We previously announced that K-POP superstar Kim Jaejoong is singing the opening theme of Crunchyroll Original Noblesse, the TV anime adaptation of writer Jeho Son and illustrator Kwangsu Lee’s webcomic published on WEBTOON. Now, we’re happy to announce that the song 'BREAKING DAWN' was produced by Japanese rock star HYDE, who wrote the song for Kim Jaejoong and Noblesse TV anime.
HYDE spoke about how he was “inspired” to write the song “by one message, ‘Fight to protect your friends and important stuff’." The song ‘BREAKING DAWN’ takes the themes of Noblesse, as well as the thoughts of what Kim Jaejoong’s fans would enjoy, and bring them together to create the tune.
Here is HYDE’s full comment on ‘BREAKING DAWN’:
“'BREAKING DAWN' was inspired by one message, ‘Fight to protect your friends and important stuff’ which is the theme of the TV anime Noblesse.
Because Kim Jaejoong is very fond of his fans, I wanted to make his fans happy with the words I wrote for him.
I think the song we've made together is great, so please enjoy it!”
