Yes!!! Thank you for creating individual JKT48 girls threads
Well, I might as well get things started with the Melody love then
She first caught my eye in their version of the Heavy Rotation PV. Heavy Rotation is one of my all time favourite AKB PV's and Yuko is my favourite AKB member. I can not get enough of Yuko's opening '1,2..1,2,3,4!' in that PV. The power she delivers it with. So considering that Melody takes Yuko's part in JKT48's version, she's stepping into some big shoes as far as I am concerned. And damn if she doesn't just nail it perfectly
As soon as I saw her do that I had to know who she was (I basically only knew one JKT member by name at that point
I think she makes a great front girl. She's got a great look, a real big warm smile and she seems to give a good stage performance too. My only wish is that she'd get a little more confidence with her dancing. She still seems to hesitate when she's doing that small solo dance bit that Yuko does in Heavy Rotation. She doesn't really put herself into it, especially the drop. But I bet that will all come with time.
So yeah, I can see Melody staying as one of my favourites. I really don't know a lot about her yet cause the group is so new and I'm relying on whatever info we get from the Indonesian fans really. But I'm really excited to learn more about her
And as for the NEW SHIP PV, I nearly had a mini heart attack with the awesome that was seeing her intial interaction with Fresh Lemon and Suuchan
And then the bit when Jurina waves Melody over I was all like '*tears of joy*Yes Melody, you can do it! Jurina! Show everyone the way!'
Just so awesome.
