Five more days to go and all the lucky Chasters in Japan will be able to get their hands on a copy of Charice’s new song, “Far as the Sky.” For the rest of us living elsewhere, we’re at the mercy of those in Japan whether they’ll be uploading the whole song on Youtube. But every single Chaster loves to share Charice’s new gigs, so there’s no reason to be worried.
“Bull Doctor”, the Japanese TV show that will feature “Far as the Sky” as its theme song, will also start airing this July 2011. Its broadcast schedule is every Wedenesday at 10 p.m. on the Nihon TV Network. The cast of the show is doing their best to promote “Bull Doctor”, and they’re doing interviews on different talk shows. Short teasers are also being aired on TV to get people excited about the premiere of this new mystery/crime drama.
A Chaster has already uploaded a promotional interview with the cast of Bull Doctor on Youtube. Though there’s no English translation for the rest of the video, Charice’s “Far as the Sky” has Engish lyrics, so there’s no need for any subtitles. We’re just waiting for someone to isolate the song and decrease the other sounds from the video so we can hear Charice’s voice in a much clearer way. Checkout the interview video below:
Below is a clearer copy of a teaser video for “Bull Doctor”, and you can hear Charice singing “Far as the Sky” in the background. The emotion of the song is really fitting for the story of this drama series. Kayuza Toda, the producer who personally contacted Charice to sing the theme song for “Bull Doctor”, even said that “I have this strong confidence and conviction in my heart that the message of humanism this drama will give, and the emotions that Charice will bring to this drama, will make a fantastic collaboration.”
So if you already like “Far as the Sky” from the short part you hear above, what more when the full song is released, right?
