August, She was placed into Hello! Pro Kenshuusei by Tsunku. She was discovered through her Youtube account wherein she uploads dance covers and song covers. Sometimes she also uploads hour-long videos of her on vacation with her family, she also made her own version of Hello! Pro Time.

September 8, For her birthday, Tsunku said she would be starting her work as an indies soloist, her 1st indies single would be released on January 3, 2011.


January 3, She released her 1st indies single called "Party Time/Hajimari", already being known within Kenshuusei for her perfect Korean, Tsunku gave her "Party Time" which was in Korean and "Hajimari" which was in Japanese. Her 2nd indies single was also announced, its going to be called "Waa~hhh"

April 28, She released "Waa~hhh", and announced once again, another indies single to be released on August 10.

August 10, She released "SaranghAishiteru", which is her 3rd indies single. During a released event, Tsunku appeared and announced that Ichijo would be making an official debut soon. 

He said:

"Earlier, when I decided that she would be starting her work as an indies artist, I didn't know I was making a mistake. From her 3 indies singles, I can truly see how much she's improved, how much her voice and dance improved, how much she improved in acting as well. Thats why, I made this decision to let her debut finally."

August 23, She appeared on "Strong Heart" along with Super Junior, Choi Minsoo, Lim SooHyang and SungHoon. 

Here, she mentioned her current situation, about having to keep moving everyday from her friends houses, from motel to motel. When asked why she was "homeless" she answered: 

"I'm a really unpredictable person, its hard to tell what I'm feeling unless you're close to me. So let me take this chance to tell everyone my story. My name is Ichijo Nadeshiko, I am 17 years old, I am an only child. Both my parents passed away when I was 6 due to a fire. Rumors have been going around that I'm a 'rich girl'...It's not entirely wrong, because, I was, but not after the fire. When my parents both passed away, I truly had no idea where to go or what to do, all my stuff perished in the fire. I was homeless for about 2-3 days, my cousin recieved word about the fire, found me and brought me in. The thing is, I don't exactly remember my parent's faces, they were always both out to work which left me alone."

This left some people in the studio crying, including Super Junior's Yesung, Kyuhyun, Heechul and Sungmin.

Super Junior, along with SME, helped her out by letting her live in a dorm, and paying for anything her parents owed. She is currently happy with her current situation and is living with the 1st members of Ultra Junior. (The first 3 MVPs)


February 12, it was announced that she will be making her debut on March 30, which was also announced as a debut into the Kpop Industry with her own version of Super Junior's Opera, it will be released in both Korean and Japanese version.

February 18, Reana gave her blog to Nadeshiko since Reana already had her own website with a blog on it.

February 22, She announced that she wasn't going to be attending lessons for some days due to poor health.

March 10, it was officially announced that her solo debut has been cancelled for her to focus on North Star.
