Japanese idol Minegishi Minami shaves her head as punishment for dating scandal


Reader request.

Article: AKB48 Minegishi Minami apologizes by shaving her head after caught in a scandal with boyfriend, fans shock

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate [Asian Junkie]

1. [+272, -8] She's not even a minor, she's an adult... I'm pretty sure Japanese non-celebrities have done worse than her, what's wrong with them?

2. [+259, -15] Such a difficult life to live as a celebrity. Makes me wonder why people stay in the profession when even their private lives are under such tight control.

3. [+112, -21] (I have no idea what this comment means, I assume it's something porno related)

4. [+37, -4] The commenters here are so hypocritical and fake. You all sit around calling IU a sl*t and witch hunt everyone to the depths of hell, and yet look at you all here feeling sorry for this Japanese idol. What a freaking joke, what an example of how disgusting human beings you all are.

5. [+36, -7] Was it absolutely necessary to go that far?;;; This just makes me realize how shameless some Korean idols are... Not a care in the world whether all of Korea has seen her bare body on webcam or not, promoting like nothing's wrong..

6. [+32, -3] T-ara should do this as a group

7. [+32, -1] Everyone talks as if they've never been out on a date at night before.. It's not like she bragged about it or released it herself, someone else took those pictures... Who's the one that should really be asking for forgiveness ㅋㅋㅋ Do her fans expect her to ask for their permission to date?

8. [+29, -1] What's T-ara doing

9. [+28, -1] I feel bad for her.. He's her boyfriend, who cares

10. [+25, -0] If our girl groups did this, we wouldn't have girl groups anymore but just a group of monks

11. [+19, -1] Can't even date on your own conditions tsk tsk... Why are people so quick to jump on dating scandals? They're probably jealous they don't have a date themselves...

12. [+18, -8] Korean idols have it so easy

13. [+18, -17] When will IU and T-ara shave their heads?

  3. I can't believe how they are still hung up on IU and T-ara. Let it fucking go already.

  4. It is true that the Japanese idol industry is far harsher than the Korean idol industry. But lol still the hypocrisy

  5. this is horrible and disgusting. i can't believe. omfg no words.

    LMAO, that will hit the spot.
    and also LOL at the mention of T-ara >:))

    ReplyDelete
  7. Lol the hypocrisy. Considering how much netizens freak out about dating scandals of Korean celebs. Especially idols.



    That being said, I feel awful for Miichan, and this whole situation sucks hardcore. I hope she's voted back into the main group in the next AKB48 election.

    ReplyDelete
  8. i can't believe that koreans are encouraging their idols to do this as well...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Japanese idol dates, punished by company.
    Korean idol dates, punished by netizens.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The kind of thinking that makes women think they have to apologize or justify having a relationship (sexual or otherwise) is the biggest problem. The comments demanding IU and T-ara do the same thing are the absolute worst.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow I understand T-ara, but asking IU to shave her head really?

    ReplyDelete
  12. True. Japanese idols can't date. It's in their contracts. Thus why Miichan has been punished by her company for being caught dating. It's a ridiculous thing to have in a contract in my opinion.


    Korean Idols usually don't come out with their relationships, but at least companies aren't completely forbidding them and writing it into their contracts. That's going too far.

    ReplyDelete
  13. dumbass. japanese idols are also criticized by their netizens. why do you think she shaved her head? because her dating scandal upset the akb stans.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Her management company maybe forcing her to filmed the video. i feel bad for her. they took down the video after fans requesting it. Girls shaving her hair in Japan are common. Its an act to showed to her family that she regret doing it but show the video to the world are just terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  15. One thing they should know
    She broke the rule
    If she do it after she graduate it's fine, but not when she's in AKB
    Company didn't punish her
    The only thing the company did was demoted her into a kenkyusei
    She shaved herself on her own

    ReplyDelete
  16. ya'll are idiots, this is a genius move by her company. instead of being slut shamed, she will have all of the public's sympathy. people will buy her stuff in droves and she will be back on top in a few months. they pretty much turned the scandal completely around in her favor. genius.

