Matsumoto Jun [松本潤] & Inoue Mao [井上真央] Rumored - global celebrities - Soompi Forums
Something is afoot in Johnny's tightly run ship, that or he's given up trying to keep under wraps the long rumored and much eyewitness. Mao Inoue (井上 真央, Inoue Mao) (born January 9, ) is a Japanese actress. She debuted In , Mao took the lead role in the drama adaptation of the popular manga Hana Yori Dango, with Arashi member Matsumoto Jun, Shun Oguri, In February , a film was released in theaters with Mao, costarring known. Makino and Domyouji are still going strong despite scandalous rumors and dating for over 11 years!.
Many co-stars do fall in love with each other, understandably when they spend so much time with each other and presumably share passions and life concerns that few others understand. And really has no bearing on the strength of the story they were acting out.
So goes my rational mind. And partly because Domyouji and Makino hold such a place in my heart. When I first started watching K-drama and dorama about six years ago, Hana Yori Dango was my very first dorama. And you know, your first is forever special. I was traveling for work at the time and punishing schedule notwithstanding simply had to sneak episodes on my laptop late at night alone in my hotel room.
The Japanese Hana Yori Dango is superior all around — beautifully shot, sharply edited, well acted, snappily paced, and most manga-like. And I can confirm that even a re-watch several years later has something of a compelling quality about it. What fascinates me so much about Hana Yori Dango and my irrational warmth for it is how watchable and likeable it is in spite of how distasteful its ideology is.

It truly is all about the feelings. First and foremost, you have a romantic hero who is a complete jerk. Look, the guy bullies people. He bullies people into bullying other people. The only way he knows of getting his girl is to break her. Never mind his shoutiness annoying, but essentially harmless. Never mind his complete lack of emotional intelligence or manners regrettable, but not an evil as such. Never mind his propensity to mangle Japanese and then blame others which is quite amusing really, hee.

Never mind all that, the boy is a sadistic, nasty, insecure, power-sated bully. Poor little rich boy!
Matsumoto Jun Inoue Mao Are Dating? 松本 潤 井上 真央
Surely we can toss him some love? And are we seriously to believe that a woman as sensible and anti-snob as Makino would fall in love with such a loser just because he is in love with her, and a somewhat pitiful figure to boot? That kind of explains Domyouji. Why do we even put up with this? Jun and Yukie's fight also caused Jun to decline accepting the recurring role for Gokusen II and as well as Gokusen the movie. With the first Gokusen having high ratings, it was expected that the movie would go along the manga's plot.
Sadly we can never see this ending: Eikura Nana introduced her to Jun. With their supposed affair, a witness claimed that Emi was seen with Matsumoto, drinking in a Shibuya cafe at 1am, and seated quite intimately to each other  Kitagawa Keiko Actually it all started in early when a paparazzi took a photo of a kissing couple that resembles Keiko and Matsumoto.
But both parties had denied the accusations and Keiko said that it was actually an ex boyfriend and not Jun. But still inGossips are exchanged, saying that Jun is even engaged to her!
J-actress Inoue Mao Coyly Confirms Relationship with Long Rumored Boyfriend Matsumoto Jun
It was all hilarious. Of course nothing happened, not even Johnny's noticed this rumor, it's more realistic to say that these two are not even close friends in the first place. The Arashi fans waiting outside the station were making a fuss about it. They say they were flirting with each other while shopping in Daikanyama and they were walking in the love hotel district in Shibuya.
One of our staff members has seen them leaving a sushi restaurant in Tsukiji. Oh yeah, there was also this rumor that same year where Nana allegedly confronted Yukie Nakama about Jun.
I have no idea if this is either a girlfriend or just-friend's move, but it is clear that Yukie still has an effect on Jun's life, whether it's one sided love like what is mentioned earlier, or whatever Mao Inoue Hana Yori Dango first aired in and had became a phenomenon, this is also the reason why Arashi became mainstream after the past years of having poor sales.
Johnny's Entertainment must have been lax with this new development, after all, Arashi is on top of the charts with every Hana Dan theme song, and their tandem is soaring high with the ratings.
By the time Season 2 and The Movie came, the two are closer to each other than before. They are seen hanging out, laughing, and just having fun.
The film was in theaters April 22, In earlyHana Yori Dango Returns aired and was better-received than the first season. Her outstanding performance from her past dramas landed her the lead role in the drama special Hanaikusa as a maiko -turned-geisha. Comeshe played the lead role in a drama special Anmitsu Hime as a princess, followed by Anmitsu Hime 2 in the following year, where she sang the theme song with Shoko Nakagawa.
After the success of the two Hana Yori Dango dramas, a film was announced in Augustjust months after the end of the sequel. It was Inoue's first starring role in a film. It topped the box office Japan for a few consecutive weeks and became the second fastest earning film in It also became a phenomenal success, not only in Japan, but in many parts of Asia, bringing the name "10 billion yen actress" to Inoue Mao.
Mao stepped back from acting to concentrate on her studies. Right after her graduation from Meiji University in Marchshe started filming for the film adaptation of the manga Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu, in which she shared the lead with Masaki Okada ; it was released in theaters in October It started to air on April 4, Filming took place in Thailand.
