GENERATIONS member Alan Shirahama, whose relationship with AKB48's Minami Minegishi caused a huge stir, has publicly apologized for his involvement in the widely publicized scandal.
Shirahama was present at a release event for GENERATIONS' 2nd single, "ANIMAL", at Yokohama BLITZ, which drew a crowd of around 1,500 people.
"I'm so sorry for the trouble I've caused. I will do my best from now on through several activities, so please continue to support me," he told the crowd.
Minegishi and Shirahama were involved in a scandal last week when Shunkan Bunshun published an article about and photos of the two spending the night together on January 17th. The scandal caught international attention when Minegishi shaved her head to repent for the trouble she had caused.
Shirahama was criticized by netizens when the singer's agency released a statement simply saying that what he does in his private life is for him to decide. Fans were offended that Shirahama didn't do more to show any remorse for Minegishi's situation.
