It was revealed that Takajo Aki and Nakagawa Haruka, who have transferred to JKT48, are making an appearance in a TV CM for “POCARI SWEAT” (Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.) that will be aired in Indonesia.
This will mark the third “POCARI SWEAT” CM that JKT48 members have starred in, and other JKT48 members Melody and Shania are also appearing in the CM with Takajo and Nakagawa. There will be three different versions for the CM, with the “Love Letter” version featuring Nakagawa currently airing in Indonesia. A “Presentation” version that features Takajo, as well as a “Movie” version that features Shania will also begin airing soon.
In addition, it was revealed that SKE48’s “Gomen ne, Summer” is being used as the CM song for all the versions. This marks the first time that JKT48 has covered SKE48’s song.
Takajo commented, “I was very happy to be able to join the shoot for the CM as a member of JKT48 for the first time. Though it was only with Melody and Shania, I would love to get along with other JKT48 members more. Since the CM will be watched by many people, I want those people to know that we have joined JKT48 now.”
Nakagawa added, “I was so happy to appear in the ‘POCARI SWEAT’ CM in Indonesia. The shoot in Jakarta was so much fun, and I was able to learn Indonesian. I can’t wait to see the reaction by the fans in Indonesia who watch the CM.”
