The members were revealed during a livestream where they were introduced by Morning Musume and Hello! Project leader Fukumura Mizuki. Homare, Rio, and Mei will be starting their activities with Morning Musume ’19 in the fall.

Morning Musume are among the most recognizable idol groups in the industry, so a new generation is always a big event to look forward to. Needless to say, when they announced the LOVE auditions, the hype was real.

The long wait is finally over and we’re glad to see that we get 3 new members in the lineup. From what I can tell, they seem like great additions and have some great potential. Yamazaki Mei has some exposure to the idol world already, Okamura Homare has an Abe Natsumi look, and Kitagawa Rio is already giving off some strong ace vibes.

We don’t know much else about the new members, but there is one thing for sure: Yamazaki Mei is super excited to be part of the group.
