SKE48 Matsui Rena forgot about Valentine’s Day as she’d been too busy with promotion of records

  February 15, 2013

In her blog post posted on the night of the saint’s day, SKE48 member Matsui Rena revealed that she was too busy that she forgot it was Valentine’s day, and that she wants Cheese Fondue rather than chocolate.

Since she has been on a tight schedule for the promotional activities for SKE48’s thriving new single “Choco no Dorei” (チョコの奴隷 – Slave of Chocolate), she was so busy to remember it was Valentine’s day.

The latest 2 singles from SKE48, “Kiss datte Hidarikiki” and “Choco no Dorei”, both have become huge hits. Both singles sold over 500,000 copies in the first week after release, setting a record tied with AKB48.

The popularity of SKE48 mever stops increasing further since their participation in the Grand Year-End Music Show, Kohaku Utagassen. And Matsui Rena, the star member of the group, has been oin a super busy schedule since the new year.

In her blog postuploaded a little past 0:00 on Feburary 15th, Matsui wrote,

“Today is Valentine’s day.

This chocolate is a gift from me to you all!!”

Matsui then revealed that she “had been too busy that she forgotten that it was Valentine’s Day.” and she “wants to have Cheese Fondue rather than Chocolates”. Anyways, although technically Valentine’s day was over in Japan, she barely managed to touches on Valentine’s day in her blog.

Although she sings a song called “the slave of a chocolate”, she wrote that she “wishes that Valentine’s day would become a day when everyone eat Cheese. Because if it be so, everyone wouldn’t have to make chocolate themselves”.

It seems she is more interested in Cheese rather than Chocolate as Cheese in her mind is connected to an idea of happy family life.

She continued, “I would be happy if I could enjoy yummy Cheese dishes with my family.

I wish Valentine’s Day would become a day to value time to spend with family, not a day to confess your love.

Just saying 笑”
