On November 28th, AKB48’s Masuda Yuka announced on her official blog that she will withdraw from the group.
According to Masuda, there will be a report that she stayed overnight at DA PUMP member ISSA’s place, on a weekly magazine which will be issued tomorrow. Masuda wrote there were things that were not true on the report, but she admitted that, “It is true that I stayed there overnight.”
She also wrote, “I caused trouble by taking blithe action that lead to a misunderstanding by many people, and I have disappointed the fans who have supported me, team members, junior members, staff members, and my family. I thought a lot about what I should do from now on, and in order for me to take the responsibility, though this is quite a sudden announcement, I am withdrawing from AKB48.”
Masuda and ISSA co-stared with each other on Miyamoto Amon’s musical “Wiz ~Oz no Mahoutsukai~.“
