On May 13th, Johnny & Associates announced through officials that Kazama Shunsuke (30), an individualized artist of the agency and known for his recent role of "Itoshi" in NHK asadora "Jun to Ai" married a woman not related to the entertainment industry and who is 35 years old. The marriage took place in early May.
According to officials, they met through an acquaintance in 2004 and they started dating since then, and after 10 years of happiness together, they got married. Johnny & Associates sent a fax to the media to announce this event.
I, Kazama Shunsuke who has been dating a non-celebrity woman, will report that in early May of this year we got married. Since this year is a milestone for me because I became a 30 year-old, I decided to get married. From now on too, I will continue to use her support and strength as a man and as an actor, because I'd like to move forward, I ask you all for your guidance in the future, thanks for your support always.
Kazama became 30 in June 17th.
In February 2012, the agency reported the marriage of Akanishi Jin and Kuroki Meisa but became a problem because Akanishi didn't let the agency know beforehand. Kazama has reported the agency in advance of course, and because of it, this has become a harmonious marriage announcement. As for Johnny's who have married with the blessing of Johnny-san we have, V6 Inohara Yoshihiko and Seto Asaka (September 2007), TOKIO Yamaguchi Tatsuya and a former model 5 years younger than him who was his girlfriend for 8 years (March 2008) and more recently, Shounentai Higashiyama Noriyuki and actress Kimura Yoshino (October 2010).
Kazama has emerged as an actor since 1999, when he appeared in "3-nen B-gumi Kinpachi Sensei" (TBS). Back when he was considered part of Johnny's Jr., he was member of a popular unit known as "FOUR TOPS" with Yamashita Tomohisa, Ikuta Toma and Hasegawa Jun.
He has worked in stage starring next to the late Fujita Makoto and directed by late Tsuka Kohei. After evaluating his performance, he decided to receive professional guidance in acting. In recent years he has worked in "Sore demo, Ikite yuku" (FujiTV), Movie "Ninkyo Helper" and "Suzuki Sensei" among others.
Waah congrats Kazama! He's like the 2nd Ikuta Toma of the agency. Also, along with Toma and Uchi, is being introduced as a Johnnys talent and not a Jr.
