Matsudaira Riko, who graduated from idol group Sakurazaka46 in March, has signed with Image Entertainment and will be resuming her activities in showbiz.
Matsudaira was selected as a second generation member of Keyakizaka46 after participating in the 'Sakamichi Joint Auditions' in 2018. She has taken part in a number of songs and have also starred in variety programs.
Soon after Keyakizaka46 became Sakurazaka46, Matsudaira announced that she would be graduating from the group after concluding all activities related to their first single "Nobody's fault." She became the first member of Sakurazaka46 to graduate.
After several months of silence, Matsudaira is ready to be in the spotlight again. In addition to acting, she plans to expand into modeling and talent work. She is already scheduled to appear on TBS's 'Sunday Japon' on November 7.
