On June 27, the BEYOOOOONDS LIVE TOUR 2024 SPRING ~PERSOOOOONALITY "Wings of Dreams"~ concert was held in Toyosu PIT, where member Yamazaki Yuhane graduated from BEYOOOOONDS and Hello! Project.
Yamazaki initially joined Hello! Project on August 17, 2016 as a 26th generation member of Hello Pro Kenshuusei alongside five other girls, being officially introduced at the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2016 9gatsu ~SINGING!~ on September 4. On June 9, 2018, during the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2018 6gatsu ~Niji~ in Tokyo, it was announced that Yamazaki was selected alongside Maeda Kokoro and Okamura Minami to join a new Hello!

June 16, 2024 - New Hello! Project group name and new added members announced
On June 16, it was announced that the Hello! Project's new group formed with the Hello Pro Kenshuusei Unit '24 members would be named Rosy Chronicle, and that two Hello Pro Kenshuusei members would join the group: Shimakawa Hana and Soma Yume. The announcements were made in the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2024 6gatsu "Lily" in Zepp DiverCity.
The group name Rosy Chronicle (ロージークロニクル) comes from the words "Rosy" (ロージー) and "Chronicle" (クロニクル). "Rosy" means "rosy", "full of hope" and "full of happiness", and "Chronicle" means "chronicle", a history book that chronicles events year by year. Therefore, the combined name of Rosy Chronicle is derived from the hope that the history of Rosy Chronicle will be passed down from generation to generation.
The group will start activities at the Hello! Project 2024 Summer ALL OF US tour on July 13, 2024.
