[Update] Satoshi Tsumabuki and actress Maiko are dating

It has been reported Satoshi Tsumabuki (33) and actress Maiko (29) have been in a serious relationship for the past 2 years.

The two met as costars in episode 6 of Fuji TV’s mystery drama ‘Higashino Keigo Mysteries’ broadcast in the summer of 2012. They immediately hit it off and starting dating shortly after.

Thanks Z for the tip!

Update: Negative press has caused Maiko to skip press event for film ‘Kuime’ to not ’cause inconvenience’ to the event. (via)
