Japanese Cute Idol - Yuko Ogura

Birth name : 小倉優子 (Ogura Yūko)
Born : November 1, 1983 (age 23)
Origin : Mobara, Chiba prefecture, Japan
Genre(s) : J-pop
Occupation(s) : Model, Singer, TV Personality

Yuko Ogura (小倉優子) (born November 1, 1983 in Mobara, Chiba prefecture) is a popular Japanese idol and model who typically aims for the cute, innocent schoolgirl look.
Ogura regularly, if not entirely seriously, claims to be one "Princess Apple-Momoka" (りんごももか姫) of the apple-shaped planet Korin (こりん星). This is apparently an in-joke dating back to her middle school days. Having an alternate name was trendy at one point, and one of her friends told her that she looked like a Momoka. She liked the name and still uses it today.
It has been suggested—notably by the Guitar Samurai, in song—that Ogura has carefully calculated and cultivated a quirky, oddball persona for herself. Ogura denies this.
Ogura is currently studying psychology at Hosei University.
