LE SSERAFIM Sakura reveals sincere thoughts about hearing that she was a bad singer

Miyawaki Sakura, commonly known as Sakura, has been an idol in the entertainment industry for over ten years. But despite her ten years of experience as a singer and how much she has worked, the Japanese K-pop idol still faces various critics and negative comments from the audience.

Sakura confirms that “many people say she is a bad singer” and admitted that hearing these words deeply hurt her.

“When I heard that, I was really hurt,” Sakura says honestly.

The pressure to be an idol, in addition to receiving numerous comments saying she couldn’t sing, eventually led her to psychological problems to the point where she had difficulty getting into the recording booth to sing her lines.

Sakura said, “So it was really hard to get into the recording booth.”

Not only that, but the harsh comments finally made her limit the number of lines sung in LE SSERAFIM’s songs.

“I heard that all parties are divided. That’s basically what I heard. That’s when I started thinking, “I don’t want a lot of lines in a song,” Sakura said.

Fortunately, Sakura was able to face the obstacles and negative comments made of her. Despite getting emotional, she leaks with a smile that she will do anything to overcome them and work hard.
