Actress Kyoko Koizumi’s “frank talk” has been a big hit.

On April 3, ABEMA’s “7.2 New Another Window Kyoko Koizumi appeared. Under the title “The History of KYONKYON, an Unconventional Idol,” she looked back on her career.

Koizumi was a member of the 1981 audition program “Star Birth! (Nippon Television Network Corporation), confessing that he “thought it was a hassle. He seemed to have foreseen that his life in show business would be turbulent after he passed the test.

I was surprised at how quickly my life started. I thought.

He also revealed his feelings about the situation.

He continued to look back on the time when “What an Idol” became a big hit in 1985

I hated singing. Yay! I had to do it. And that was a hassle, too.

He opened up about his own life. She was not only a singer but also an actress.

I have a very strong mentality, so I was not afraid to look at things like 2chan while the drama was on the air.”

He answered simply, “I am not.

What was really interesting in Koizumi’s “uniqueness” was his comparison with Seiko Matsuda and Akina Nakamori, who represented the world of Japanese music from the Showa to Heisei eras.

Koizumi described Seiko as a “wonderful senior. Koizumi describes Seiko as a “wonderful senior” and her contemporary Akina Nakamori as

“You have a tremendous world of songs, don’t you?

He stated. He added that Matsuda’s singing voice

She has a clear voice. It’s like city pop that is pleasant to listen to.

He also praised the Nakamori was

“There was a kind of theatricality to it, like a performance…”

He recalled being overwhelmed by the power of the event.

Koizumi also felt that Seiko and Akina were “exceptional

I wasn’t a very good singer. That’s not the point. I thought I could stand up to them.

There seemed to be no sense of rivalry. He then thought of a character different from the two

I wanted to create a stylish, energetic, pop girl who could be found on the street.

He said. The following “words of wisdom” were also used in the program.

I can’t compete with Seiko Matsuda and Akina Nakamori. That’s why Kyoko Koizumi was born.

Fans were excited by this. Even on the Internet.

This is a very precious story.
I didn’t know that was possible!
People of that era went through tough competition.

The event was a great success.

Koizumi-san has chosen the jobs that have come his way since he was a member of a major production company. Even if he was offered an unbelievable amount of money, he would not accept it if he did not feel like it. On the contrary, he took seriously whatever he was interested in, no matter how big or small the job.

I think the atmosphere in this show was good, as he said, ‘Please feel free to talk as you like. Still, I didn’t expect her to be so open about her idol days.

Koizumi’s testimony also reaffirms the greatness of Seiko and Akina.

Regarding Seiko, there was the sad news of her daughter, Sayaka Kanda, in December of last year. Nevertheless, Seiko announced in April and May that she would hold dinner shows and begin a nationwide tour in June.

Seiko celebrated her 60th birthday last month. There are rumors in the industry of a commemorative concert and the release of a new song inspired by Sayaka. Despite her sadness, she is looking forward and working powerfully. That is Seiko Matsuda.

Akina, for her part, announced her hiatus in 2010 and made a surprise appearance in NHK’s “Kohaku Uta Gassen” in 2002. After that, she performed at dinner shows and other events, but disappeared from the public stage after 2005. According to an entertainment professional

Akina seems to be living quietly in an apartment in the Tokyo metropolitan area. I hear that she has enough money for fan club membership fees, royalties from her music, and a contract for a pachinko machine she released last year, so she does not seem to have any trouble making ends meet.

He said.

Last year marked the 40th anniversary of his debut, but he never made any public appearances, only releasing an analog box containing all of his singles to date in June, limited to complete pre-orders.

Fans are waiting for Akina’s return, but at the same time, they want her not to overdo it,” said a reporter for a sports newspaper.

Kyonkyon, Seiko, and Akina… It seems that each of them is leading a life of their own.
