Yesterday, the Sports Nippon newspaper got the scoop on a potential romance between Akanishi Jin (27) and Kuroki Meisa (23). The two were seen together on a date at Tokyo DisneySea on January 22, but naturally, their agencies have denied that their relationship is romantic.
Akanishi and Kuroki have been acquainted with each other for several years now. It seems that work brought them closer together last fall, and Sports Nippon claims that their friendship turned into romance at the start of this year. In addition to their Tokyo DisneySea date, the pair were also spotted at a shopping mall the day before.
Their agencies have confirmed that the two went to Tokyo DisneySea together, but asserted that they are just friends. The Sankei Sports newspaper was told that Akanishi and Kuroki were there with a group of friends.
Akanishi just released his new song “Sun Burns Down” in the U.S. on January 24, and it reached #1 on the iTunes dance charts.
