On November 24th, former AKB48 member Mitsumune Kaoru was absent from the opening day stage greeting for her starring film, ‘Joshi Camera‘, due to poor health.
A comment from Mitsumune herself was broadcast throughout the venue, “I’m sorry that I’m unable to apologize in front of everybody.”
Last month, Mitsumune withdrew from AKB48 due to her poor physical condition. This event was supposed to be her first public appearance after withdrawing from the group.
