Rina Kawaei (川栄 李奈 Kawaei Rina?, born February 12, 1995 in Kanagawa Prefecture) is a member of the Japanese idol girl group AKB48. She is in Team A.[2] She is also in a group called Anrire with AKB48 members Anna Iriyama and Rena Katō; they were featured in Rino Sashihara's single "Ikujinashi Masquerade".[3]

Career[edit]

Kawaei auditioned for AKB48 and was selected to join the seventh kenkyūsei (trainee) generation (11th AKB48 generation overall) in July 2010. Her debut performance as a trainee was in November.[citation needed]

In March 2012, she was promoted to Team 4, and was transferred to Team A in August. Soon after the TV series Shiritsu Bakaleya Kōkō ended on June 30, it was announced that Kawaei would participate in its film adaptation. The movie would star several members from the groups Johnny's Jr. and AKB48.[4][5]

In 2013, during a broadcast of a special episode of the comedy show Mecha-Mecha Iketeru!, it was announced that Kawaei would perform as center in a song of the special unit BKA48. At the AKB48 general election, she placed 25th with 26,764 votes.[6] At the general election of June 2014, she placed 16th with 39,120 votes.[7]


Attack[edit]

On May 25, 2014, during an event held at the Iwate Industry Culture & Convention Center in Takizawa, Iwate, she, along with Anna Iriyama and a staff member were attacked by a 24-year-old man wielding a handsaw, who was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder. All three victims suffered wounds including bone fractures on their fingers (reportedly, Kawaei's right hand thumb and Iriyama's right hand little finger were both fractured and cut, the girls also suffered wounds to their heads), and were taken to hospital for surgery. The event, as well as all other group activities on that day, were halted.[8][9][10][11][12][13]
