  1. Nice episode! I thought the part where you discussed sexualization of idols was really interesting. Its such a complicated topic.

    As a girl, I inevitably question gravure, thinking “well, at 16 I sure as heck didn’t want to be photographed in a swimsuit”. Then I wonder if idols get much say when it comes to doing gravure shoots. Speaking for only the 48 groups, I know that when management wants to promote a younger girl, they often start by doing gravure spreads. Is that the best way to start off a girl’s career? Is it what she wants? Or is she doing it because management has told her that this will put her on the path to success? Its really complicated
