C-UTE OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED THAT THEY WILL DISBAND ON JUNE 2017 AT THE SAITAMA SUPER ARENA.
Earlier this year, C-ute's youngest member, Hagiwara Mai, has turned 20 years old. So they have started a discussion considering of what they will do in the future.
C-ute will no longer participate on H!P activities/concerts starting January 2017, which means H!P summer tour 2016 will be their last one.
Accordingly, there were 3 options, and they chose to end C-ute and reach their own dreams after.
Yajima Maimi will become an actress, Nakajima Saki will be a travel reporter, Suzuki Airi will be a newscaster or a versatile actress, Okai Chisato to continue on doing variety shows and Hagiwara Mai to enter the fashion (apparel) industry.
Though they have been in the idol world for quite a long time, hearing this news saddened and broke C-ute fans heart.
As a C-ute fan myself, it really broke my heart after knowing their decision on disbanding. They are the first group to introduce me to Hello!Project and I've been following the group (as well as H!P) for 7 years.
But since this is C-ute greatest dream, to perform on the stage of Saitama Super Arena, then let us support them from the bottom of heart.
There will still be like 10 months before they break up, so let us do our best to give our support and express our love for C-ute.
We will announce our graduation tribute plan soon! Keep in touch everyone!
