One night in June, when the archipelago was screaming in the record-breaking heat wave. A darkly dressed woman in a black one-piece dress and a black cap was pushing her way through a residential area. Her eyes peeking out from between the cap and mask were large and slightly moist. She was a woman of considerable beauty. She stopped in front of a cozy apartment, looked around with lovely eyes, took out a key from her bag, and entered the room (see photo).
A few moments later, a short-cut beauty appeared, this time wearing a knit bucket hat, round glasses, and a T-shirt with a bright oil painting of a flower printed on it. She entered the room with a heavy plastic bag, probably containing hors d’oeuvres.
This was not the start of a girls’ night out. It is here that the “Queen of Evil” and the “Hero of Evil” compete night after night.
The “dark beauty” is Yui Asakura (26), who plays the role of Aguilera, the queen of the devil-worshipping Deadman’s group in “Kamen Rider Revise” (TV Asahi). The “beauty in the hat” is not a woman, but Sekoguchi Ryo (25), who played Stacy, the son of an executive of the evil dynasty Tojitendo in “Kikai Sentai ZENKAIJAR” also broadcast on TV Asahi.
Asakura is a former idol. His appearance in Masked Rider created a big buzz, ‘Lady Aguilera is too cute! She was a big hit with the public. She also took the gravure world by storm with her outstanding style.’ AWARD” in 2009. Sekoguchi, on the other hand, is also a popular star whose good looks are so good that she could easily be mistaken for a woman. She released her first photo book in April of this year.
The two “too-beautiful villains” have been working together beyond the framework of the TV program, and are now working on a new project called “GRACIAS! They are also appearing together in a book about villains titled “GRACIAS! A person involved in special effects said, “It is said that they began their love affair last fall.
Indeed, as far as FRIDAY could see, they were co-starring in private at least three times a week. It would be fair to say that they live together half the time. We directly interviewed Sekoguchi.
–You are dating Asakura-san, aren’t you?
No, we are not dating!
–I saw Asakura-san visiting Sekoguchi-san’s house several times.
I don’t have much time, so I’ll see you later.”
–You have visited him at his home, haven’t you?
I’m very close with my family. We knew each other before I entered the business.
Their agency, LIBERA, did not deny the sleepover, but responded, “We are not dating.
We are not dating. We are good friends who usually discuss common activities and problems. There was a malicious stalker case at Asakura’s home, and she was having difficulty returning home, so Sekoguchi was consulting with her.”
If that is the case, he should have stayed at a hotel rather than staying at Sekoguchi’s house, which seems to be a one-room apartment with a rent of about 100,000 yen. …… What was more interesting was that another beautiful woman visited Asakura’s room while he was on location in the countryside.
She said, “I didn’t stay over. My family is in and out (of my house) too,” Sekoguchi denied.
Sekoguchi denied it, but would Lady Aguilera forgive him? The evil queen would never forgive him.
