On a tropical night at the end of August, when the lingering heat was still intense, a cab pulled up in front of a low-rise apartment building standing in a quiet residential area in the heart of the city.
There were only a few households, and only foreign cars were parked in the contractor’s parking lot. This is a high-grade property that is out of reach for the average person, with prices ranging up to 400 million yen for sale and 500,000 to 600,000 yen for rent for a two-bedroom apartment.
With embassies and parks full of greenery nearby, the area is home to many elite foreigners, including executives of foreign companies and diplomats. A young man in a T-shirt and chinos with his long hair tied up behind his head arrived in front of the apartment. It was Masaki Sugata (28), wearing his favorite headphones and carrying a full set of luggage.
“Since the beginning of July, I’ve been seeing Mr. Sugata being picked up and dropped off in a black one-box car every now and then. I just read in a women’s weekly magazine that Mr. Sugata moved into his girlfriend Nana Komatsu’s (25) apartment and signed a contract for another room. It was right after an article appeared in a women’s weekly magazine that Mr. Sugata had moved into his girlfriend Nana Komatsu’s apartment and signed a contract for another room, and was enjoying dates in the apartment. I thought, “So, does Komatsu-san also live here? But actually, I’ve never seen her here before. ……” (resident of the neighborhood)
According to “Josei Seven,” Sugata, who is crazy about Komatsu and “doesn’t want to take his eyes off her,” has decided to get married. According to “Josei Seven,” Sugata, who is crazy about Komatsu because “I don’t want to let her out of my sight,” decided to get married and ended their days of living in separate rooms in the same apartment building. In fact, before the “love nest” was surrounded by the entertainment media, Sugata had quickly moved to another apartment.
“He was too quick to move out just to avoid the media. He must have been preparing for his future with Komatsu in advance. Sugata is one of the most popular and talented actors of his generation. He has four movies coming out this year alone, starting with the hit movie “I’ve Got Love Like a Bouquet,” followed by “Character,” “God of Kinema,” and “CUBE.
In fact, I’ve already finished filming the Fuji Gekku 9 drama to be aired next year, but Fuji TV really wanted to use Sugata in it, so they had to move it up to accommodate his schedule.
(Fuji TV insider) There seems to be no doubt that there was a change of heart for the 2024 superstar, who started living with Komatsu in his apartment.
The third photo is part of a video uploaded on Weibo, China’s largest SNS, in early August. According to the photographer, he encountered Sugata and Komatsu taking a walk near the apartment building where they seem to be living together. On the way, Komatsu went into a convenience store and bought two bottles of mineral water. After handing them to Sugata, he resumed his walk and said, “Sugata-san? I’m a fan,” he said, and was greeted with a smile (this magazine tried to contact the photographer, but his account had already been deleted).
(This magazine tried to contact the photographer, but his account had already been deleted.) The upgrade of their “love nest” is now complete, and the countdown to their marriage has begun. It is safe to say that the countdown to their marriage has begun.
