History[edit | edit source]
Ice Creamusume was formed from the winners of the Taiwan Hello! Project NEW STAR Audition, an audition aimed at recruiting new Taiwanese members to join Hello! Project in order to continue its expansion into Asia. This was similar to the recruitment of Chinese Morning Musume members Junjun and Linlin. The auditions started in May 2008 and the winners were announced in September 2008.
Due to the girls being Taiwanese (speaking Chinese) and being a group based in Japan, they sang in a mixture of Japanese and Chinese.
2008[edit | edit source]
After the winners were announced, in November they traveled to Japan to undertake singing and dancing lessons and began recording their first mini-album. The music video for "Liàn Ài Dēngchǎng" (戀愛登場; Love Debut), the first track on the album, was released in Taiwan on New Year's Eve.
2009[edit | edit source]
On January 9, Ice Creamusume released their first mini-album 1st Zuì Bàng! in Taiwan, while it was released in Japan on January 31. It contained Morning Musume's hit single "Ren'ai Revolution 21" (恋愛レボリューション21; Love Revolution 21) under the title of "Liàn Ài Gémìng 21" (戀愛革命21) and other Morning Musume songs. There was only one original track on the album — "Liàn Ài Dēngchǎng."
Ice Creamusume made their concert debut at the Hello! Project 2009 Winter Kettei! Hello☆Pro Award '09 ~Elder Club Sotsugyou Kinen Special~, performing a Japanese version of "Liàn Ài Dēngchǎng" called "Debut! ~Koisuru Kado ni wa Fuku Kitaru~."
Four of the Ice Creamusume members (Shenshen, Anchii, Youko and Reirei) appeared and performed at the Hello! Project 2009 SUMMER Kakumei Gannen ~Hello! Chanpuru~, performing "Debut! ~Koisuru Kado ni wa Fuku Kitaru~" with Morning Musume's Junjun and Linlin filling in for Peipei and Guu-chan.
Ice Creamusume became inactive in late 2009, and were removed from the official Hello! Project website without explanation in November 2010.
