A date spot in front of Sakuragicho Station in Yokohama, which is crowded with couples and families on weekends. On a sunny winter weekday, the place was packed with extras and film crews. Then, a beautiful man and woman wearing heavy coats appeared. They were Takeru Sato (33) and Mao Inoue (35). Apparently, they were filming for the drama “It would have been better if I told you a million times” (TBS), which will start in January.

In this film, Sato plays Naoki, a man who lost his life in an incident and is wandering around this world as a ghost. Inoue plays the heroine Yui, who is unable to accept his death. When a detective with mediumistic abilities, played by Kenichi Matsuyama (37), is added to the mix, fate begins to take its course in this fantasy love story.

The scene they were shooting that day was probably a date scene when Naoki was still alive. The two walk happily shoulder to shoulder.

Speaking of Sato, the other day it was suddenly reported that he and Haruka Ayase (37) were getting married in a blitz. This magazine also caught Sato and Ayase returning to Tokyo together on their way home from the location of “Mother-in-law and Daughter-in-law Blues Kenga Shinnen Special” (TBS) in November 2009. At that time, Ayase was seen talking to Sato in an intimate manner, calling her “Take-chan~♡”. This led to rumors of a secret love affair between the two. However, entertainment reporter Takayuki Jyoshita said the following.

Mr. Sato just became independent from a major agency in 2009, and this is an important time for him to decide his future as an actor. Ms. Ayase, on the other hand, has a lot of income from commercials, and when it comes to marriage, it is essential that she liaises with all the relevant parties in advance. Since they are both in the leading roles, it is difficult to imagine them getting married anytime soon, let alone having a passionate affair.

Inoue, on the other hand, has been the subject of numerous rumors that he and Matsumoto Jun (39) are getting back together and getting married.

Inoue may want to get married more than Matsumoto, but Matsumoto is most aware of the fact that he is an idol among the members of Arashi, and he is also well aware of how much he is supported by his female fans. It is quite possible that they are getting back together, but when it comes to marriage, Matsumoto is currently in the middle of filming the NHK historical drama “Dousuru Ieyasu” in which he plays the main role. A “surprise marriage” in the midst of such a situation seems unlikely.

During the filming that day, there was a moment when Sato and Inoue smiled at each other while they were waiting. Inoue said that Sato “gives him a sense of security that he can be with him even if he doesn’t talk.

When Sato mentioned the filming of the movie on his YouTube channel, he said, “I can’t protect Mao without relying on this person (Matsuyama),” and repeatedly referred to Inoue by his first name, which has become a topic of discussion because of the closeness between the two.

The development of the love story in the film is very interesting, but more than that, their love story is also interesting.

Mao Inoue and Takeru Sato’s “rumored partner” could be the goal line.
