Overview
Yumada Yu (real name: Yamada Yuko) is a Japanese model, actress, and singer best known from her modeling work with CanCam magazine. Yamada graduated from Okinawa Actor's School. In 1999, while working as a model for the Japanese fashion magazine CanCam under an exclusive contract, she also worked as a singer in the group y'z factory (formed with two other students of the Okinawa Actor's School) and released a total of six singles and one album, but in 2002 the group disbanded.
