I’m still impressed.
Atsuko collapsed during the rehersals due to hyperventilation.
Shortly before ‘Flying Get’, she was exhausted, she was hyperventilating again, the staff had to take her away on freaking chair, she was crying in the backstage and yet, she went on stage, thanked the fans and was able to smile.
Some of you can say “but she’s an idol, it’s her work”, but I’m still impressed. She could have not perform, she could have stay in backstage and not come out anymore.
Maybe she would take some terrifying consequences because of that? I don’t freaking know…
But I know, that now, I respect her even more.
She performed, no matter what. I’m glad it didn’t impact her actual health…
In my opinion,
Atsuko didn’t perform because she’s and idol;
she’s and idol, because she performed.