    1. Agreed, whoever the CEO of their company, he's a GENIUS.

  17. This kind of humiliation really turn me on

    ReplyDelete
  18. I requested for this post! thank you for translating. I was interested to see the reactions of k-netizens because their reaction towards idol dating is very similar to japanese netizens.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Even her fans think she didn't need to do something like this, i mean the punishment that the company give her it was enough.
    Shaving her hair and making a video of apologize it was her doing, she made a mistake. AKB girls CANT date.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I thought she had ehemn* with that guy. Regardless, she mentioned that she grew with the girls and she wouldn't want to leave them. Seriously, a celebrity's life is like a CCTV recording you each time you breathe.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Miichan! Omg I felt so bad for her. She was even demoted to kenkyuusei even though she's one of the 1st gen members :(

    ReplyDelete
  22. Arrgh!! You've got to be kidding me. Did it every occur to you that the rules are wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  23. they can date. a lot of them date. they just can't be CAUGHT dating.

    ReplyDelete
  24. good for her she got what she deserved

    ReplyDelete
  25. 6. [+32, -3] T-ara should do this as a group

    Exactly what I thought since I open this article

    ReplyDelete
  26. of course its wrong, but what can we do? we want it or not, it was her fault. yeah, the rules sucks, it made her feel so guilty that she shave her head and made a video apologizing, cause she did wrong (even if its not something wrong, but u know what i mean)

    ReplyDelete
  27. it was even reported in the guardian (uk news)

    I'm glad this is getting attention internationally because the way AKB48 is marketed is extremely disturbing

    ReplyDelete
  28. I guess what i don't understand about this is just the fact that this punishment is different than from other girls who were caught dating. Normally they just either kick them out or demote and that's that. But this is the first time I've seen them release an apology video for it and knowing she was a first generation, it's just heartbreaking really.

    ReplyDelete
  29. there's one comment that says that and it has a lot of thumb downs.

    ReplyDelete
  30. wow quiet shock in K-netizen reaction..so hypocrite..when korean celeb. caught dating they almost kill that celeb by flooding hateful comments and bashes..just wow...

    ReplyDelete
  31. secretly. they are not allowed to date.

    ReplyDelete
  32. they release the video cause SHE want it to, SHE shave her head cause she want to. (they already deleted the video btw)
    the punishment by the company was demote her to kenjyuusei ;__; (trainee)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Japanese idols are virgins .. Korean idols are like cheap sl*ts compared to them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. that news is everywhere now, she and AKB48 are getting so much attention from the media.

    AKB48 take their honor very serious.

    ReplyDelete
  35. that's why people respect japanese idols more than korean idols

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is why harakiri originated in Japan. Everywhere celebrities get this not only in Japan and Korea

  37. WHAT ABOUT DIRTY MANWHORE AKANISHI JIN WHO FUCKED MEISA AND GOT HER PREGGERS

  38. Wonder Girls Sunye should learn from Minegishi Minami how to respect their group and company.

  39. in terms of talent, korean idols are better.

    japanese idols are GARBAGE.

    johnnys and akb

    i prefer namie amuro,exile, bright,miyavi etc etc

    ReplyDelete
  40. This idea that whether a woman's value is higher or lower based on their virginity is outdated and /wrong/. Your kind of thinking is not only sexist, but there's a good dash of racism in there too. Your kind of thinking encompasses everything wrong with the world. Please expand your world views, or at the least, try not to infect anyone else with your backwards thinking.

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's a horrible situation, but she DID break the rules. Her contract specifically had a "no dating" rule and she violated it, with photographic evidence and everything. It sucks but this was the consequence of her actions.

    It's so unfortunate that such a rule was even in place.

    ReplyDelete
  42. iconiq shaved her head too when she came back to the japanese industry,
    she was ayumi lee from sugar in korea and apparently she was talking negatively about the japanese in korea. shes zainichi korean

    ReplyDelete
  43. well they are idols, so talent in singing or whatever it's the least that we notice

    ReplyDelete
  44. Didn't he get kicked out of JE because he didn't tell them about getting Meisa pregnant and marrying her?

