WARNING: There's a lot of info to read so sit down, it may take a while. lol.

In case you didn't already know...

- Jun is very shy when it comes to romance and girls. He's not good at expressing his emotions to them

- Many people say that Jun is so dedicated to his acting that he stays in character for the duration of the filming even during the variety shows.

- He is very devoted to Arashi, and has been quoted by one of the bandmates as "if Arashi was in a building and it collapsed, Matsujun would be the one holding up the pillars so the other members can escape!"

- Jun is a victim of what is despised by all of us: myopia! He wears contact lens while working so he'll look good, but outside work he is frequently seen in spectacles.

- Unless he initiates it, Jun is not comfortable with other people touching him.

- Jun is not a very friendly person...he won't approach a person unless the person makes the first move. He keeps to the people he knows well.

- He likes to cross his legs while sitting.

- Because many Arashi fans were lured into Arashi by Jun (usually Gokusen, Hanadan or KWP), fans have nicknamed it the 'jun-bait'.
(<--LOL..i love this pic.)

- Aoki Kotomi, the author of the manga 'Boku wa Imouto ni koi o Suru', confessed to being so excited that she nearly fainted when she found out that Jun was chosen to play the lead role of the twin brother, Yori.

- Jun seems to have this anime/manga thing going on in his screenwork!

- His personal time is from 12am - 3am.

- He is good in football.

- He likes dry plums so much that he snatches them away from Aiba.

- He is never able to sleep whenever he room with Aiba or Nino, because Aiba grinds his teeth and Nino howls in the middle of the night.

- Jun is very emotional and can cry while watching a movie. However, he doesn't like to cry and feels very embarrassed if he does so in front of others.

- Once he almost got blown away while holding a flag.

- His best friend in Arashi is Aiba.

- Jun is the first Japanese male to make it to the cover of the Japanese Marie Claire magazine. The only guys to grace the cover in its 24-year history has been foreign superstars including David Beckham.

* Jun didn't go through an audition to get into Johnny Jrs. Although the usual process is that the boys will have to go through auditions, Jun got a personal call by Johnny himself, to come and watch the auditions. After that, he just got in without knowing it.

- When he was in second grade, he ran out onto the road and was knocked over by a van. Little Jun was severely injured, but he was as chirpy and cheerful as he could be. When the ambulance arrived, he kept apologising to the uncle, saying he was naughty for running out onto the road. (info from arashi.vox.com)

- Jun is very picky about movie/drama scripts, and will only act the roles that interest him.

- Jun is something of a fashion guru...he is known as the most stylish dresser in Arashi.

- He didn't like the HYD curls as much as any of us because of the fashion problems it posed him. When he was on set, it was fine because he had costumes, but once he was out of the set, he couldn't find anything in his wardrobe to compliment his curly hairstyle.

- Little Jun used to idolise Sho.

- If you like Oguri Shun (Hanazawa Rui and Uchi), hear this: Shun got the role as Rui because Jun told the producers that if they didn't give Shun the role, he wouldn't act as Domyouji. In real life, Jun and Shun are good friends, all the way from the Gokusen days.

- Jun used to have a room so messy that sometimes when he slept, he would jerk awake when clothes fell onto his face. Now, though, he has a sort of clothesline above his bed, and he just reaches up and grabs clothes that he wants to wear, saying that it's a lot more convenient.

- Jun's ideal summer activity is to drive to the beach and play with a dog...even though he doesn't have a dog.

- He worries quite a fair bit about Arashi and how the public will respond to them, especially overseas fans.

- One of the reasons why Jun took on the role of Domyouji Tsukasa was so that Arashi could release a new single, 'WISH'.

- Jun would prefer to go dutch on dates.

- He doesn't like kids, but he wants them...in the future!

- Jun finds Mandarin extremely difficult. No matter how much he tries to memorize the words, he always forgets them easily.

- Surfing is one of Jun's hobbies. His so-called 'mentor' is Yamaguchi Tatsuya of TOKIO.

- Sato Atsuhiro is a very respected senpai of Jun's. He feels that they are 'fated' to be friends because they share the same birthday and hobbies.

- Towards the end of filming HYD 1, Jun returned to the set in a sweater and spectacles to give Inoue Mao flowers at her last scene even though his own part had ended earlier than hers.

More facts:

*His favorite word is “Enjoy”.
*Once crashed Aiba’s car after driving a few meters..
*He likes his drinks warm (at room temperature) because his stomach isn’t strong.

*Doesn’t remember anything after a hangover.
*He played baseball in grade school.
*He can’t do a back flip (all Johnny’s boys are suppose to be able to).
*He admits he’s neurotic - he likes to clean and can’t stand anything messy or dirty.
*He’s very honest and has a sharp tongue.
*Recently got a wine cellar in his house.
*Loves wine. A LOT.
*Hideaki Takizawa (of Tackey and Tsubasa) is his good friend. For Hideaki’s birthday a couple of years ago, Jun brought him a balloon and a cake at midnight.
*After acting in the popular J-drama Kimi Wa Petto (You’re My Pet), he was voted as the best celebrity you want as your pet.
*During one scene in Hana Yori Dango, he had to put a bandage on his face but due to his small face, he had to cut it to make it look proportional to his face.
*Oguri Shun and Narimiya Hiroki are his good friends.
*He loves exercise ball.
*He has pet turtles (5 of them). They were given by Nino (Arashi bandmate) on his 17th birthday and he still hasn’t named them. He gave one back to him on Nino’s 21th birthday.
*He accidentally kissed Nino at a concert (23/July/2006), but Nino meant to do it.
*Earned the nickname Do-S Banchou (S stands for Sadist).
*Chief attractions in girls are eyes and hair.

*A choreographer once made him cry.
*He isn’t known to be punctual.
*Finds Mandarin extremely hard to learn.
*Went on a holiday in Los Angeles in summer ‘07 with a friend. He recalled that he once said to an American girl, “I don’t speak English.”
*During an episode of Music Station, he was seen staring intently at Utada Hikaru beside him. In fact, Jun-kun and Hikki-chan were challenging each other to pick their nose in front of the camera. Hikki-chan didn’t, but Jun did at the end of the show when he was answering Tamori’s question!
*Loves attention.
*Has a rack of clothes above his bed, as it’s ‘convenient’ to grab something instead of searching through his wardrobe
*Matsujun lives in the Ikebukuro district of Tokyo - although his family’s well-off. Ikebukuro happens to be one of the famed “ghetto” areas of Tokyo
*He wears a t-shirt and black boxer shorts when he goes to sleep. He loves to go to sleep but hates waking up in the morning

Well, wow, that was a lot of info to read on him, lol. It's funny how a lot of actors/musician are shy in real life, but what they potray on tv and performing is tototally different, but I guess it's all about being a different person in acting and music and you really don't have to be yourself to do it. I mean in music you are yourself, but you know how some play out stories in their video or when they on stage, they do something to represent their song, t hat kind of acting.
