According to a tweet from famous Japanese Pop Culture writer Takamasa Sakurai, Lin Lin and Saho Akari from Up Up Girls will form a special unit and perform in a mini-live for a Chinese girl’s Harajuku fashion show in China.
This was confirmed by the S/mileage staff account who re-tweeted the announcement:
This was a really surprising announcement since I didn’t expect to see Lin Lin perform with a UFA member again, much less with the leader of the Up Up Girls, but I’m really looking forward to seeing this performance since it seems like it will be a fun event with a unique and interesting unit.
So far there hasn’t been any other details about this special unit so it will most likely just be a temporary event to promote UFA, but I hope we get to see this mini-unit perform some more since it seems like a unique and interesting duo, although they will most likely just cover songs instead of singing a new song.
More details should be released in the next few days since the event is scheduled for the end of this month, so hopefully we get to see some pictures from Lin Lin and Saho getting ready for the event from their blogs to find out just what kind of theme they will have, but for now I am really happy to see that this unique and surprising unit was formed.
The mini live will take place on 8/27 in Harbin, China.
