Yuko Ogura

Name: Yuko Ogura
Chinese Name: 小仓优子
Nickname: Miss Apple
Country: Japan
Height: 162cm
Blood Type: B
Sizes: B80cm W56cm H83cm

Yuko Ogura (小倉優子) (born November 1, 1983 in Mobara, Chiba prefecture) is one of the most popular Japanese idols and models who typically aims for the cute schoolgirl look.

Ogura’s nickname is “Yukorin”. She is 162 cm tall; her three sizes are B80 W56 H83. Ogura’s blood type is B and her favorite color is pink.

Ogura regularly, if not entirely seriously, claims to be one “Princess Apple-Momoka” (りんごももか姫) of the apple-shaped planet Korin (こりん星). This is apparently an in-joke dating back to her middle school days. Having an alternate name was trendy at one point, and one of her friends told her that she looked like a Momoka. She liked the name and still uses it today.

It has been suggested—notably by the Guitar Samurai, in song—that Ogura has carefully calculated and cultivated a quirky, oddball persona for herself. Ogura denies this.
