Kazama: "I decided to get married this year that I turned 30 as I enter a new chapter in my life. Moving forward, I will turn the support that she gives me into strength as the driving force to advance in my career as an actor, and as a man. Everyone, please give me your continued guidance."
Kazama joins a small club of married Johnny's talents which include Takuya Kimura, Yoshihiko Inohara, Tatsuya Yamaguchi, Noriyuki Higashiyama, and Jin Akanishi.
Kazama showed his potential as an actor in 1999's 3-nen B-gumi Kinpachi Sensei. During his Johnny's Jr. days, he together with Tomohisa Yamashita, Toma Ikuta, and Jun Hasegawa were called the "Four Tops" of Johnny's
Could it be this girl?
- 何でこのタイミングで発表？と思ったけど救命に出てたな、番宣かI was wondering why they announced it just now. Then I realized that he's in Kyumei. So it's a publicity stunt for the drama.
- 純と愛の人30歳だったのかよｗI didn't realize that this guy from Jun to Ai is 30 years old LOL
- ジャニーズ臭が強くないと結婚できるんだなSo you'll be able to get married if you don't seem "too Johnny's", huh
- 変人の演技が上手い人ですねOh, the person who's good at playing the role of a weirdo.
How rare for a Johnny's talent to get married. I've known him since his Tensai Terebi-kun days, so I do feel a sense of closeness to Kazama and Ikuta.
No matter how many years pass by, this guy will always have the image of "Kenjiro Kanesue" attached to him
So is allowing him to get married Johnny's way of apologizing for letting him play that weird role? Anyway, I've been seeing comments on Yahoo asking like, "Eh, 10 years younger than him? Girlfriend since she was 10 years old?". I wonder if there was some sort of confusion with the news earlier.
Oh, the guy from Yu-Gi-Oh
Tetsuya Takeda will probably give his comments on this one
Even though he's from Johnny's?
So he had a pretty huge age gap with Natsuna (in Jun to Ai), huh? I didn't know that since they didn't specify the age. Anyway, it's good to hear that he got married at 30 without having any trouble with Johnny's. Congrats.
His image as a voice actor is pretty strong as well thanks to Yu-Gi-Oh!
He should have been with Natsuna
There was a time when he was mixed in with this program that had all those Juniors in it, but now he's just focused on being an actor, and not an idol so it probably wasn't a problem for his agency.
Must be a shotgun marriage.
Summon, Magnet Warrior!
I will never forget his voice.
Could it be a shotgun marriage? The timing doesn't seem right......
This guy hasn't made his CD debut, right?
It's amazing that he was able to get married despite still being in Johnny's Jr.
I searched for his picture, he's really baby-faced. But he's not an ikemen.
So even Kenjiro Kanesue got married, huh
He must have it easy since his marriage won't be affecting any CD sales for him
I thought he was just around 20.
He doesn't look 30 at all.
His successful roles:
Kinpachi; Akihabara@DEEP; Soredemo, Ikiteyuku; Jun to Ai
All are weirdos LOL
Is he trying to become like Dustin Hoffman, or something?
I get the impression that he's a gold-digger.
I think Kazama himself has money though.
I want to see him acting normally, and not as a weirdo. What should I watch?
Is Shunsuke Kazama his real name?
His name is an ikemen name though
Johnny's is just crazy for forbidding their talents to get married.
Why is this guy in this "special position" within the agency?
I cried when Kenjiro's sister died.
He's the character who has left the biggest impression on me in the Kinpachi series.
He might seem plain, but it seems like he's had a pretty solid career. I think he even has more jobs now than Toma Ikuta.
Within Johnny's, this is one guy I don't dislike.
So he's 30 already? LOL, congrats!
Does Johnny's have actor-only positions? I've never seen this guy in projects other than acting. And all I get from him is good vibes since he's marrying someone 5 years his senior in this day and age.
Him and Ikuta do not need to be in Johnny's, right? They're totally just actors.
He may be from Johnny's, but he's more of an actor than an idol ever since his youth. I don't think his marriage will cause any harm towards the business.
In Johnny's, I heard that the Inocchi clan can get married if they wanted to
This guy has a very calm and intelligent air about him
Oh, so unpopular Johnny's members can get married, huh
Uekusa of Shonentai was also able to get married pretty early, though he's already divorced.
He's not part of an idol group so there's no need for him to stay single
When I search for "Kazama-kun" or "Kaza-pon" on Twitter, everyone's really in a congratulatory mood LOL
Kazama also reported his marriage ahead of time to his agency, so they were able to announce the marriage harmoniously.
He's settled down in a good position
Congratulations. He was really good as the troublemaker in Kinpachi.
This guy, Toma Ikuta, Yamapi, and another one was marketed as one set and was hyped at one point, right? I thought they were going to make their debut.
Even KimuTaku is married, I think anyone in Johnny's can get married.
I'm not sure about Ikuta, but wouldn't Kazama have been able to make his debut in a group based on his looks?
Anyway, Ikuta and Kazama made the right choice of doing things alone.
Congratulations on your marriage.
I guess I'll watch Kinpachi again after a long time
