IZ*ONE's adorable fairy, Nako Real name: Nabuki Yako “No. I’m Yabuki Nako.” “Stop calling me Nabuki Yako.” Sorry, Nako. It's just so fun to tease you. Real name: Yabuki Nako Her parents really wanted to put "ko" somewhere in her name, so after some brainstorming, they came up with "Nako". Both her big sister and little sister have "ko" in their names. Her little sister, who was born in Korea, is named Yuko. The height difference between Nako and Yuko is 18.7cm. When Nako was a kid, none of the clothes she wanted to buy fit her. When her mom said, "I hope you get taller soon." Nako said in response, "Isn't it all genetic?" But her mom is 157cm tall, and her dad is 170cm tall. Though she had lots of growing pains when she was in grade 8, Nako is 150cm tall, according to her official profile. But on 'Idol Room', her height turned out to be “149.9cm.!” Pretty much everyone rounds up their height, so let's just say she is 150cm! Nako started out as a child actor at age 4 in 2005, so she has been an entertainer for 16 years! Her first work was the film 'Touch'.
At age 7, the celebrity she shot a commercial with was Japanese figure skater Asada Mao. One of the actors that Nako worked with is Kunimura Jun, who is known for his role of the devil in the movie 'The Wailing'. But when Nako was in kindergarten, her dream job was an idol. The first idol that Nako looked up to is someone she became a fan of in grade 2 through her big sister's influence. It's AKB48's Watanabe Mayu! But the first one that Nako said, "I like this person." while watching tv one day is Sashihara Rino! Nako liked her so much she went to many of Rino's handshake events. Sashihara Rino even told Nako in person that she would definitely pass an audition, but sadly, Nako was too young to qualify for an audition at the time... When she finally became old enough to be able to audition, Nako, who was born and raised in Tokyo, went to the audition for HKT48, not AKB48! It was because Sashihara Rino had transferred from AKB48 to HKT48. So Nako moved all the way to Fukuoka with her mom and her little sister. Nako's first catchphrase after her debut was
"We are the army of ghost busters!" "We are the army of ghost busters!" But in truth, Nako is so scared of ghosts that she can't go to sleep alone. She once saw ghosts in HKT theater. She saw a baby ghost and an adult ghost at the time. She was so fearful that she would go to bed with her mom and her little sister. She doesn't bother to check her blood type Besides needles and ghosts, she is also afraid of the dark and bungee jump. And female wrestlers who look scary! To this day, she goes to bed with many dolls. When fans asked her what it's like to be Yuri's roommate, it was rumored that she said, "We sleep in each other's arms because we're short!" and fans thought it was the cutest thing ever. But what Nako actually said was, "We're too lazy to turn the lights out for bedtime!" She debuted when she was in grade 6. In AKB, she participated in a total of 31 albums, including singles, and her highest rank ever at the general election was No.9! Nako was a "stage master" who did crowd work with chants she came up with. Thanks to 9 years of learning ballet starting at the age of 3,
she was able to learn new choreos quickly and teach her peers. Nako's ballet instructor was very strict, and Nako was yelled at when she couldn't do the moves she'd learned in the previous week, which is how she became so good at learning new moves so quickly. On 'Produce 48', she went from F grade to A grade thanks to her clean moves. And when performing GFriend's 'Love Whisper', she beautifully sang the high notes. Subsequently, she was ranked high enough for a debut. But Nako's fans made a lot of efforts for Nako's debut as well. Nako's fan gallery actually gave away gifts every day to those who vote! They gave away some really nice gifts at the time. Every day, they drew winners of various gifts, including gift vouchers and "chicken airpods". Nako is loved by everyone in IZ*ONE. She is very close to every member, like family. The member she had the most difficulty making friends with was.. "Umm...none!" The member who annoys her is... "None!" But what Nako says the most to the members is... "Why?" The way she says it is so cute that all the members mimic her. Everyone in IZ*ONE loves the Nako song! Nako is adored by all of her teammates,
but she likes being called pretty more than being called cute. “I’m more pretty than cute, right?” “Yeah.” (*smiles) When Nako gets angry… “Do I become scary?” “No?” “Ahhhh….that means, no matter what I do, I’m cute.” (Nope. Not scary at all.) Nako, who is so cute, has pet animals. Birds! One of the birds is a quail named Chutchu! She once bought a quail egg at a supermarket and kept it warm at home, and it eventually hatched. Nako had a parrot named Yukio for about 9 years now. Thanks to her mom, she was able to be with Yukio when it died. And in 2019, she welcomed a new parrot as a new family member. Nako LOVES parrots. Her favorite kind is budgerigars. That's why the country she wants to visit the most is Australia, where there are budgerigars! The last thing she wants to eat before she dies is ice cream! So her favorite word is also ice cream! Nako said that she thinks she has about 100 ice creams every half year. "I want to have ice cream!" The temporary job she wants to try is working at an ice cream shop! And the commercial she wants to shoot is an ice cream commercial.
