Ruka Matsuda Releases First Photobook 『RUKA/LUCA』

On April 27, Ruka Matsuda (松田るか) attended a handshake meeting and fan event for the release of her first photobook 『RUKA/LUCA』.

When asked about the theme of the photobook, Matsuda stated that the photos in the book have been modified very little by software. She stated that the photos appear more attractive when editing software isn’t used. The corrections in the photobook were mostly of removing any redness from the eyes that occurred due to sunlight.

The photos were taken in Cebu Island, where Matsuda stated the environment is similar to that of Okinawa, where she was born and raised. The photos cover various scenes, such as playing on the beach, making breakfast, and taking a bath.

Matsuda has been busy acting since the end of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. In 2019, she is appearing in three films were released close together: BACK STREET GIRLS (Feb 8), Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler (May 3), and Toshimaen (May 10).

Matsuda previously portrayed Asuna Karino/Poppy Pipopapo in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.
