One afternoon, a woman in a boyish short cut and half pants was walking down the street near Shimokitazawa Station (Setagaya Ward, Tokyo), exuding an aura.
She was a black actress playing the lead role in the play “Seagull, Can You See Ginza from There? The actress was Yuna Kuroshima (26), who is playing the lead role in the play “Seagulls, Can You See Ginza from There? She seemed to have just finished the daytime performance and yawned involuntarily, perhaps because she was tired.
Kuroshima had her hair cut before the performance and changed her look to a very short style.
Kuroshima played the role of a naive girl in the morning drama “Chimdoton,” but her character is shy and very quiet. On her Instagram, she rarely takes pictures of herself, but only of landscapes and her dog. She is a little more boyish than today’s girls. She may have cut her hair this time to prepare for a role, or it may be her way of getting into the mood for the role.
The relationship with actor Hio Miyazawa Hio Miyazawa (29) is a little worrisome because of the haircut. ……
Kuroshima adopted a shelter dog each in ’18 and ’21 from a shelter. She is a big dog lover and is often seen walking her dog. She told people around her that ‘now I have someone to watch my pets with me and I feel safe in my life,’ so the relationship is probably going well.” (TV station source)
She changed her hairstyle and appeared on stage for the first time in six years. She will break new ground as an actress.
