IDOL HISTORY:
Pour Lui was originally a solo artist (2009-2010) before announcing her plan to form an idol group. She auditioned for members personally, alongside her manager Watanabe Junnosuke [x

She is the longest standing member of BiS, and had a large influence in the groups running. This caused her to get in several disagreements with other members, some of who left for these reasons. She wrote about her time in BiS in her August 20, 2018 book, titled ‘BiStory – WHO KILLED IDOL?’ [x]

CONTROVERSIES:
In 2017, Pour Lui took part in DiET OR DiE, previously done by BiSH’s Hug Me and Cent Chihiro Chitti. The series was filmed, promoting the popular RIZAP franchise of gyms. There were a total of 5 episodes, but only 4 are available [x] due to the content of the 5th. The video featured Pour Lui’s final weigh-in, and having not reached the target goal, on September 13, 2017, Watanabe announced that Pour Lui would be suspended from all BiS activities, including their crucial one-man live “IDOL is DEAD” at Akasaka BLITZ in October. Pour Lui could be seen visibly distressed, sat on the floor crying, hiding her face. After outrage sparked online, particularly from HuffPost, the episode was deleted and cannot be found anywhere online. [x] Pour Lui and Watanabe released a digital single, ‘BEST FRiEND’ to prove there was no bad feelings between them. Pour Lui returned to BiS on October 6, 2017.

POST BiS:
After leaving BiS, she became a YouTuber. You can find her channel ‘BYS: Brand-new YouTuber Society’ here. A lot of her videos feature past BiS members, mainly Tentenko, First Summer Uika, Hirano Nozomi, Rio Michibayashi, Koshouji Megumi, and Kamiya Saki.

As of May 2018, She joined BILLIE IDLE – joining alongside fellow ex-BiS members Hirano Nozomi and First Summer Uika.
