On October 6, actor Nomura Shuhei appeared on Fuji TV's variety program 'Hanamaru Daikichi & Chidori no Teppan Itadakimasu!' where he confessed that he had proposed to actress Hirose Suzu in the past.
When the program's topic shifted to proposals, the MC asked Nomura, "Rumor has it that you have proposed to Hirose Suzu-chan in the past?" He confessed, "That's true. I've done it [proposed] several times."
It seems Nomura was serious about his proposal as he revealed, "I even met her mother to ask if I could marry her [Suzu]. I also got permission from her manager."
Apparently, Hirose responded to him that she would consider marrying him if she is still unmarried around 45. Nomura stated, "I still have hope."
The two co-starred in the movie 'Chihayafuru' series. They are also friends in private.
