Actress Yuna Ito' s Wallpaper

Name: Ito Yuna (伊藤由奈)
Birthday: September 20, 1983
Birthplace: Los Angeles, California USA
Citizenship: American

Yuna got her break acting as Reira in the movie NANA, and released her debut single from the movie, Endless Story, which reached #2 on the Oricon, just below Nakashima Mika's Glamorous Sky single from the movie. However, Yuna's single went on to outsell Mika's. This feat put her at #20 on the top 50 singles of 2005 on the Oricon charts.

In 2005 she was voted "Best New Artist" in the Best Hit Kayousai 2005.

Pureyes, one of the A-side tracks on Yuna's 2nd single, Faith / Pureyes was featured in a Bioclen Zero CM. Her third single, Precious, is the theme song to the movie LIMIT OF LOVE Umizaru.

Yuna graduated from McKinley High School in Honolulu. Her parents own a Japanese restaurant in Kaimuki. Yuna is half-Japanese, half-Korean as her father is Japanese and her mother is Korean. She speaks English as her native language, and Japanese as a second language. She can also write fluently in kana.

An interesting bit of trivia is that her name, when written in Western form ("Yuna Ito" as opposed to "Ito Yuna") becomes the Japanese pronunciation of the English word "unite".
