“So much fun. Every member of JKT48 is still young, exciting and powerful! The dressing room is so lively,” said Haruka who spends time talking with other members.
“At first, there’s a barrier in language, the other member won’t start a conversation either,” said Haruka.
In January 2013, Haruka went to Bandung with some of the JKT48 members, and that’s when she began to get close to them.
