Murakami Megumi’s Profile


Murakami Megumi was one of the fifteen girls to pass the Hello! Project Kids auditions in 2002. She became a member of °C-ute in 2005 with seven other H!P Kids after not being chosen to form the group Berryz Kobo in 2004. She was a member of ZYX in 2003 and was featured in Goto Maki’s Yokohama Shinkirou PV. She was also one of the only two Hello! Project Kids featured in the 2005 summer shuffles in the group Sexy Otonajan with ex-Morning Musume member Fuiimoto Miki and Berryz Kobo member Miyabi Natsuyaki.

Amateur photographies of Megumi holding hands with a supposed boyfriend in the street appeared on the internet. Later on October 31st 2006 she retired from °C-ute and Hello! Project. Although the official reason stated was because she wanted to return to an ordinary school life, it is believed that she left because she was afraid of these people (who were taking pictures of her and stalking her) following her. Some fans beleive that H!P fired her becuase it is aganst H!P contracts to date boys.

In 2011, she returned to show business by signing to WANTS, a dance agency.
