"Fumetsu no Scrum" is the nineteenth single by Japanese boy band KAT-TUN. The song "Fumetsu no Scrum" is the theme song for MBS/TBS’s drama. “Dragon Seinendan” stars Yasuda Shota, who is a member of Kanjani 8, and is Yasuda’s first solo serial drama. The drama tells the story of the opening of a door that takes one away from daily life into a fantasy. [1]
