"Kamui" co-stars Kenichi, Koyuki getting intimate?
Thursday April 23, 2009 Japan




This week's issue of Josei Seven reports a possible romance between actor Kenichi Matsuyama (24) and actress Koyuki (32). The two are co-stars in the upcoming "The Legend of Kamui" movie adaptation, which hits theaters on September 19.

Earlier this month, Matsuyama and Koyuki had dinner at a sukiyaki restaurant with two of Matsuyama's friends. Afterward, they all went to the house of one friend, but Matsuyama later left with Koyuki to drive her back to her place. The Josei Seven article featured pictures of the pair in the car and walking together, and it is reported that they were seen eating together at a different restaurant back in January. According to one person involved in the filming of "The Legend of Kamui," Koyuki even made a bento for Matsuyama while on location.

Management on both sides have denied that the relationship is romantic, saying that the two are just good friends.

"Norwegian Wood" to star Matsuyama, Kikuchi
Thursday May 14, 2009 Japan




Tran Anh Hung's screen adaptation of the Haruki Murakami bestseller "Norwegian Wood" now has a cast. Kenichi Matsuyama (24) has been chosen to play the lead as the college student Toru Watanabe, while Rinko Kikuchi (28) plays his emotionally troubled lover Naoko.

The story's heroine, a lively young woman named Midori, will be played by ViVi fashion model Kiko Mizuhara (18) in her very first acting role. "Norwegian Wood" follows Toru's relationships with these two very different women, as well as his dealing with the death of a friend.

The movie starts shooting next month, though the scheduled release isn't until autumn 2010.
