It is rumoured that her and Murakame Ume will form a duo called "YUME" (which means dreams, and is also a combination of both their names -- Yuuka & Ume). It is yet to be confirmed.

On June 23, it was confirmed that Matsumoto Yuuka and Murakami Ume will form the new DreamS duo "YUME", as their characters in the drama "Hagemasu! Yude Tamago~!" were put in a sub-unit of the same name. Icchan stated, "I wanted the viewers to feel more connected to the drama, so I decided to make the groups real, from the drama, into real-life, under DreamS and @1!". Other groups/sub-units created afterwards were Neue Green (consisting of Nakagawa Nagi and Sugiura Asuka), JupiNus (under HoshiBoshi Pro, consisting of Uehara Takeo, Shinohara Yuudai and Hidaka Ken), Dearly Stars (consisting of Suzuki Eri, Fujimoto Emi, Aisaka Minori and Akimoto Miharu) and GalaXy (consisting of Matsumoto Yuuka, Murakami Ume, Satou Miki and Takahashi Rie). It is not determined whether more sub-units will be made. They will be under the DreamS and HoshiBoshi Pro respectively.

On July 3, Matsumoto Yuuka and Murakami Ume graduated from the Kenshuusei program, and debuted with the indie single, "Nexus" (which was played as the drama's 15th episode ending).

2014

On January 11, it was announced that he, along with the members of NeXus and other DreamS and Hoshi members, will be the cast of a new DreamS anime that will take Butterfly Days: Season 2's spot when finished in February, called "Baka Nikki". It will begin airing on February 1.
