Mizuki Fukumura, band leader for Morning Musume 17 has been named the first ever sub-leader for the Hello! Project label of artists. I just found out about this news when I was searching for more updates about Mizuki. The news was announced at an event called Hello! Project Countdown Party 2016 Good Bye and Hello! This is a special concert that is held every year to countdown to the new year. The concert was held on December 31, 2016 at the Nakano Sun Plaza.
Fukumura released a photo book called MIZUKI back in 2013. She has since released two other photo books including Kagayaki.
