Early LifeEdit

Fujimoto Miki was born on February 26, 1985 in Hokkaido, Japan. As a child, she wanted to become an enka singer due to the influence of her grandmother.

She auditioned for avex dream 2000 in 1999, singing "Depend on you" by Hamasaki Ayumi, but did not pass. The following year, in 2000, Fujimoto participated in the 3rd Morning Musume Auditions hoping to become a 4th generation member. Even though she didn't make it to the finals, Hello! Project offered her training lessons for a shot to debut one day. During her training period, she also worked as a receptionist at UP-FRONT AGENCY.

2001-2003: Solo CareerEdit

Fujimoto began her activities as an official Hello! Project member on October 1, 2001, with the premier of Shin Bishoujo Nikki. Sometime that same month, it was announced during the program that Fujimoto would officially debut as a soloist.

Fujimoto originally started out as a solo singer in 2002 in Hello! Project, becoming the first of six members to debut under Hello! Project after losing the fourth generation auditions Morning Musume audition in 2000.

In October 2002, she was placed in the one-shot unit, Gomattou, with two other prominent pop soloists under Hello! Project, Goto Maki (a former Morning Musume member), and Matsuura Aya. She was also in the Hello! Project Shuffle group Odoru 11.

On February 5, she released her single, Boogie Train ‘03.


On February 26, on her 18th birthday, she released her first album, MIKI ①. This was the end of her solo career because after a successful performance in Kohaku Uta Gassen on New Year's Eve, producer Tsunku added her to Morning Musume as a sixth generation member. With five solo singles, plus an album and solo concert tour, Fujimoto was a surprise addition into Morning Musume.

She sang many of the lead lines in Morning Musume songs, especially after Abe Natsumi's graduation.

She and fellow Morning Musume member Konno Asami were also loaned to Country Musume, a group that features "Country Girls from Hokkaido," such as Fujimoto and Konno.

In 2003, when Morning Musume was split into two groups, she was placed in Morning Musume Otome Gumi and was also placed in the shuffle group 11WATER.

Friday explained that they had a two-hour dinner together, drove to Fujimoto's apartment, then went to the sauna, returning to Shōji's apartment just after midnight. It soon became apparent that she was to be involved in a scandal that would jeopardize her position in Morning Musume. After seeing the article, UP-FRONT AGENCY had no intention to deal with the situation since there was no proof of them dating.

In the May 26 broadcast of Young Town Doyoubi (a radio show with Takahashi Ai, Fujimoto and Akashiya Sanma), she confirmed that the pictures were of her, and that she had been going out with Tomoharu Shoji. She also mentioned that she was going to talk to the head of UP-FRONT AGENCY, Yamazaki Naoki, about the situation.
