Singer Ken Hirai (38) will be providing the theme song for the upcoming movie "Ghost: Mou Ichido Dakishimetai," set for release on November 13. This will be Hirai's fifth time doing a theme for a romance film, and the song is expected to be a hit like his previous ones.
"Ghost: Mou Ichido Dakishimetai" was announced earlier this year as an Asian remake of the famous 1990 movie "Ghost," which starred Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. The remake, however, has the roles of the couple reversed, with Nanako Matsushima (36) playing a woman who dies in an accident but revisits her lover, played by Korean actor Song Seung Hun (33). The full cast was revealed a few weeks ago, including Kirin Kiki (67) as the counterpart to Whoopi Goldberg's role in the original.
Hirai's song is titled "Aishiteru" and will be released as his 33rd single on November 10.
