Fukuyama Masaharu (Nagasaki Prefecture, 1969- )

Fukuyama 'Masha' Masaharu was born in Nagasaki and had a reputation as a prankster in his youth. He got his nickname seemingly because his father has trouble with his teeth and couldn't say his name properly. He came to Tokyo straight out of high school and auditioned for the Amuse film company. But his first few were spent trying to build a career as a musician. He made his less than sparkling live debut in August of 1989 - no-one turned up. His debut single, released in 1990 didn't fare much better. But a later single from his debut album Message was used in a Victor TV commercial and he had his break. Weekly broadcasts on the famous All Night Nippon radio show made him a rare DJ/actor combination and also did wonders for his popularity.

He appeared in his first TV drama in 1991, (Because There is Tomorrow) with popular actress Imai Miki. In 1993, the drama Hitotsu Yane no Shita (Under One Roof) was a smash and made a star of Fukuyama. He was chosen that summer as 'best jeanist', a bizarre title that gets a lot of publicity, and he had his first million-selling album Calling. He has since starred in several successful TV series, such as Hitotsu Yane no Shita 2 and Meguriai (Chance Encounter) with actress Tokiwa Takako, for which he has often recorded the title tune. He was sent by TV Asahi as a photographer for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. In polls of the most popular male performers, Fukuyama is perennially chosen 2nd behind SMAP member Kimura Takuya. In two separate surveys in 2006, he was chosen as the musician most people would want to perform at their wedding and as the ideal marriage partner.

Fukuyama was already a well-established star by the time he landed his first movie starring role. He played a genius phsyicist in Yogisha X no Kenshin (2008), the big screen adaptation of the 2007 Fuji TV drama series Galileo (photo) in which he co-starred with actress and singer Shibasaki Koh. Fukuyama wrote, composed and produced the movie's ballad theme, "Saiai," which was sung by Koh. The hit TV series was adapted from a series of novels by Higashino Keigo, many of which were nominated for major awards, while the movie was based on the novel that finally won Higashino the Naoki Prize.

No personal life or anything. At the moment; reportedly single. Though few years back he said he wanted to get marry before 40, ano, Fukuyama-san, that's in four months. LOL.

But millions of hearts will break if he did get marry, mine included.

Info a bit thin on the ground....
His hobbies are biking and photography. In 2000, he was sent to Sydney to cover the Olympic Games by TV Asahi as a photographer. He also has a late-night Saturday radio show, Allnight Nippon. This versatile actor/singer has also appeared in numerous advertisements for companies such as Panasonic, Suzuki, Suntory, Fujifilm, Xylish, Kewpie, and Pocari Sweat. He celebrated his 15 years in showbiz anniversary with a series of concerts.

Fukuyama, who was once a self-proclaimed heavy-smoker, has now quit smoking. The quality of his voice has shown marked improvement since, which resulted in positive feedback from fans.

I LOVE HIM!!!!!
he's like wine..just keep on getting better and better.
I love his song Niji for Water Boys.
and i think he's not a "idol" typical artist. that's why he doesn't has too much publication about his personal life. But I think I've seen him chosen as the most wanted man in a Japanese polling.

I think that he's handsome and i heard that he's a great singer as well.

i cannot say that he's better than takuya. They have a different aura and talent. I will always be a TAKUYA KIMURA fan.

so thats it..
