On March 28, model Ikeda Miyu (22), also known as "Michopa," appeared on TBS's 'Sunday Japon' confirming rumors that she is dating actor Okura Shimon (28).
Previously, NEWS Post Seven reported that Michopa and Okura started dating about three years ago after working together on 'Popteen' many times. After confirming the reports, Michopa revealed that they've been together for a total of five and a half years. She explained that she had hid their relationship because she wanted to appear on television with her ability alone.
Michopa went on to deny reports that they decided to live together so that she could take care of him. "There is a misunderstanding that he is a himo-otoko [a man who financially depends on a woman]. He is the type to hate that kind of thing. So please don't misjudge him. He works too. I really feel sorry for him," she corrected.
Regarding marriage, Michopa boldly stated, "I would love to." She also shared that they've talked about getting married soon though they are not sure when. Finally, she was asked to give a brief message to her boyfriend. "I will cook [for you] once in awhile," she said shyly.
