There are some things you just don’t expect to see. One of those things is an idol telling you who their parents are. Today an announcement of this type was made. Was it surprising? Yep, it sure was.
Here is that announcement, from Yulian of the group XTEEN.
Her mother actually broke the announcement on her blog, telling people that her daughter’s group had release a CD on November 3rd.
So, it turns out that her mother is Kazuko Utsumi, member no. 13 from the legendary Onyanko Club. Who would have thought it.
Kazuko Utsumi is one of the girls featured on Onyanko Club’s first single セーラー服を脱がさないで [Don’t Make Me Take Off My Sailor Suit]. Here is that song for your enjoyment. This is the encore from their first concert in 1985. The lyrics are pretty racy for the time.
Here is the XTEEN for contrast.

Pick up that single mentioned by Kazuko Utsumi, if you don’t already own it.