Her go-to Baskin Robbins flavors are Chocolate forest and Mint chocolate! But she apparently doesn't enjoy pineapples on pizza.. (*gasp* But it's so tasty..!!) Her favorite foods are cheese balls, cheese webfoot octopus, cheese hotdogs, cheese pork cutlets, cheese chicken galbi, and any food with cheese in it! Nako once said that Korean cheese pork cutlets taste better than the Japanese ones. But these days, the food she is really into is malatang! That's why her nickname is "Mala-buki"! "I'mma be Mala-buki." Her favorite type of cake is chocolate cake. So whenever she goes to a convenience store, she always buys ice cream, chocolate, and orange juice! Between takoyaki and okonomiyaki, she likes "Okonomiyaki. For now." Nako's way of cooking okonomiyaki is to cook the meat first. The restaurant she wants to go to when she is in Japan is Kura Sushi! It's a conveyor-belt sushi restaurant, and Nako actually couldn't eat food with wasabi in it back in the day. Can she handle it now? Nako's favorite artist group is TWICE. As a fan, she made her dream come true by saying hi to Jihyo in person. Nako's favorite movie is 'The Secret World of Arrietty'. But her favorite movie types are mystery and romantic films. Her favorite color is black,
and her favorite season is spring. Nako said that eating is more important than sleeping in the morning, but if she was given 24 hours of free time, she said she'd like to.. "Well...first of all, have tons of sleep. And when I wake up, I want to just stay in my bed." The way she relieves her stress is to cry and has lots of sleep! The first thing she does when she wakes up in the morning is to fall back asleep! Her favorite space in her dorm is the top of the bunk bed. The sport that Nako, who likes to be in bed so much, is most confident about is "None.." But if she was to become an athlete, she said she'd like to try figure-skating. But the things she is good at are tying her hair fast, making her eyes single lidded, and speaking Korean. WIZ*ONEs approve her Korean skills. "Kim Nako" is getting comfortable with Korean faster than Hitomi Sakura is. The dramas that improved Nako's Korean are 'Boys over flowers' and 'Playful kiss'. Nako got her Korean name "Na Bukhee" on Hangul Day. “Bukhee….It’s a bit….weird?” In her free time, she likes to send private messages, sing and dance, and play games! With Hyewon, she can "eat chicken" within only 2 rounds on Mobile PUBG. She is actually ranked Platinum!
But when she participated in the PUBG category of 'ISAC - Esports Edition' with her teammates, she was eliminated. In her free time, Nako sends out tons of private messages. She is happy when fans copy her. The comment she heard from her fans that made her the happiest was "We'll keep waiting". Angel Nako cries when she is touched by WIZ*ONEs. I hope we hear news about IZ*ONE's contract extension soon so that WIZ*ONEs can continue to root for Nako and make her happy. Recently, IZ*ONE released the song 'D-D-Dance!'. With a cool MV, they made WIZ*ONEs super excited. In 'La Vie en Rose', the "Nako time" was around 3 min 18 sec into the song. In 'Panorama', it was right at the intro, and in 'D-D-Dance', the "Nako time" seems to take place about 3 min 10 sec into the song! I can't wait to see her perform on stage!
