STU48 member Orie Cho (16) has decided to graduate from the group.
The idol made her announcement through the group's official website.
"I've tried various things and met various people and discovered what I really want to do. I want to exchange my thoughts with various people around the world, so after consulting with my staff and family, I've chosen to focus on my studies," she said.
Cho's final day with the group will be April 15.
