On May 13, actress Kurokawa Mei revealed via Instagram that she has been living in Thailand since December.
Last month, Kurokawa announced the birth of her first child, a baby boy. In her latest post, she wrote, "It was my birthday! Since becoming a mom, I feel strange. Like, should we celebrate it or not? Mother's Day the other day was a bit strange too. But I wonder if I'm always a child to my mom? Or maybe not. I don't think I will know that yet until I'm a bit older. Anyways, I'm so surprised at how fast one year goes by! I need to cherish everyday."
She continued, "Because we are in this situation, I wasn't sure whether I should announce it or not, but actually, I have been living in Thailand since around December of last year. I also gave birth in Thailand."
Kurokawa explained that she had planned to return to Japan for work, but plans to wait until the pandemic settles down a bit. "I don't plan on staying in Thailand forever. Of course, I would be happy to create works again when I return. I want to continue working as long as possible," she said.
