Mizobata Junpei caught on a date with Katase Nana
Katase Nana (31) and Mizobata Junpei (24) have been caught on an izakaya date by 'Josei Seven'. The tabloid published a few shots of them together in the 8th August issue out today.
The popular pub they were in serves casual fare and has a cosy atmosphere. It is frequented by regular customers. "Most of the customers know each other so everyone was having a good time drinking but the two of them only had eyes for each other. And when they talked, they whispered to each other. Both of them were good lookers so everyone was wondering who they were," remarked a regular customer. The two of them split the bill after their meal and left in Katase's car, with her driving.
Katase and Mizobata got to know each other while filming for the drama '35-sai no Koukousei'. A staff member recalled their relationship during filming.
"Katase-san is the refreshing older-sister type. She got along well with Mizobata-kun who has an older sister. Katase-san loves soccer and the outdoors and lately has been into barbecuing too. Mizobata-kun has been heard saying how cool she was, being so active."
This is actually not the first time Josei Seven has caught them together. In mid-June, they were seen shopping together at Don Quijote. About 10 days later, they were caught again shopping at Isetan.
"I noticed a tall and beautiful woman and realized it was Katase-san. She was peering into the changing room and talking to someone. I was surprised to see it was Mizobata-kun!" said an onlooker.
Contacted for comment, Mizobata's talent agency Ever Green Entertainment stated,"She is one of the actors he works with in the drama, and they have a good senpai-kouhai relationship. He sought her out for advice regarding work."
Katase's agency, Ken-On stated,"We were told that he is one of her close friends."
Katase had also been spotted before on an izakaya date with KAT-TUN's Nakamaru Yuichi.
