"I Hu Hong will graduate from Shiko Jikan and Hello! Project on April 30, 2012.
Two years ago, I was added to Shiko Jikan. I thought it would be a breeze performing my best, but I learned that even my best wasn't enough. I always felt pressured to over exceed and to become center. I did succeed in that, but I never felt connected to the songs.
I hate to admit it, but I just feel out of place here. The fourth gen works harder and get more done than I ever had. I can't believe I'm doing this, but I think it's time that I leave.
I feel like there's just a gap between the real me and the Shiko Jikan me. It's been bothering me for awhile now that I couldn't connect to our songs. When I leave, I'll be focusing full time on my education and I plan on moving back to China. I think this will be for the best for me and Shiko Jikan.
I talked this over with Tsunku-San and Akami-San and already have a date for graduation. I hope this doesn't get you mad but I'm leaving without a ceremony. I don't think I deserve it. Tsunku-san did say however I would have a private graduation ceremony, he insisted it.
I thank you for everything and I hope you support Shiko Jikan, even in my departure.
