Ice Creamusume (Japanese: アイスクリー娘。 Aisu Kuriimusume., Chinese: 冰淇淋少女組。 Bing Qi Lin Shao Nu Zu.) is an all-girl J-pop and Mandopop group from Taiwan. They are a part of the Japanese idol group Hello! Project which is the collective of artists under contract to Up-Front Group.
Ice Creamusume were formed from the winners of the Taiwan Hello! Project New Star Auditions, an audition aimed at recruiting new Taiwanese members to join Hello! Project in order to continue the groups expansion into Asia, similar to that of Morning Musume members Li Chun and Qian Lin. The auditions started in 2007 and the winners were announced in September 2008. Due to them being Taiwanese (speaking Chinese) and being under a Japanese group, they will sing in a mixture of Japanese and Chinese.
As the winners were announced, they proceeded to travel to Japan to undertake singing and dancing lessons and to begin recording their first mini-album, to be released in early 2009. The music video for "Lian Ai Deng Chang" was released in Taiwan on New Year's Eve.
On January 9, Ice Creamusume released their first mini-album 1st Best! in Taiwan, while it was released in Japan on January 18. The mini-album is set to cover Morning Musume's hit single "Renai Revolution 21" (恋愛レボリューション21, translated to "Love Revolution 21") under the title of Lian Ai Ge Ming 21 (戀愛革命21) and other Morning Musume songs, and also features an original track "Lian Ai Deng Chang" (戀愛登場 roughly translated to "Entering Love").
Ice Creamusume made their concert debut at the Hello Pro Award '09 ~Elder Club Sotsugyō Kinen Special~ concert, which was the concert to commemorate the Elder Club graduation, performing Debut! ~The Corner Of Love Will Bring The Best Luck~ (Japanese Version).
Four of the Ice Creamusume members (Wu Si Xuan, Zhong An Qi, Zhao Guo Rong and Qiu Cui Ling) appeared and performed at the Hello! Project concert 2009 Summer ～Hello!Champloo～ concert, performing Debut! ~The Corner Of Love Will Bring The Best Luck~ (Japanese Version) with Morning Musume's Li Chun and Qian Lin filling in for Ceng De Ping and Gu Yun.
