On April 25, actress Hirose Alice updated her Twitter account announcing that she will be taking a break from her activities in showbiz.
A few days ago, it was announced that Hirose would be stepping down from her role in the stage play 'Bara to Samurai 2 -Kaizoku Joou no Kikan-' due to her poor health.
In her tweet, Hirose explained, "I am sorry for causing trouble. These past few years, I only faced forward and ran, but it seems I needed a small break. I overestimated myself thinking that my body was strong, so I would be okay if I just slept during my spare moments."
She also commented on her starring drama 'Tantei ga Hayasugiru ~Haru no Trick Gaeshi Matsuri~,' "Right now, I am getting help from many people in order to film 'Tantei ga Hayasugiru.' I will do my best until the end." She continued to express, "I apologize for causing worry and inconvenience. I can't apologize enough. I will come back recharged and healthy, so please continue to watch 'Koimaji' ['Koi Nante, Honki de Yatte Dousuruno?'] and 'Tantei ga Hayasugiru'!"
