JKT48 to star in their first Japanese CM

On April 16th, AKB48 sister group JKT48 attended a press conference for Tokiwa Pharmaceutical’s skincare product “Nameraka Honpo Bihaku Series“, as its newest CM character.

As their first time starring in a CM in Japan, member Shania Junianatha commented, “I’m excited to be able to star in a Japanese CM.” When asked about the CM shoot, Cleopatra shared, “In the CM, we all have to raise our heads together. We had a hard time doing it in unison, so we had about 50 retakes.”

Regarding the result of the CM, Melody Nurramdhani Laksani said, “It took about 50 tries, but I think it turned out really good. Through this CM, I hope more people will get to know JKT48.”

In the CM, the girls of JKT48 sing AKB48’s hit song, “Heavy Rotation“, in Indonesian. Under the blazing sun, the members innocently run across the beach, and hug the product character ‘Mochimochi-kun’. The CM will broadcast starting April 16th.

The 12 members who were present at the press conference performed an Indonesian version of “Heavy Rotation“. Although JKT48 has not made their CD debut yet, Melody strongly stated, “We will continue to do our best, and be able to have our own songs.” When asked about their debut, she responded, “If possible, within this year.”
