Member of girl group AKB48 and solo performer Tomomi Itano, 20, held a special private live event in Shibuya to publicize the release of her second solo single, "Fui ni," which will be released by King Records on July 13.
Itano, who turned 20 on July 3, told the press, "In the run-up to my birthday, I still didn't feel like I was finally becoming an adult. It hadn't sunk in yet. I'm looking forward to going back to my hometown and attending my coming-of-age ceremony with my old childhood friends."
When asked how she felt now was finally able to legally drink alcohol, she replied, "Even a sip of champagne makes me really hot. On the other hand, I've never been completely drunk, so maybe I'm not as big a lightweight as I think I am. We'll see."© Compiled from news reports
