Had a lot of ads, but this became a hot topic in Korea.
Nantong City Building in Jiangsu Province, China
She can sign all those and open a Rakuten shop now
Like, I Really WANT to like Sakura. And I did about a year before she joined p48. But now I feel like she's almost been culturally washed into Korean. Korean beauty standards, Korean standards in general. I feel sick knowing she's missing her friends graduations and spending time in general with her friends. I can't wait for next year when everyone leaves. I want it to be FORGOT instantly. 0% influence on the group.
How can I like sakura without being accosicated with kpop? Dare I say having an *over rated* oshi. I mean you cant, no girl is overrated and all are loved but i think you get what I mean. No offense to anyone who actually likes what she's doing now, it's not for me.

I kinda get where you are coming from, and I hope its from a good place.
If you would allow me to change your mind a bit?
Spoiler: Don't click if you don't want to
Its something I struggled a bit as a Sakura and Juri oshi. Especially with all the bullcrap "traitor" comments. 2018 was a very interesting year
I think what helped me is to understand the respect and adoration of the person and not the image of the person that I have or want to have of her
a different and more direct way of saying this is:
you have a memory of Sakura that you really like and really want to protect
but at the end of the day. You are supporting just a memory and not a person
I realize that the aidoru business is of course the selling of an image. Perhaps more K-pop than 48G, I do empathize with that
but I can't see myself putting her in box and just stare at it like some ornate decoration only good for display
If anything, I want them to push the boundaries. Go for it, and have no regrets.
Open your eyes and open your mind to the world
(and the added plus is having the world open their eyes and mind to them as well)
After all that, here have a Sakura
Actually, there is a clear line between forgetting all of 48G thing and Izone restricting her activities. We know she still cares about 48G and her friends in Japan, and maybe even Sakura herself didn't know she will have such limited access to her group in Japan. And I also want Sakura back to HKT as soon as possible.
Sakura's new "ID pic" for her group's Secret Diary photobook. Reminds me of 48g yearly portrait pics
^ its either a bad angle or the Photoshop person needs to be replaced...
I understand what you're saying but I think this is a big issue a lot of times with idols. They are human beings, not dolls. People will change when a drastic change happens in their life. Idols are pretty young and impressionable and especially in that age people will change a lot when their surroundings change – only people who never leave their neighbourhood never change (and I know there's plenty of people who spend their whole lives in the same circles and never 'spread their wings,' so to speak).
I understand missing her and feeling sad about the fact that she's missing important HKT48 events, but saying you want it to be forgot and having zero influence on Sakura is another testament to the fact that you only consider her a pretty doll to look at and not a human being. I'm sure when she's back to Japan, she will adapt more to the group again – that's what peer pressure and influence does to you. She will assimilate to her peers, just as she's done before when she moved from Japan to Korea. Sakura is obviously tremendously enjoying her time with IZ*ONE and saying you want her to disregard these two and a half years and never think about it again emphasises that you support the idea of a person, and not the actual person.
I know I won't get you to like the things Sakura is doing or how she's dressing and doing her hair, and that's not what I want to do. That's just personal preference. But if you truly appreciate, love and support someone, you will also support the aspects of their life that aren't your cup of tea. For all the hard work and the things Sakura has done for us, I think it's the least we can do for her if we show her support on a journey that she's having fun on.
