Actor Hayato Ichihara (23) will be showing off more than his fighting skills in his upcoming movie "Box!" He'll also be collaborating with rock band RIZE for the film's theme song, titled "LAUGH IT OUT."
The song will be released on May 19 under the group name "RIZE with Hayato." Ichihara will be providing vocals as a rapper. Last year, he rapped for a bonus CD included with one of his photobooks, but this time will be his first involvement in an actual release under a major music label.
Directed by Toshio Lee, "Box!" stars Ichihara as a high school student with a gift for boxing. The movie opens in theaters on May 22.
