HKT48’s Okada Kanna has announced that she will be graduating from the group.
Announced at a recent performance, she mentioned that her reason for leaving is based on her wanting to study medicine. She will be leaving the group with her final concert being on March 22.
Studying is a big reason why many idols leave the scene, but it seems like Kanna has big plans for herself. While she might not be performing alongside the group it is a noble goal to pursue medicine, since it is well known for being amongst the hardest subjects to study.
Best of luck Kanna!
