Fukuyama Masaharu and Shibasaki Kou have teamed up again for their music collaboration project KOH+ for the first time in 5 years. This time, Fukuyama wrote the song "Koi no Maryoku" (The Magic of Love" which will be sung by Shibasaki and is the theme song of Fukuyama's new spring drama "Galileo".
Recording of the original Japanese version was done in mid February and the duo still showed great chemistry despite not having worked together on a song for the past 5 years. Shibasaki praised Fukuyama for being a good producer while Fukuyama also commented that Shibasaki had become more expressive in her singing so she managed to finish the recording in almost one complete take.
In addition, there will be two additional version i.e. the Korean version to be sung by KARA's Gu Hara and the Chinese version to be sung by Taiwanese singer A-Lin.
As for the Korean version, Gu Hara will form the duo HARA+ with Fukuyama while the Chinese version will see him working with A-Lin under the A-Lin+ name. This is the first time that Fukuyama is working with a non-Japanese singer so he's surprised at how his songs sound in a different language.
