K-pop idol group Big Bang has been tapped to sing the theme song for weekend Japanese news program “Mezamashi” on Fuji TV, according to the Japanese newspaper Sankei sports on Tuesday.

A representative from Sankei sports stated, “This is the first time Hallyu artists were chosen to sing the theme song for the Fuji TV news program.”

The song “HANDS UP” from the boy band is still in production but will air for six months starting April 3.

Big Bang members Daesung and Seungri said, “We are busily preparing the song that will make everyone happy.”

Big Bang released their debut single album in Japan last June and appeared on the live broadcast of “Mezamashi Terebi” on the same day. They were also the special guest stars for the 15th anniversary of Mezamashi TV in February.

Big Bang made their debut in 2006 with the single “Bigbang,” after being discovered and trained by major talent house YG Entertainment. They are considered to be one of the biggest cultural icons for Korea’s younger generation in music and fashion.

They released their digital single “Lollipop Pt. 2” in mid-February which was used in the LG cellular phone commercial.
