Earlier this day, a collage is making its rounds on Facebook garnering countless comments and hate. Apparently it shows the couple Zhang Muyi and Akama Miki with the caption "A 24 year old Guy FELL IN LOVE with a 12 year old Girl". With those words, it's not surprising to see hordes of comments screaming child abuse and pedophile. Personally, I'm not against their relationship, plus this is a piece old news from 2012 and based from their weibo accounts, it's obvious they're still together anyway. Plus Ohno Satoshi's 33 years old already but I still hope to marry him or whatever (lol just kidding...XD a girl can dream)
Like I said, this was big news way back in 2012. The then 12 year old Akama Miki was mainly known as a Canadian singer-model while Zhang Muyi was a Chinese pop star. Naturally they have their share of haters and supporters. Doubts also arise with the theory that this might all be publicity stunt. The case of child abuse was also presented. Just so people can understand, having a sexual-free romantic pre-marital relationship is a prevalent case in conservative Asia. Though I still agree Miki is the youngest I know of who had gone into such kind of relationship, I'm still not thoroughly surprised with this situation. But then again, one can't just trust a 24-year-old man to control his needs. I mean, in the end he's still a guy, and with those looks I highly doubt he lacked female attention. I'm hoping he's the good, responsible type of guy.
So far so good though. They look happy and make a very cute couple. I just hope Akama Miki won't regret her early dive into serious romance.
