This week’s issue of FRIDAY reported that 29-year-old comedian Fujimori Shingo (of the duo Oriental Radio) is confirmed to be in a serious relationship with 25-year-old TBS announcer Tanaka Minami. It seems that the two started dating this past spring, after appearing together on the TBS show “Sunday Japon.”

FRIDAY managed to get a photograph of the couple leaving Tanaka’s apartment building together at the end of October. They then headed to Fujimori’s apartment, where they spent the night. According to the magazine, the two frequently visit each other’s apartment, and Fujimori is said to have a spare key to Tanaka’s. It was also reported that Fujimori has introduced her to his family, suggesting the possibility of marriage in the future.

Rumors of the couple actually first surfaced this past May, but Fujimori and Tanaka both firmly denied it at the time. However, this time there has been no denial from either side, even though many expected Tanaka to say something about it on the most recent “Sunday Japon” (November 4th). Furthermore, both Ota Hikari and Tanaka Yuji of the comedy duo Bakusho Mondai (who serve as the hosts of “Sunday Japon”) have both stated that they knew about the relationship.
