Oguri Shun

[Edit]
Overview
Shun Oguri (小栗旬, Oguri Shun) is a Japanese actor. He attented Myojo Gakuen High School in Mitaka, Tokyo but quit early to pursue his acting career. He made his acting debut at the age of 16 in the television drama GTO
Shun debuted on the small screen when he was 13. He started gaining some attention with his role of 'Uchiyama Haruhiko' aka "Uchi" in the hit drama Gokusen back in 2002, but it wasn't until 2005 that he had his breakthrough role as 'Hanazawa Rui' in the hugely popular drama Hana Yori Dango and he rose to prominence...he gained even more attention with his role as 'Sano Izumi' in Hanazakari no Kimitachi e in 2007. He also had his first major leading role as the smart young detective 'Kudo Shinichi' in the Detective Conan live actions...although his actual debut leading role was in Hitsuji no Uta back in 2002.
Apart from being a talented actor, he is also a seiyu (basic japanese term for 'voice actor') and has provided voice overs for animations. He has also starred in several stage plays with the help of his theatrical roots. He is also a dj.

Shun made his way into the acting industry because he was an avid admirer of Yuki Uchida, a popular Japanese idol in the 1990s. He wished to meet her, and he joined theater and acting classes to do so. He admits he didn't really like theater or the acting classes, but somehow, his ambition to meet his idol -- and the pretty girls in his class -- kept on driving him. Now, Shun says acting is his life and wouldn't want it any other way.
