Indie idol confesses to her dark past [TRIGGERING: RAPE, SELF HARM, CHILD ABUSE/PEDO, SUICIDE]

An underaged female idol wrote a blog post recently about how she had been raped, also partook in underage drinking, smoking, money-borrowing, and compensation dating. She alleged, “I was forced into his car and then raped.”

This has caused quite a stir on the internet…

The idol in question is Miaan. On April 6th, she wrote a blog entry about what she had experienced thus far as an idol, and that blog entry has been the point of some heated discussions online about the state of the entertainment industry.

Really sad...really brave to go public over all what happened!

I facepalm everyone's investing the energy to be angry at the agency tbh... when the larger issue is her instability and dependance of her current lifestyle as a result from her experiences (outside of idol work?) and not the agency.

I don't get why you facepalm ppl getting angry at the agency.
To me, it was a shocking information after all that was revealed about her. Plus, the fact se was fired may deterior her current situation.

Because that's the real world, unfortunately. It's the same for anybody who made some careless comments on social media that's inappropriate for his/her profession and got fired. Companies want seize associations with anything that may affect the image of the company, and that's why some do background checks. Especially in a job like Japanese idol where it's all about being on media and selling your image, obviously that's how it's gonna work. Sad to say, but employers aren't responsible for the employees' personal lives.

hmm, the only comment in this post that I found...... clever. -_-;;;

It's not that I don't pity her, but what's the importance to reveal the dark past publicly just 6 months after she became an idol? I can't think anything else but to gain public sympathy.

Call me ignorance and whatever, but she's not the only one with such life stories. I know gazillions of girls with a same bad luck, but most of them don't just reveal it publicly. There's a difference between "confessing it to some certain people" and "revealing it publicly". I mean, unless she writes a book to encourage the teen generation or something, the second one is useless, really.

Read her fc2 blog post (linked on her latest ameblo entry). She explains everything. It's so disturbing, she needs help ASAP

Just some brief summary of her blog,

I think she already has some family problems since young, her parents quarrel a lot etc. So she did wrist cuts when she was in junior high school, along with smoking and drinking. she had her first boyfriend in high school, a yakuza, they were loving at first but after a quarrel she started all her bad habits again, and when asked by her senior to have sex she did it. She said its the first time she did with someone who isn't her boyfriend.

After that she went clubbing etc, had sex with the host and after that she needed money to visit clubs etc so she became a prostitute. Somewhere along all these shits her family found out and locked her up in the house, so she used her phone to find people who's willing to lend her money and she ran out of the house but end up getting raped by the person who said he will lend her money. She said she gets lonely easily so she'll have sex to feel better etc. And she will not quit smoking or drinking.

Basically about that, just a summary of her blog entry and thus some details might be left out.

Personally, I think she needs help, but seeing how her family is, I wonder how she can be saved. But it's not like I can't understand why her management fired her, she's underage and smoking and drinking, she admits to it and what can they do?
selena244 11th-Apr-2012 08:46 am (UTC)
oh and she doesn't have much friends, her classmates pretty much outcast her for some reasons. =(

"After such a shocking confession, her management agency fired her."

Clearly she`s messed up at the moment, she has taken part in illegal activities such as child prostitution, underage drinking, and smoking...wouldn`t be surprised if she has done some drugs either. Legality aside, agencies are about money and protecting their image. A poor soul like her isn`t going to be generating much profit. She doesn`t seem fit to work and do what she needs to do to get popular, it`s going to be hard for her to gain male fans since she`s talked about her rough past (and the stans she would need are the sort of creepos who view their idols as pure, cute little dolls who know little to nothing about sex), etc.

Hope she gets some help.

a_cheshire_grin 11th-Apr-2012 08:36 am (UTC)
She was brave to admit to all that! I hope she will get help and a better life soon! ;__;

And I'm side-eying her agency!!
phililen3 11th-Apr-2012 09:20 am (UTC)
They fired her?
AM SO FUCKING PISSED RIGHT NOW. When she really needs support, they fire her? I feel this great need to hurt somebody.
asth77 11th-Apr-2012 09:32 am (UTC)
I hope she will get help asap thanks to her blog entry.

Damn I can't even........This is just so sad....Poor thing....

Here's a translation of the agency's statement:

'This is a message to all those fans who have been supporting Miaan (Miwa Yuminaga).

Due to both behaviour constituting a violation of contract [[this a guess based on the phrase 'compliance related problems']] (Details: and because an issue involving an affair with a fan ('Mocchii')* has come to light, Miaan was today punished with dismissal.'

The rest is just an apology for having caused fans trouble and an announcement that all subsequent lives have been cancelled.

The Mocchi thing is from here (Google cache) - she was found to have been having an affair (there apparently is a video, but it redirects to a pay site, so whatever whatever) with a male fan, plus the fact that she volunteered evidence of having been involved in underage drinking, smoking, drug taking (all of which dealt with damned harshly in Japan, including on the idol scene).

So it pretty much looks like she was fired for the same thing any member of AKB would get axed for. Doesn't make it any less of a dick move, but there it is.

I have no words for this.

the state of the entertainment industry.

why? these things happened outside her agency.

FYI I know thesekinf of thing happen in the showbussiness, but this particular case is not related to it.

And I feel bad for her. I hope she can get help
cyberdudey 12th-Apr-2012 04:51 am (UTC)
Wa-y back she was bullied.. up until now she is being bullied...

If I heard or read here in arama that she committed suicide... I'll never wonder about that...
soapjohenshi 12th-Apr-2012 11:02 pm (UTC)
I can't believe people are surprised she was fired. Agencies fire over anything that will tarnish their reputation.

My heart really breaks for her though. It's even more sad to me because this is someone who would be in my class/social circle (in terms of age) and to know how mentally broken and abused she is. Ugh.
