I have seen plenty of members crying on stage, whether it is a concert, the Sousenkyo, or simply a regular variety show. Even member whom I thought I would never see cry (at least not in public), have burst into tears at something or another. Maybe it is simply due to immaturity. But what ever the reason, the question I'm going to ask is, will you shed tears in public for the viewers to see ? The reason can be dropping in rank in the Sousenkyo, or management leaving you out of something important or something you really wanted, even though you put in all possible effort to please them ? For me, if I were an idol, there are certain lines I won't cross, one of which is crying (especially in front of the cameras in full view of the fans and other viewers). Maintaining personal dignity and honour is the main reason . Another reason is that crying will please the haters (or anyone else) who would love to see you get hurt emotionally. On the contrary, I would simply laugh it off, make frank remarks, and continue to enjoy the once in a lifetime experience of being a pop idol . How about you guys ?
