British boy band One Direction will be performing the theme song of the live-action movie adaptation of Kanae Hazuki’s romance manga series Suki-tte Ii na yo (Say, “I Love You”.)
The song is titled “Happily” and it is included in their album Midnight Memories, which has sold over 4.5 million copies worldwide.
One of the movie staff said they chose this song “because of the gorgeous melody and lyrics that make the heart beat are perfect for this movie’s world. So we made an offer to the band since we had nothing to lose by trying.”
Film premieres on July 12 in Japan
