Hiro & Ayaka
Getting married at the height of their popularity

8 month relationship! Mizushima Hiro & Ayaka getting married at the height of their popularity
3rd April 2009

It was revealed on the 2nd of April that popular actor Mizushima Hiro (24), recently ranked Number 1 in the Ikemen Ranking list, and popular singer-songwriter Ayaka (21) are getting married. The two of them began their relationship after a magazine talk together for a magazine last June. They are expected to submit their marriage registration on Mizushima's birthday, the 13th. Getting their big breaks 3 to 4 years after their debut, the two of them, at the height of of their popularity, are going for their goal towards happiness together.

They are in the different fields of acting and singing but in the same agency. They began their acquaintance when they hit it off while doing a talk for the magazine 'mini' last June. According to close friends, they started dating around August.

From the beginning, the romance was a serious one with both mutually keeping marriage in mind. They have already met each other's parents and made formal arrangements on each side. The marriage registration is expected to be submitted on Mizushima's 25th birthday on the 13th. Currently, there are no plans yet for a ceremony and a wedding.

Mizushima spent his childhood, up to middle school in Zurich, Switzerland. Standing at 1.8m, he is a Keio University graduate. With all the necessary characteristics to be popular with women, he has been called the 'super ikemen among ikemens'.

From playing the lead role in TV Asahi's Kamen Rider Kabuto in 2006-2007, to Fuji TV's Zettai Kareshi (2008) and Mei-chan no Shitsuji (this year January to March) among others, he has garnered wide-ranging support from children to housewives. In last month's Oricon Style article 'Ikemens On Your Mind Ranking', he was voted first, beating the likes of Oguri Shun (26) and Eita (26). He topped the 'Favourite Actors Among High School Girls' too.

Ayaka, who debuted in 2006 with her song 'I believe' made history by being the first female singer-songwriter to enter the Oricon Charts in the top 3 on her debut. In the same year, she was presented with the Best New Artist Award. She has participated in NHK's Kouhaku 3 years consecutively. In 2007, her hit song 'Mikazuki' topped the 'Karaoke Request Ranking'. It was covered by Inoue Yousui (60) as well, a song that crosses over generations.

Shining as brightly as the 2 of them are, they dislike being loud in their personal lives. There are no gossip of them dating in popular spots or restaurants, their sightings are limited to frequent sightings of them shopping at supermarkets. Both busy with their careers, they spend their free time away from work at each other's homes, eating home-cooked meals. This seems to be a romance nurtured at home.

Deciding to get married at the height of their popularity, it is simply because these two have chosen their 'little piece of happiness'. "They look out for each other, they're an ideal couple together." They have been given the blessings by those around them.

Update : On the day that Sports Nippon broke the news about their relationship, Hiro and Ayaka held an emergency press conference to reveal that they are actually already married.
