Biography

Saitama Prefecture, Japan (2005 – present)

Kojima Haruna (小嶋陽菜), nickname “Kojiharu” (こじはる), born April 19, 1988 in Saitama Prefecture, Japan is a Japanese idol singer, model, and actress, as well as a leading member of idol group AKB48’s Team A. She is also a member of the sub-unit no3b.

In July 2005, Kojima participated in the first AKB48 audition, which she passed along with 23 other participants because the application was just taking a picture by mobile phone and e-mailing it, and she assumed she “could take a 10-times prettier one, and just sent it”.

Although she voluntarily applied for the audition and passed, she was still looking at then-AKB48 project in a suspicious way, and tried to skip the very first dancing lesson because of her then-part time job, but eventually participated it in response to the persuasion by Tomonobu Togasaki, Manager of AKB48 Theater. The group made their debut in December of the same year, and Kojima was assigned as one of the 20 members of Team A; the number later dropped down to 16 but Kojima remained as a member. In the past few years, she had made several appearances on television with the group, and had participated on the A-sides in all of the group’s singles along with her teammate Atsuko Maeda, making her one of the most visible figures in the group. Kojima made her first appearance on Kohaku Uta Gassen, an annual music show where the most successful artists of the year are invited, with AKB48 on December 31, 2007.