    ReplyDelete
  45. wow netizen buzz ives sent you countless articles to translate.. are you even doing requests?

    and you do this one just because asian junkie asked, this is not even kpop related

    ReplyDelete
  46. i thought he was still in johnnys?

    ReplyDelete
  47. he "resigned" or so it was reported

    ReplyDelete
  48. i think his only punishment of that was his tour got cancelled and he had to pay for it with his own money.


    Idk, for the MOST part, JE covers for the bigger names when they get into such scandals, unless they become a mess like that situation, but that's my observation

  50. what's that suppose to mean? WG dating ban was lifted when she started dating her husband and JYP put her happiness first

    and lets not forget he also fucked a 15 yr old girl and he was sent to america "to study english"

  56. The semester just started for me. I am extremely back logged and there are only so many hours in the day I can dedicate to this blog. I will tell you up front that I have stopped checking Tumblr requests. The fastest way to contact me is through e-mail, but I will not guarantee that all of your requests will be fulfilled. I barely have enough time to cover what is in the rankings, much less look for requests from demanding people like you.

    lol. Considering you're on a site dedicated to news surrounding Asians, you should tale a seat and shut up. lolol.


    Sorry your oppas aren't up here right now, I'm sure if you wait they'll be here sooner or later.

  59. "The commenters here are so hypocritical and fake. You all sit around calling IU a sl*t and witch hunt everyone to the depths of hell, and yet look at you all here feeling sorry for this Japanese idol. What a freaking joke, what an example of how disgusting human beings you all are." THIS.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Yeah... Everyone knows that Akimoto bans all of his idols from dating. It's extremely strict because a good chunk of AKB48's fans are wotas or at least otakus...


    Minami was already demoted back to a trainee; even though the shaving her head part was supposedly her own decision, the fact that her dating someone is seen as something so taboo that she has to feel THIS guilty about it is disturbing to me. :(


    Meanwhile, the guy she was caught dating gets absolutely no flack at all... Korea and Japan aren't really that different, tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Lol JYPE allowed her to date so your argument is invalid.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Sunye doesn't care about WG anymore, she even got married before their huge US debut and korean comeback, so..

    ReplyDelete
  63. JYP doesn't particularly "ban" his idols from dating, he just discourages it. Especially in regards to 2PM and 2AM.


    What he DID do recently before WG promoted "Be My Baby" was allow them to date openly.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Lol which is why she's performing with the girls in two days... smh. The troll is strong with this one.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Considering you're the one who said you've sent in countless articles to be translated, it's obvious who the asian junkie is here. I think you're just mad NB is at your beck and call. Grow the fuck up.

  66. asian junkie shutup

The world doesn't revolve around you and your love for oppa, maybe you should try somewhere else that will translate the "countless" number of articles you need to have translated to feed your fetish. Netizenbuzz obvs doesn't have time for your shit.

    how you are so pressed that i called nb on not translating requests
    i dont see why it bothers you so much since i was never talking to you asian junkie

    why do you care?

    you should really calm down okay

  84. What is it about a rational comment that brings all the trolls out?

  85. exactly.
    some people call Sunye selfish but I think she's smart because Wonder girls are going down.

  86. UngratefulMotherfuckersFebruary 3, 2013 at 12:42 AM

    Because you should be grateful that she even takes the time out to translate shit at all, instead you fucking complain that shes not fulfilling your wishes and its people like you that are annoying as fuck and ruin it for everybody else. Poor Koreaboo doesn't get what she wants cry cry cry. It takes time to do this and I'm sure she has a life.


