Abe Natsumi & Yamazaki Ikusaburo to get married this year

Former Morning Musume member Abe Natsumi and actor Yamazaki Ikusaburo are said to be getting married within this year as reported in the media on 21 December. When asked about the news, their agencies both commented that this is their private matter and will leave things to them but did not deny the rumours. The couple met through the set of stage play "Arashigaoka" in July 2011 where they played a married couple and were romantically linked since August the same year after being said to have kissed multiple times during the celebration party to mark the end of their stage play. They were also caught going on a date in September 2012 with two of their friends. Despite their agencies never having admitted to them being an item, the couple had been dating for the past four years.

Abe left Morning Musume in January 2004 after she joined the group as its first generation members in 1997 and became a solo singer and actress after that. With her impending marriage, all 5 members from the first generation of MM are attached. As for Yamazaki, he is a regular in many musicals and stage plays and was recently seen in the TBS Autumn 2015 drama "Shitamachi Rocket".

Coincidentally, Yamamoto Koji and Horikita Maki who got married this year also acted in the same play during May 2015 although Yamamoto played the lover of the married heroine, not the husband.
