Oguri Shun and Yamada Yu are dating!!
(Japanese online gossip source: Widegeinou/ Japanese online news source: Mainichi) First read it at Widegeinou, and then later at Mainichi so that should lend more credibility to the news. I already foresee millions of hearts breaking as I type. *flower beside laptop wilts*
Anyway the news was revealed by SpoNichi (NichiSports) yesterday, 6th May 2008. Both of them met on the set of Binbou Danshi in January this year, and after allegedly breaking up with their respective partners ( Yamada Yu broke up with Ito Hideaki, Shun with model Tanaka Miho) they started their new relationship around March, when Binbou Danshi’s broadcast ended.
Their mutual feelings started on the set of that dorama, Binbou Danshi. (Before that, the pair had collaborated as voice actors for the movie, Surf’s Up.) Actor Yahima Norito (37 years old) noted that the two actors started getting closer and closer as time went by. Around March, Oguri Shun was also said to have been shopping at Shinjuku and meeting a ‘friend’ for a date at some restaurant. An insider calls their relationship an earnest/sincere one. They are also what one calls a “Binan Bijou couple” (good-looking guy + good-looking girl).
Yamada Yuu had also watched Shun’s butai, Caligula, and the two had also spent Christmas together while filming for Binbou Danshi. (and promoting Surf’s Up, I presume!) Another insider says they had the chance to talk together on lots of personal and work issues. (rather an inane comment, but it’s there)
Anyway Yamada Yuu will also pick up surfing, Shun’s obsession, this summer. Summer lovin’~
