Mizuki Fukumura, Japanese idol singer for Morning Musume

Mizuki Fukumura is one of the youngest members of the Japanese idol group Morning Musume. She is a member of the group’s 9th generation. And she is very young too. And in honor of one of my classmates whose name is Mizuki, I have decided to write about another person with the same name. You could also say that Mizuki Fukumura is a Japanese singer and not use the word idol if you want to. So who really is Muzuki Fukumura?

Popular all-girl group Morning Musume is scheduled to release their very first single as Morning Musume 14. The single is called “Egao no Kimi wa Taiyou sa / Kimi no Kawari wa Iyashinai / What is LOVE?” it will be relased on January 29, 2014. The single will come in six different versions, Limited Editions A-D and Regular Edition A and Regular Edition B. The group will start their tour, Morning Musume 14 Concert Tour Spring Evolution in March 2014. the tour will start on March 15 and they will stop at 9 different cities in Japan. It was just last month that the group’s producer TSUNKU announced that he would be changing the group’s name to Morning Musume 14 and that in 2015, the group would come to be known as Morning Musume 15, Morning Musume 16 in 2016 and so on. I really think that the group’s name should just remain as Morning Musume. That’s what the group has been known as since the beginning and that is what the fans have been accustomed to. Why does he want to keep changing the group’s name every year? That is a really odd thing to do but it is what it is.

In December 2013, it was announced that Ai Takahashi would be registering her marriage to comedian Koji Abe. That is set to take place on Valentine’s Day, a special day that is associated with love and romance. Miki Fujimoto who was one of the group’s sixth generation members from 2003-2007 also married a comedian, Tomoharu Shoji in July 2009 in Hawaii.
