Taiyou no Uta (A Song to Sun)

Taiyou no uta is a story about a girl who was diagnosed with xeroderma pigmentosum, a disease where the affected person can’t go out during the day because exposure to ultraviolet rays may lead to the death of the person. Taiyou no uta has two versions, a movie and a series.

Basically, the story is about reaching her dream to be a singer and along the way she met the reason to fight her fate. In the movie, Amane Kaoru, the lead character was able to fulfil her dreams before she passed away by releasing an album, while in the series, when she was about to debut as a singer, her disease overcome her.

This story inspires me not to give up easily and tells me that I shouldn’t stop believing in my dreams that one day it will happen, just wait for the right time and work hard for it.

Note: There is a Korean version, a stage play, starring Kim Taeyeon of Girls' Generation
