Then you saw them again in some beer advertisements. If you think about idol groups, you will definitely think of people who are cool/cute, handsome/pretty, acting in movies or dramas (usually love stories), singing in a group (usually pop songs), modeling for magazines, and being a spokesperson for some brand of products. Arashi is a group under Johnny and Associates talent agency. Apart from being the top idol group in Japan, they are also talented in other fields. Apart from being the oldest in the group, it was decided he would be the leader when he won the rock-paper-scissors game against Sakurai.When you switched on the TV, there they were again on a game show. Arashi which literally means ‘storm’, consists of 5 members who are Ohno Satoshi (大野智, born 1980), Sakurai Sho (櫻井翔, born 1982), Aiba Masaki (相葉雅紀, born 1982), Ninomiya Kazunari (二宮和也, born 1983) and Matsumoto Jun (松本潤, born 1983). Ohno has the most melodic voice in the group and is very talented in dancing.During his role as Uchi he met the actor Matsumoto Jun and they stayed friends.When Matsumoto Jun got the role of Domyouji Tsukasa on "Hana Yori Dango" he told the producers that if Shun didn't get the role of Hanazawa Rui, he himself would not play Domyouji.Shun also lent his voice to the character Seiyu on "Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa" together with his brother Ryo in 2005.In 2007 his talent gained even more attention as the leading role of Sano Izumi on the show "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e".
After a lot of effort, they started dating right before Christmas.
Shun debuted on screen when he was 13 as the bullied child in the drama "Great Teacher Onizuka" in 1998, yet he wasn't that famous until his role of Uchi in the hit-show "Gokusen" in 2002.
His real breakthrough was in 2005, though, for his role as Hanazawa Rui in "Hana Yori Dango".
In March 2008 he received a Golden Arrow award in the category "Broadcast (drama)" and at the same time he received the Japan Movie Critics Awards as "Best Actor" for the movie Shun debuted on screen when he was 13 as the bullied child in the drama "Great Teacher Onizuka" in 1998, yet he wasn't that famous until his role of Uchi in the hit-show "Gokusen" in 2002.
Matsujun will be returning to the Getsuku timeslot (Mondays at 9PM) with a new drama this coming January 2014.
