On March 4th, the daily newspaper Sports Hochi became the first media outlet to report on a possible relationship between actress Nagasawa Masami (25) and actor Iseya Yusuke (36). Many other newspapers and tabloids have also covered the story on the 5th and printed the first reactions from the actors' respective agencies.
According to Sports Hochi, the two actors have become closer during the filming for Fuji TV special drama 'Onna Nobunaga', which is slated to finally air in April after a sudden postponement December. The filming was done last summer and therefore it's believed that they have been dating for at least half a year by now. It must be a difficult long-distance relationship for them at the moment, since Nagasawa has been staying in Taiwan for a drama project since fall. The report says that they have been calling and supporting each other frequently in order to lessen Nagasawa's anxiety while being abroad.
The first reactions from their agencies on the fifth didn't quite deny those reports. Nagasawa's agency refuses to speak on private matters on her behalf and Iseya's agency doesn't want to make any comments as long as the person in charge is staying abroad.
