It's been announced that ANGERME member Oota Haruka will be going on hiatus.
Reportedly, Oota violated a Hello! Project rule and admitted to doing so. Up Front Agency decided to "give her some time to reflect and think about what she has done with the awareness that she is a member [of Hello! Project and ANGERME]." They added, "As her agency, we are taking this case very seriously and plan to coach her from the basics."
Oota also commented, "I will take a break because I needed time to think about my naiveness as a celebrity and working adult. It's only been a year since I joined ANGERME, and I'm already causing problems to the members, staff, and other persons concerned. I am very sorry."
The length of her hiatus has not been determined at this time.
