Chelsea Ching (in Japanese: チェルシー・チン, legal name: Chelsea Monroe[1]), known as Chelsea in Japan, is the former leader of the Hello! Project group Coconuts Musume.


Chelsea was one of five girls chosen to form the group Coconuts Musume. Along with the other members, she flew to Japan and began recording with the group. Her outgoing and lively personality along with her strong vocals made her the leader of Coconuts Musume. She recorded two singles with them: Halation Summer / Summer Night Town (English Version) and DANCE & CHANCE. After Coconuts Musume's second single, she decided to go back to Hawaii to finish High School.

After she left, Ayaka took over the role of the leader in Coconuts Musume.

Chelsea has since graduated with Honors from the University of California Santa Barbara with a degree in Psychology and a degree in Business Economics.

While attending school, she also managed a successful career as a model and even made an appearance on a reality television show called "Meet My Folks" that aired on NBC. She was also seen in the Hoku video "How Do I Feel?" and also has done a number of print ads, runway modeling and television appearances.

She later started working as an animal doctor, and got married in 2014[2], changing her name to Chelsea Ching Monroe.
