga of Hana yori Dango is really famous in Japan(or i should say SE Asia). Anyway, i don't really appreaciate this manga or the drama in Taiwan. Tongue

a couple asked what image song is
well its like a theme song but they can use it at commercials as well, and probably an instrumental will be as music backround in the drama series
seriously this release should be half a million..please Sad
