BTS stated, “We are happy to be able to participate in the theme song for the drama ‘Spiral Labyrinth.’ We hope that many people will look forward to it with love and interest. Please look forward to ‘Spiral Labyrinth’ and ‘Stay Gold!’”
They added, “‘Stay Gold’ is a bright song with expressive lyrics that anyone can relate to. It suits the atmosphere and story of ‘Spiral Labyrinth’ very well, so please enjoy them together.”
The drama’s lead actor, Tanaka Kei stated, “Generally speaking, it was a really cool song. It left an impression on my heart and ears and made an impact on me. I really like this song. If you listen carefully, it’s a medium number. Whether the drama will be a medium number as well, I don’t know yet, but I think that the combination of seemingly different things will build toward a new climax. Like the song says, I will work hard as a cast member to make the drama ‘Stay Gold.’ Also, because BTS is popular with the people around me, I will remind everyone to watch the drama.”
According to reports, the series would be based on the manga of the same name revolving around a DNA expert who collaborates with a detective to track down a murderer. The series will start airing on April 24th on TV Tokyo.