    LOLOLOLOL. Considering you just said jpop is garbage .. lol i cant with you omg lolol

    ReplyDelete
  87. how many accounts does he/she have...

    nb should go on hiatus. it would probably cause that person to lose their mind lol

That's the problem, people complaining NB doesn't do everything for them like its her job to translate everything. She does this blog for us for free, I've seen more than a few people complain about her not doing what they ask and soon enough its going to piss her off and NB will close and they will be bitchin about that.

    yes japanese idol music is garbage, does it bother you that i said that?

    http://www.asianjunkie.com/2013/02/akb48s-minegishi-minamis-public-shaming-rebutting-the-excuses/
    explains pretty well why "it's just the rules" kind of thinking is wrong. An excerpt:

    If she signed a contract to be prostituted out to corporate heads,
    then we should be okay with that too because “she knew what she was getting into”? Forced to wear a sign that says “I’m a whore” in the middle of Akihabara? Beaten? Tortured? What is the end game here? Where is the line where “she agreed to be punished if she got into a relationship, so stop making a big deal out of it” is no longer valid?

  109. Shirahama Alan IS an idol... He is part of a J-pop group called GENERATIONS under LDH and they're part of EXILE TRIBE, along with EXILE, EXILE ATSUSHI, Nidaime J Soul Brothers, Sandaime J Soul Brothers, E-Girls, and a couple of other J-pop groups.

    ReplyDelete
  110. He's still an idol. Even if his company has no dating restrictions, no one's giving him shit for having a sleepover with his girlfriend. Whenever this sort of thing happens, it's always the girl that gets the flack.

    Even when Arashi's leader, Ohno Satoshi, got busted for smoking weed and having a three-some with two random chicks, people only criticized him a little bit but after he apologized everyone dropped the issue. And Arashi is under JE, and Johnny has a dating ban just as strict as Akimoto's.

    Amuro Namie is one of Japan's most famous idols. She got knocked up by some no-name Japanese musician and had a shotgun wedding, only to file for divorce 3 years later and raise him as a single mother. Even though she's famous and has a ton of money, she's still discriminated against for getting pregnant out of wedlock over a decade ago, for getting divorced, and for being a single working mother.



    I love Japan and I love Korea, but patriarchal societies make me sick.

  113. Korean idols are not cheap sluts -_-

    ReplyDelete
  114. are you serious..

    pop group =/= idol
    exile is not an idol group and neither are any of the groups associated with them. His company already gave a statement after the scandal and said they don't care about his personal life. An idol (like akb & johnnys) would not be given that kind of option

    ReplyDelete
  115. Well her company did not asked her to shave her head, she did it herself cause she want to show "remorse". But in truth, she doesn't want to be kicked out of AKB48 just like one of her team-mates.


    AKB48 revolves around otakus thinking that they might have a chance at their idols. Same as any fangirls.

    ReplyDelete
  116. So hypocritical. Zico did the same thing. So people shouldn't be acting that the k-industry is easier or something. Every entertainment industry is tough.

  126. Lol, I really hope there's a netizenbuzz for the Koreans, to let them see how we see the K-pop groups and how we react to controversies. Childish Koreans that keep saying T-ara should do this do that but didn't think before they type those comments. Harp in the past and cry over everything. I'm sure there are some Koreans who "forgive" their actions, and I'm glad. Well, T-ara didn't really make a mistake, but Koreans made it a mistake, and blablabla. Pooping out shit and now throwing shit at those they hate, that's what haters do best.

  127. I guess she apologized because the group have a "NO boyfriend rule" and she doesn't want to be demoted in the group.

    i search their group in YT and man! they have a lot of members and a hundred plus of trainees.I was like O_O when i saw their music video wearing a lingerie.

    1. Korea has a lot ot catching up to do when its about idol videos and quality of fanservice. You are probably talking about the video "Heavy Ritation" if you list every single music video of AKB the top 5 most viewed ones are the ones where they wear lingerie or swimsuits.
      Sex sells and Korea needs to deliver more fan service.
      And they should start releasing photobooks of each individual member of the popular groups. I bet fans would buy it if they knew it will have a few swimsuit or lingerie shots in it.

  128. I can take sexist statements because some people are just like that, but I can't believe what you just said. That's literally saying Sunye has to apologize for falling in love and finding happiness AND has to repent by way of shaving her hair off?


