A statement from UFA was released where they announced that Okada Yui’s contract with Upfront Kansai, a branch of UFA in Kansai, would end this month.
I have to admit that I wasn’t surprised at all when I saw this since Okada hasn’t had a chance to appear in the spotlight that much after Biyuuden ended, although she still performed with other UF Kansai members and appeared in plays and TV programs.
According to what I could make out from her statement she seems to want to try to pursue a career in beauty (stylist), and without a doubt I think she will do a great job.
I wish the best of luck to Okada Yui with her future activites and hopefully her dreams of pursuing a beauty career come true.
Okada Yui’s contract will end on 6/30.
EDIT: Nouciel translated her statement:
This is Okada Yui.
I was active in Biyuuden for 3 years and 9 months, and after that I was active as Okada Yui. I learned lots of things. It was a time with lots of happiness.
At that time, the hair and make-up artists made me pretty with make-up, and I really liked that. I took a liking in doing hair and make-up, what those people do is fun. Stylists can give cute clothes for people to wear. I think it’s great that people can make others pretty and I would really like to study beauty in depth, this is what has become my conclusion/final thought.
This is a sudden announcement. Meeting everyone was something that made me really happy and proud.
I look forward to meeting you all again.
