Yoko Okino (沖野 ヨーコ Okino Yōko), which is also one of the few characters' name in the Funimation dub, is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Yoko Okino attended Kohnan High School and had a boyfriend, Akiyoshi Fujie. She began pursuing a career as an idol, which lead Akiyoshi to break up with her after being persuaded by her manager, Eiichi Yamagishi, but he never stopped loving her and wanted to get back to her. She, Ryusuke Higo, and Teiya Asuka were taught by the same teacher.
She started her idol career as a member of the quartet "Earth Ladies", along with Kaoru Kusano, Yuki Takeno, and Terumi Hoshino. The team was quite successful, but after some time they disbanded to pursue their own careers. She has remained successful and quite popular in the pop idol and acting business.
In the beginning of her solo career, she became good friend with another idol, Yuko Ikuzawa. However, at a later date, she got chosen to play a role that was supposed to go to Yuko, which sparked some animosity.
She first met Conan, Kogoro, and Ran when she asked for the detective's help in apprehending a stalker who had even penetrated her apartment, and of course Kogoro would not hesitate to take the case. But, in the apartment, they found an unknown man impaled upon a knife, turning this case into a murder investigation. Soon, however, Conan figured out that the victim had actually committed suicide. The man was her old boyfriend, who still cares for him. Sadly, due to a fatal misunderstanding, involving Fujie mistaking Yuko for her, he fell into despair and plunged himself onto a knife, making it appear as if he had been murdered by Yoko in order to take revenge on her. Luckily, Conan found out the truth before damage could be inflicted on her career.
Overcoming her grief, she has carried on her career and has remained a friend and valuable contact to Kogoro and Conan in the TV and idol industry ever since. She has also gone on to appear in several movies, such as "Kiss Note" and "Zombie Blade". She has remained close to her former band members throughout the years.
She is a modest and friendly person, whose fame hasn't got into her head, and is devoted to her friends and fans: perhaps, one of the reasons she has remained popular to this day.
Kogoro Mouri is completely infatuated with the young popstar and has all of her appearances in movies and music on tape and DVD, and has even once appeared on her cooking show. She in turn considers him, Ran, and Conan to be good friends. She often suggests Kogoro for participation in her TV shows and commercials, and often invites him, Ran, and Conan to parties and dinners. However, the latter often tend to evolve into murder cases. Before the famous Sleeping Kogoro's appearance, with his great delusion, she was a big fan of Shinichi Kudo.
