This is Okada Yui.

I was active in Biyuuden for 3 years and 9 months, and after that I was active as Okada Yui. I learned lots of things. It was a time with lots of happiness.

At that time, the hair and make-up artists made me pretty with make-up, and I really liked that. I took a liking in doing hair and make-up, what those people do is fun. Stylists can give cute clothes for people to wear. I think it’s great that people can make others pretty and I would really like to study beauty in depth, this is what has become my conclusion/final thought.

This is a sudden announcement. Meeting everyone was something that made me really happy and proud.

I look forward to meeting you all again.

For those of you who don’t know, Okada Yui is a graduate from Hello!Project and made her debut as part of the 3-unit group v-u-den until it disbanded on June 29, 2008. After her graduation, she mostly appeared on TV as a talent.

I’ve been a H!P fan for almost a year now and it was just a few months ago that I started to notice her. Okada is very pretty and was loads of fun to watch on Hello!Morning. I wish Yui the best of luck to her future goals.
