Yua Mikami Facts
- A massive fan of the Japanese pop singing culture since childhood, she had always dreamed of joining one such band. At the age of 13, she had auditioned to be a part of the 8th generation of Morning Musume, a Japanese female idol group. She was, however, eliminated in the very first round.
- 3 years later, in March 2009, she had made her stage debut, as a member of the 2nd generation of another idol group SKE48. Her involvement with the band was marred by a series of setbacks though. In December 2010, she was demoted from a position in the main group to a ‘trainee’, massively hurting her career ambitions. In July 2013, she was caught in a drinking and dating scandal that had shaken up the pop industry in Japan.
- A few months earlier, in May 2013, she was involved in another controversy when she was found kissing popular Japanese actor and singer Yuya Tegoshi. The incident had caused a severe uproar among fans and the media, not least because she was allegedly drunk and staying overnight at his house. She was under the legal drinking age at that time.
- She had entered the world of the Japanese adult entertainment industry in June 2015 with the release of a video titled Princess Peach. Although she had planned for it to be a one-time affair, the video turned out to be a roaring success and became one of the highest-selling videos in its category in 2015. The unexpected response to her debut video forced her to re-think her decision and she later chose to stay on in the industry as an active performer.
- She had won the ‘Best New Actress Award’ at the DMM Adult Awards in May 2016 and the ‘Best Actress’ award at the April 2017 edition of the event.
- She has lent her voice to characters in action-adventure video games such as Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (2016) and Yakuza Kiwami 2 (2017).
