Sasaki Nozomi shuts down questions about Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari



On September 21st, model/ actress Sasaki Nozomi (23) attended a press conference for PHS telecommunications company, “WILLCOM”.

As the image character for this company, she’ll be featured in their new CM along with mangaka and talento Ebisu Yoshikazu (63). Commenting on his co-star, Ebisu stated, “Among the many people I’ve met before, she’s the prettiest girl I have ever seen.” Charmingly, he looked embarrassed by his own comment.

Sasaki returned the compliments with her own, saying, “Just like my first impression, Ebisu-san is a sociable and kind person.”

This is her first press event ever since dating rumors connecting Sasaki to Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari (28) surfaced back in May. The reporters couldn’t help but ask, “Do you call that person in the idol group?” She replied coldly, “No. No, I don’t.” Although her facial expression at this time was very stiff, reporters continued, “Is your relationship doing well?”. Sasaki gave no response to the question.

sounds like they broke up already...so much for Johnny's relationships. They never last.

Yeah, that was my first thought too. But then again, I'd be pissed off too, if my private life were exploited for tabloid fodder, so who knows.
milla_kun 22nd-Sep-2011 03:49 pm (UTC)
look? deal with it ppl.. Nino is married with Ohno!

I'd ship this couple!

Hmm...

Now I want a NinoxYuriko dating rumors. LOL!
jell_o_jello 22nd-Sep-2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
Yes to this. But I think she's dating Ikuta Toma now, or so the tabloid says :(
koutaishi 22nd-Sep-2011 04:07 pm (UTC)
I like Nino but she's way too pretty for him.

Poor girl... getting hounded with questions from reporters. It's hard dating a Johnny idol >_>

I wonder if the boys get into relationships thinking that it'll last? I mean, they're not even allowed to announce their relationship publicly until they're 30. That must suck a lot, especially for the girls because even if they want to get married, it's almost impossible with Johnny idols...

Whatever it is, I see Sasaki Nozomi and Emi Suzuki hanging out together last month. Didn't know they were close friends... what a small world indeed.
haruno21 22nd-Sep-2011 04:27 pm (UTC)
she is smarter than him to answer, if you ask me

Maybe if ppl think they broke up they would finally leave them alone

I wish the Japanese industry will be more "open minded" bout relationships issue like the Hollywood :(
aprillis 22nd-Sep-2011 04:43 pm (UTC)
But the Hollywood couples have zero privacy.

A nice balance between the open-mindedness of the Hollywood industry + respect of privacy like the Japanese industry would be ideal though :)

Is this Arashi-relationship-rumor week? =/

We had Jun, now Nino, and most recently Sho (though Sho's one is just too lame to be considered a dating rumor)

Still waiting for Aiba and Ohno's rumors plzthx
georgiaannaa 22nd-Sep-2011 05:07 pm (UTC)
Sho?
arashic5 22nd-Sep-2011 05:00 pm (UTC)
Its really too bad that their relationship got outed so quickly. She's just starting her career,and having a relationship with one of japan's most beloved idol group member is not helping. Yeah she'll get the limelight, but I dont think it'll do her good,she'll always be known as nino's rumored gf.

I'd prob like her if not for my avid ninoxmasami shipping T^T
ohprecioustime 22nd-Sep-2011 05:31 pm (UTC)
she hasn't just started her career though
georgiaannaa 22nd-Sep-2011 05:19 pm (UTC)
But I just started to like Nozomi!!! T_T
risakoisabel 22nd-Sep-2011 05:21 pm (UTC)
I dont know why but I LIKE HER. Is it just me or does anyone get the feeling that she's not the girl most people stereotype as "dumb".
I pity her... being hounded not only by the press but Nino's fans as well. If they're happy together why break them up? Just saying what's on my mind...
ohprecioustime 22nd-Sep-2011 05:21 pm (UTC)
Nozomi is so pretty,a bad singer and a meh actress
but still really gorgeous

I hope they are successful,no matter the look difference
aoi_shiroyama 22nd-Sep-2011 05:32 pm (UTC)
People what's up with that picture?! Is her neck really that long? I should get more sleep @___@
maybecannotbe 22nd-Sep-2011 05:49 pm (UTC)

I only realized it after reading your comment
nekobot01 22nd-Sep-2011 05:43 pm (UTC)
How true are any dating rumors? Like 50/50, depending on whether or not there is a product also being promoted?

Guys who want to be idols have to understand what they are getting into and that private life is to be strictly private. If they didn't like it, they would leave. Not to be glib but there are quite a few jobs where having a spouse/significant other/family is REALLY difficult... if it's your calling, though, you make it work.

In short, POCKY!

matsuneko_girl Re: All I care about 8D22nd-Sep-2011 07:45 pm (UTC)
Omg the song is so annoying!XD But despite that I can see why Nino has the hots for her. I'm straight but when she looks straight at you in this video my heart can't help but go kyuun!~ I wish I had that power too!
eyeslikefirefly 22nd-Sep-2011 08:52 pm (UTC)
Her neck looks reallllly weird in this photo... I don't know if it's the blue background or if her neck really is that tiny. >>;
gorgeous_filth 22nd-Sep-2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
all these comments about her long neck are making me think about ET... gross.
aoi_shiroyama 22nd-Sep-2011 10:55 pm (UTC)
It kinda looks like ET though, don't you think? :D
botanbutton 23rd-Sep-2011 02:32 am (UTC)
*yawn* Leave these adults alone, lol.
buyme_arashi 23rd-Sep-2011 03:26 am (UTC)
love all of you who are very supportive of my baby love life ♥
shunluv 23rd-Sep-2011 02:32 pm (UTC)
although i ship Nino&Yuriko more and actually like NinoMasami as couple but i think NinoZomi is really cute as well and really hope they could make this work despite the media and over jealous fans getting in the way :P
as long as they happy as a fan i would happy for them...
miyamoto_yukio 23rd-Sep-2011 06:28 pm (UTC)
GOSH! Stop harassing her, annoying reporters! :|
