NiziU Rio Basic Profile

Rio started dancing when she was in the second grade of elementary school, and since she was in the second grade of junior high school, she attended EXPG Studio in Nagoya (a dance school operated by LDH, which EXILE belongs to) and was active as a member of “Bannies”.

Her dance skills are so high that JYPark was unintentionally attracted to the creative dance that he performed in the Nizi Project regional preliminaries.

In fact, the creative dance that was shown at this time was not prepared in advance, it was completely ad-lib! It may be because Rio was able to do it because she had dance experience and ability!

However, during the Tokyo training camp, Rio was supposed to be depressed because she was not praised for his specialty dance, but she listened to Mr. JYPark’s words obediently, understood the essence, and with the flexibility to accept it, she was able to grow herself further. 

The number of compliments she get increases, and she is now established as a talented dancer of NiziU!

Rio is the number 1 chatter at NiziU, and when she noticed it, the time had passed, so there was no shortage of topics to talk about! Rio, who is a good listener and a good talker to the members, has a bright personality that excites the group.

In addition, she was the youngest in the family, so she was seen as the youngest by the members. However, even though she has the cuteness of being the youngest, she has the reliability to watch over the members as NiziU’s older sister!

Maya, who was born in Ishikawa Prefecture, was active as a member of the local girl group “Tiny Tony”.

When she stands on stage, she draws out her sex appeal and is highly praised for her acting and expressive performances!

Maya has a strong visual and cool impression as an elegant older sister, but unlike her image, she has a high gag line and is active in making everyone laugh when the atmosphere changes, such as mimicking.

NiziU Ayaka Basic Profile

JYPark, who met Ayaka for the first time, was known for her overwhelming visuals from the time of the audition, so much that it reminded her of “missA’s Suzy”

In the beginning, she was not praised for my singing and dancing and was encouraged to work harder than others. However, the more she practices, the more Ayaka’s ability improves, and anyone can see that she put in a lot of effort!

Now, She’s not inferior to the other members, and her skills are improving every time a song comes out! Please pay attention to Ayaka’s performance!

Ayaka, who has a mysterious charm that calms down the atmosphere, gave the impression that she presented a “slightly unusual tennis course” at the Nizi Project! 

She is called NiziU’s No. 1 star because she has captured the hearts of those around her with her unique atmosphere and character!

Ayaka, who is often called a visual member of NiziU, has a hard-working personality, but she is usually “fluffy” and sometimes shows her natural side. That part is loved by members and fans and has been established as NiziU’s healing character!

Mayuka didn’t stand out much at the beginning of the Nizi Project. At the Tokyo training camp, out of the 26th overall, they were 21st in dance and 24th in vocals.

However, at the showcase at the end of the Tokyo training camp, they showed a surprising performance with “DALLA DALLA”! He was praised for his dance, vocals, and star quality, overturning the evaluation so far, and was selected as a member for the long-awaited Korean training camp!

Mayuka smiles as if she was being praised when her friends praised her even when she was in a difficult situation. He has such a humble attitude and gentle personality that he received the highest score in the personality evaluation of the trainers and staff at the announcement of the results!

Mayuka-san has a quiet image, but she is surprisingly refreshing and is in charge of NiziU’s Tsukkomi, who bites the Kansai dialect.

NiziU Rima Basic Profile

Her father is a famous rapper, Zeebra, and her mother is a model, Miwa Nakabayashi.

When she was in junior high school, she got hooked on K-POP because of the influence of a Korean friend she met at an international school that she attended. Since 2019, she has been a JYP trainee and after about 7 months of trainee period, she faced Nizi Project.

The self-taught drums and self-made raps that were fascinated by the star rating are impressive! As you practice more and more, your proud rap as well as your vocal skills will rank up!

In addition, Rima has a strong cool image with good looks inherited from her parents, but she also has a gap with a spoiled side! She has an innocent personality that is bright and charming, such as being spoiled by other trainees!

Pay attention to Rima World, who is a mood maker of NiziU who sometimes jokes and raises the tension of the surroundings and shows a strange comedy! We are creating a new language called “Lima” because it speaks a unique language!

NiziU Miihi Basic Profile

Miihi was scouted by JYP when she went to see her favorite TWICE concert! In 2019, she became a trainee and participated in the Nizi Project after training for about 7 months.

From the beginning of the Nizi Project appearance, we could see JYPark immersed in the lingering sound of her singing ability. Her expressiveness is also well-established, and she is highly praised for having the power to make people feel good and make them laugh.

Miihi has received voice training at Tinkerbell Music School since she was in elementary school and has a history of appearing in musicals. The singing ability and expressiveness cultivated in musicals are wonderfully made into one’s own!

As the catchphrase “Smile Maker” suggests, Miihi has a cuteness that makes people smile. In fact, she is the eldest of three sisters in her family and has a strong personality. However, each gesture shows the cuteness of being a younger member!

NiziU Nina Basic Profile

The youngest member of NiziU, Nina, is half-American with an American father and a Japanese mother.

Nina has lived in America since she was little and has been active as a child actor. She moved to Japan when she was 12 years old, and in about 2 years until the Nizi Project, she became fluent in Japanese!

Since the Nizi Project regional qualifiers, she has shown her outstanding singing ability with her stable singing voice and high-pitched voice. 

Even to difficult questions, JYPark responded that she was 14 years old at the time and said, “You’re already a star”! There must be a lot of people who became fans after watching Nina’s regional preliminaries.

While she has a reputation for vocals, she received a severe evaluation for her dancing skills. Although she has talent, she dances without confidence, probably because she is not good at it. 

Even so, they didn’t give up and continued to grow as they performed on stage, and at the Korean training camp, they performed “ICY”, which was highly praised for their dance.

Now, she is active as the voice of NiziU with overwhelming singing ability as the group’s high-pitched voice and dance that is on par with the members around her.

Being the youngest in the group, she is good at being spoiled and has a friendly personality.

Miihi has the cuteness of a small animal and is featured as an idol with a rabbit face!

Mayuka is active as NiziU’s chameleon because she can handle any concept, and she is one of the members whose visuals change every time she is active! The feature is that when you laugh, your eyes become a smile!

Rio is an older member, but she has a baby face!

Mako has a sharp and cool appearance! But the owner of the gap with the nature of Group 1! She is in charge of starting group greetings for the leader of NiziU.

Maya is mature enough to be called “THE Japanese-style beauty” It can be said that she is characterized by being particularly elegant among the members!

Lastly, Riku has baby-like cheeks that make you want to poke around!
