“MONDAI Girl” is the theme song for Fuji TV drama “MONDAI NO ARU Restaurant”, starting Yoko Ueki. It is also Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s first time doing a drama theme song. The video was shot in the freezing cold of Tokyo in February. The shoot started at 8:00am and ended on the next morning at 8:00am. It was a hectic 24-hour shoot. Just as with her previous videos, this video was directed by Jun Tamukai, and the costume design was done by Kumiko Iijima. Kyary wrote the lyrics to “MONDAI Girl” and put a lot of herself into the song. Again, this music video was a joint effort with discussions with her staff. It is the way she has done things since before her debut.

“’MONDAI Girl’ combines cool music and aggressive lyrics, so I tried to be aggressive in the music video as well. I tried new things like wearing an all pink costume like a celebrity and an all black costume like in anime.
This is the first time I danced with foreign dancers, and it was very exhilirating. I made the chorus simple so that it is easy to dance to. So please memorized the music video and come join me at my concerts” –Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
