Haruka Nakagawa – Her Decision
THE REAL LIVE WEB in Japan is introducing small topics from show business events. On Feb 16th, they introduced a little bit about the “Watari Roka Hashiri Tai” final concert. Enjoy!
Title: Nakagawa Haruka, JKT48, talked about her decision for her activity in Jakarta after the dissolution of “Watari Roka Hashiri tai”.
On Feb 9th, the final concert of “Watari Roka Hashiri tai”, a derived unit from AKB48, was held in Tokyo, eight members such as Nakagawa Haruka and Watanabe Mayu, appeared. Nakagawa, who is currently active in JKT48, said her own decision in front of their fans.
“Watari Roka Hashiri tai”, who debuted in 2009 with 4 members such as Nakagawa and Watanabe, had been growing with joining and leaving members again and again, finally on this day they put an end to their five years’ activity.
As this unit was created with the school life concept, on this day a set of classroom was provided on the stage. Watanabe wrote her name on the name card for her locker, Nakagawa did graffiti on a bulletin board, they frisked as if they returned to their debut time when they were junior high and senior high school students, then the concert got started.
However, as concert went on, there was a scene that Nakagawa saw other members were frisking about and she seemed so happy that she said “nobody changed at all”.
Now Nakagawa is active in Indonesia, so far she appeared in 7 CM in Indonesia and she will make more CM contract. After she saw other members frisked on the stage, she introduced her position in Indonesia, “But I have to do as a senior member in Jakarta (JKT48)…”.
In her final greeting, Nakagawa disclosed her mind: “While I am in Jakarta, it sometimes comes to my mind to come back to Japan,” as she is active in foreign country. However she also said strongly “but then again, I always want to return to Jakarta.” Not only the members but also their fans were touched by Nakagawa’s decision.
It might be that Nakagawa is the one who proves that 48G is truly the “National Idol Group”.
