Actor Oguri Shun (29) and actress Yamada Yu (27) announced in a fax to the media that they will get married on Wednesday, March 14, which happens to be White Day in Japan. The two have been dating since March 14 in 2008, so their wedding date will mark their 4th anniversary as a couple.
In their announcement, the two thanked the many people who have supported them up until now. “We are truly very grateful,” they said. “From now on, we will continue supporting each other and cherishing each day, and we hope to build a warm home.”
Sources say that the two were originally planning to get married on July 5 of last year (Yamada’s 27th birthday), but they decided to postpone it due to the effects of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
