Everyone’s favorite best friend finally resurfaced after years out of the business! Chieco Kawabe (22), who recently got married to TBS producer Ochi Masato (43), has switched agencies Â over to Stardust Promotion. Due to her marriage she has also changed her name to Chieko Ochi, as seen on her new blog and new agency profile. Despite her marriage and drop from record label VAP, Chieko still plans to remain active in the entertainment industry. While there is no word on whenÂ she will be returning as a singer or actress, she’s currently doing a little modeling and hosts a radio show.Â
Geez, I really miss this girl! Even though her music didn’t sell well she’s such a wonderful singer! Stardust has a nice reputation of promoting even their newest talents really well so hopefully we’ll hear something from her in the future. In the meantime, remember the good days! Can’t believe it’s been three years since her last single!
