Some of these girls have just been shuffled into their current positions 6 months ago and are probably just getting chummy with their new teams…i’m sure it must have been quite a shock judging from their expressions. But if i have to guess, i think the management must have pulled them out because they aren’t pulling in extra fans for the group they’ve joined. Jurina and Milky on the other hand, must have done quite well…..what are your thoughts on the shuffle?
