NHK addresses website controversy regarding Koda Kumi's Kohaku performance outfit
On December 29, Harada Hideki, the Chief Producer of the “63rd Annual NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen”spoke to the press about the first day of rehearsals and addressed the topic of the NG that appeared on the NHK site for Koda Kumi’s performance outfit with, “[Reports] mentioned that I spoke to her agency about regulations, but I have not spoken to them at all.”
Koda spoke after rehearsals with, “I thought [the costume] was very Koda-like and cool, but perhaps it was a bit too sexy,” and revealed that her prepared costume was too sexy according to NHK. She clarified that “It emphasized my body line too much.”
However, it appears that there are discrepancies between Koda and NHK as Harada had stated, “I did not say anything. What have Koda and her people decided?” Koda also spoke with anticipation about her own performance with, “It will be great. The song is awesome.”
