(VE and gahaida JKT48)
i just reblog the translation from http://mazroy48.tumblr.com/
Honestly, I have long wanted to write about JKT48 since the first time I see their debut on television. I always thought they’re very different from any other names in Indonesia’s showbiz industry and will certainly be interesting to write an article about them. Unfortunately, they are actually not the main target of the magazine where I work. Well, NYLON is identical with the names that are not in the realm of mainstream tastes. Hence the name NYLON still feels alien to the majority of Indonesian people eventhough actually in January 2013 we will be at the age of two years. Can not be blamed, because the nature of NYLON USA, Japan, Korea, Mexico does have its own niche market that distinguishes us from the other magazines out there.
Back to JKT48, a chance to show and write about them were coming as we prepare November edition issue with the theme of Celebrity Issue. this Celebrity Edition is a once in a year chance for NYLON to “go public” and appeal to the wider masses by showing more pop and mainstream names, including JKT48. On October 11, me, my fashion stylist Ayu hendriani and photographer Mohammed Asranur came to JKT48 Theatre at Fx 4th floor. That day, JKT48 members is also doing a photo session for their latest photopack and recording sessions. Initially, in an email Jakarta Official Team (JOT) proposes to take photo of 24 members altogether, at the end we finally agreed to take only seven members, namely: Ghaida, Ve, Melody, Stella, Ayana, Shania and Nabilah. The selection itself is the seventh member of the JOT choice, which was the seven members selected for the single “Gomen ne, Summer”.
The photo session starts from 4 pm, and the members were interviewed plus photographed alternately. Starting from Stella who was accidentally leaked where she attend her college (no, I will not tell you where), continued with Nabilah that makes me pretty tired because she talked all the time like a machine gun. after that Shania and Ayana interviewed together, by chance it turns out they are both class 3 SMP (ninth grade) and right now they are preparing for their ninth grade final exams (ganbatte!). Ghaida and Veranda both are college freshman. I Could not bear to see Ghaida that look very weak due to being sick, but during the interview and photoshoot, Ghaida without complaining done it very professionally. For Veranda, the trurth is she is one of the member that i’m not familiar with, but that thought changed immediately after the interview and after I watch JKT48 Theater for the first time (I watched it during the one year celebration of JKT48), where Ve appear awesomely cool and her solo line in “Inoichi”, which she said ” Kak, take me away! ” has successfully made her one of my favorite members.
The last that being interviewed is Melody, who had just arrived from Bandung at around 9 pm. Yup, imagine I was in theater from 4 pm to 10 pm, during that time Cindy Gulla trolled me by asking me to guess her age. Ah well, in the end I am very satisfied with the results of this interview and photoshoot of JKT48. Although lately it seems JKT48 is going through a few problems, I hope they can continue to survive and become even better. Before the interview I did like JKT48 but I know them only from TV screen, and I didn’t really understand about their struggles and their hopes. Now, I feels just like many other fans, there is a feeling of wanting to continue to encourage them to grow. I hope the best thing for these girls.
Next wish: Interviewing Akichan and Harugon. I hope It came true, hehe.
