"The fans' long-awaited 1st solo photobook of Morning Musume 9th generation member Fukumura Mizuki, nicknamed "Fuku-chan," has been been slated for release. The setting for the photoshoots was the south island, Guam. With Pop and Active as the themes, and as is appropriate for her first solo photobook, we packaged in the lively form of the teenage "Fuku-chan." She challenged things like basketball, which she has played since childhood, and cycling!! Then, in the ocean, she also challenged bodyboarding. Also, she transforms (!?) into a waitress, so the contents are very full. We also compiled plenty of her first solo swimsuit shots. Of course she has the gentle cuteness of a normal girl, but you will also be able to see a sexy side you wouldn't think belongs to a teenager. "Fuku-chan's" charm is packed in this jewel of a book, so don't miss it!! (Making-of DVD included)"
