Country Girls member Inaba Manaka will be putting a halt to her activities.
The group's official website explained that the reason for Inaba's hiatus is asthma. She's had asthma since she was a child, and it has gotten worse recently. As such, Inaba will not be participating in release events for the group's single "BOOGIE WOOGIE LOVE / Koi wa Magnet / Ranrarun - Anata ni Muchu" as well as "Country Girls Live Tour 2016 Haru Natsu" and the upcoming Hello! Project concert in summer.
Furthermore, Engeki Joshibu's musical "Kizetsu Suru Hodo Aishiteru!", which was scheduled for May 28 and 29 at ABC Hall, Osaka, has been canceled. Instead, the venue will screen their earlier performance in Tokyo.
