JYJ member's new song will feature in the January release
Heads up, JYJ fans: Jaejoong is coming to Smile at the Runway!
The K-pop star will be performing the upcoming show's ending theme, "Ray of Light." Previously, Jaejoong performed the second OP theme for Zoids Wild, "Defiance."
Smile at the Runway is based on the manga of the same by Kotoba Inoya, about a pair of fashion industry hopefuls prevented from chasing their dreams by seemingly insurmountable issues. Chiyuki dreams of being a professional model, but is too short; Ikuto wants to be a fashion designer, but has given up his dreams to support his family financially. When they cross paths, they decide to work together in hopes of achieving their seemingly impossible goals.
Jaejoong describes "Ray of Life" as a bright, hopeful ballad about working hard to achieve your dreams.
Smile at the Runway premieres January 10th in MBS's "Animeism" block.
