This week, FLASH magazine published a report on SKE48 member Matsumura Kaori’s past as a cabaret girl, releasing photos of her cosplaying as a maid when she was working there. Her ex-colleagues confirmed that the girl in the photo was her.
Since what she worked as or who she dated before she joined SKE48 was her freedom, Matsumura did not need to feel obliged to answer questions relating to the report. However, she surprised everyone by stating frankly “Yes, during that time i had no money so i worked at a cabaret. When i think about it, considering my looks, i feel sorry to the customers.”
Her reaction is in striking contrast to fellow groupmate AKB48 Kashiwagi Yuki, who has chosen to remain silent after photos of her with NEWS Tegoshi Yuya was leaked by Bunshun Shukan.
Report basically praises Matsumura Kaori and predicts her fanbase will increase.
