SKE48 member Matsui Jurina will be taking a hiatus due to poor health, according to SKE48’s official site. This has been an ongoing issue for her and she’ll halt all SKE48 and AKB48 activities while recovering, including social media and what not.

Mnet has confirmed that Matsui Jurina will be leaving the show.
