Takahashi Juri Shares Why She Chose To Make Her Debut In Korea
AKB48 member and former “Produce 48” contestant Takahashi Juri shared her feelings on her upcoming Korean debut.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Takahashi Juri had signed with Woollim Entertainment and would be debuting in an upcoming girl group from the agency. She will also be graduating from the group AKB48.
On March 7, Takahashi Juri appeared on “AKB48’s All-Night Japan” and talked about her Korean debut. “I’m not satisfied with my current self and I think I need to shine brighter in the future. That’s why I decided to sign an exclusive contract with Woollim.”
She added, “I thought about whether it would be too difficult to promote simultaneously in Korea and Japan. Since it felt like I was doing things by halves, I decided to commit and focus on promoting only in Korea.”
She then thanked her AKB48 members, staff, and producer Akimoto Yasushi for cheering her on after she had made her choice.
