One of the biggest stories to come out this year a few weeks ago was a leak on the Matusmoto Jun Inoue Mao dating relationship. If you didn’t know, these two are dating. In fact, for those of us that have been following their story ever since they starred along side each other in Hana Yori Dango, we’ve known they’ve been together for quite a long time. At least we’ve been speculating.
There was a photo of them recently when they went out to dinner that was seen and posted by a really popular drama website that said something like ‘Oh, they’re together’ or something along those lines. They made it seem like they had just gotten caught dating for the first time and made it seem like it was a brand new development. You know, like now they are ‘officially a couple’ and it was ground-breaking news.
To me, the whole thing was slightly bogus because nobody’s representative has come out and said they are officially dating. Yea, they ate at a restaurant together, but this is one photo in a much larger pool of photos that has been circulating since their Hana Yori Dango days.
And Matsumoto Jun works for Johnny’s Entertainment. Johnny’s guys don’t get into relationships. I think there’s only been one in the history of their entertainment company that has acknowledged getting married, as far as I know anyways. I don’t think the entertainment company is going to allow one of their hottest stars to openly acknowledge that he’s off the market.
Still though, I really do hope it’s true. I hope these two are some day truly allowed to be together out in the open, if that’s what they so wish.
