Fukuda Saki starting on Drama "Maid Deka"
Saki Fukuda, 18, who is rapidly advancing in her acting career, will release her new single, “Asu e no Hikari” on Aug 12. This song will be used within the episodes of the Friday night drama on TV Asahi, “Maid Detective.” Fukuda plays the lead role of a detective who works undercover as a maid in a wealthy household where a murder has occurred.
This will be Fukuda’s first single in approximately 2 years and 5 months, and the first since signing with EMI Music Japan. The song has a melancholy melody that is reminiscent of songs from the 1980s, which is paired with an upbeat electro pop sound. In the Friday night drama, the song will play in the climax scenes of each episode where Fukuda, as the protagonist Aoi Wakatsuki, bursts out with her signature maid’s phrase, “Allow me to clean up the dirt from this evil.”
The limited edition single will come with a different design and a DVD containing the music video for the single and other bonus scenes such as behind-the-scenes footage. It will also come with a cell phone strap-cum-cleaner that is shaped after the weapon that Wakatsuki uses in the TV show, and a ticket to the CD’s upcoming release event.
