These Yuka Masuda AKB48 sexy bikini photos will leave you in awe of her stunning physical beauty. In an idol industry that is dominated by cuteness and major sex appeal, AKB48 singer and bikini model Yuka Masuda shows that she can compete with the rest of these Japanese idols! Note: although I think Yuka Masuda is very sexy, there is one Japanese idol that I have written about very frequently these days. That Japanese idol is Sayaka Yamamoto of Osaka, who may be the most beautiful Japanese idol in the industry. But Yuka is very sexy herself!
Why are these Yuka Masuda AKB48 Sexy Bikini Photos Significant?
These photos are significant because they show how sexy Yuka Masuda really is! While she was a member of AKB48 and its sub-unit DiVa, Masuda showed that she has some pretty impressive abs! She also posed in Young Champion Magazine in 2011 in its 10th issue with Ayaka Umeda (ex-AKB48 and NMB48), Sayaka Akimoto and the beautiful Sae Miyazawa! I have written earlier that Yokoyama Yui may be the prettiest AKB48 member but Masuda is one sexy idol herself! Masuda had posed in Weekly Playboy Magazine as an Asian bikini model with her DiVa band mates. Just as it seemed that Masuda was going to rise to stardom, a scandal almost ruined her career.

The Yuka Masuda scandal: what happened?
In 2012, Masuda was reported to have slept over at a friend’s house. A weekly magazine alleged that she had stayed over at DA PUMP member Issa’s place of residence. AKB48 management policy prohibits these idols from having a boyfriend and even sleeping over at a male friend’s house. Masuda said that while there were things on the report that were false, she admitted that she stayed there overnight. I later wrote my perspective on the Yuka Masuda scandal. Masuda reported on November 28, 2012 on her website that she would be leaving AKB48 because of the incident.

Yuka Masuda returns to the entertainment industry: some perspective
The scandal did not end Masuda’s career. She would return to take part in DiVa’s 4th single called Discovery. The group would then change its name to DIVA before disbanding at the end of 2014. Masuda would then promote the musical called Wiz. There have been many examples of celebrities returning to the entertainment industry after an absence. Former Morning Musume member Ai Kago revealed in August 2013 that she was planning on making a comeback into the entertainment industry. She would then hold an audition to form a new group. That group would then be called Girls Beat!!
Yuka Masuda AKB48: her career
Yuka Masuda began her career in AKB48 making her debut in February 2006 as a member of its second generation. AKB48 idol Yuko Oshima who has also had success of her own would debut two months later. Yuka took part in four of the AKB48 Senbatsu Elections. She usually ranked among the top 25 which is pretty good. In the 1st Senbatsu Election won by Atsuko Maeda, Masuda finished ranked at #25. In the 2010 Senbatsu Election, she would once again finish at #25. In the 2011 Senbatsu Election Masuda did a little better coming in at #20. In the 2012 Senbatsu Election her last one, she finished at #26. Masuda released a solo single Stargazer on April 28, 2010.