    First, why does Sunye have to apologize? That girl has something called a life. Being a WG was part of her life experience, got her share in the limelight, and now she's choosing to move on to the next stage of life. JYP has respected her wishes, and it was concluded peacefully. That's fair. What's not normal is when people demand she give up what's important to her to serve them for their own selfish reasons, when being a singer is an occupation, having a husband is for live. You can't expect someone to grow old single and never married and forever stay that way to serve their needs and then later despise them because they are old, how selfish is that??


    And, how the hell is minegishi's way of apology by shaving off her hair even okay? For a girl to be so frightened and worried of her backlash that she thinks public humiliation and atonement for her 'sins' - which is dating is SO horrible it deserves such a harsh punishment, dealt out by herself, and then endorsed by her company, isn't this shocking how a society and their culture pushes people to become like this? If you accept this all because 'this is their culture', then you clearly don't see what's wrong with Japan's culture too. The Japanese people put a lot of shame into airing dirty laundry, and what that girl did, is almost as equivalent as atonement for sleeping with married men and then breaking up families, which she didn't.


    I fail to even comprehend how you would recommend an idol like Sunye, who is nice and has found happiness, to break her marriage and apologize and punish herself for finding something that most people take their whole lives to find!


    This is so messed up.

  132. lol stop. there's like at most 1 good singer in every kpop group. they dance better because they put more emphasis in it. jpop idols don't try to do the robotic/uniform thing that kpop idols do. each market likes different things. this is a site for koreaboos though so obviously y'all will think kpop idols are more talented.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Yes, the group did wrong, but do you think the situation warranted him to shave his head. Both idol systems in Japan and Korea are too harsh.
    I just feel so sad for the girl, this is just sick.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Nah, she got a better punishment than most girls in AKB get. Popular members are usually demoted. Most who get caught in compromising positions are more likely to be forced to graduate (basically fired). Her head shaving and release of the video are all her voluntary decisions. And to be perfectly honest, Miichan has a flair for the dramatic so after the initial shock, this sort of actions seems like her.

    1. She got demoted to trainee though, I forgot the word, starts with K lol, it was in the news,,,,Just that the news of her shaving her head overshadowed that part . But I got to agree though, the head shaving probably is some kind of PR genius stunt, instead of people slut shaming, she's gonna have people symphatizing with her instead, she'll probably be able to bounce back on top within a year.

  141. Hyprocites. Wow. LOL. They need to look at the mirror and think what they just said.

  142. As sad as this situation is, there's one fact that's being left out in all of this. One of the conditions of the girls' AKB48 contract is that they do not date. I do not support this rule, and I find it ridiculous that their management expects them to follow this rule when most of them joined AKB48 around age 13, when they really hadn't had the desire to date or w/e. So as upset I am for her and think that this situation has gone too far, I do feel that she should have apologized at least to her company for breaking the rules, but not for dating. I don't get why people think IU needs to justify herself for being human. They act like she committed some sin...

  145. it’s the humiliation aspect in this that has pushed the incident over the edge.
    She signed her contract when she was 13. Does her contract say that she will be punished like this if violating it? This is just ridiculous whether she broke the rules or didn't.

  146. Anybody who can watch that video or just look at her and think that’s appropriate punishment is a piece of shit

  147. she did that herself inside their theater's make-up room... The theater director claims a staff tried to stop her but she did it anyway, cut her bangs with a scissors and shaved it herself. She was devastated with situation she couldn't give a damn whether she shaved off her hair perfectly or not.

  157. I didn't say shaving her head was her part of her punishment. It's releasing the video.

    Shaving your head is the utmost form of showing your apologies and regret in Japanese culture. But I thought the video was a decision of her companies and that I don't understand.

    ReplyDelete
  158. yeah but they dont go as far as doing this

    ReplyDelete
  159. She shave her head because she was caught coming out after spending the night at her rumored boyfriend's house. Her group, AKB48 had a strict 'NO-dating AT ALL' rule. If you got caught, you will be kicked out of the group or get demoted to a trainee which what she is getting right now.
