Mizobata Junpei is 'Face of the Year'

Mizobata Junpei chosen as 'Face of the Year' by Nikkei Trendy
2nd November 2009

Popular ikemen actor Mizobata Junpei has been chosen as information magazine Nikkei Trendy's 'Face of the Year.' He attended an event held by the magazine in Tokyo on 2nd November.

With appearances in dramas, movies and various TV programs this year, Mizobata was chosen as the 'Face' that will appear in even more works in future. "I am extremely grateful. To fulfill the expectations from this, I will re-tighten the fundoshi (brace myself) and do my utmost best," Mizobata said, using words rarely heard from young men these days.

He was asked,"What has changed since you became famous?" "The grandmothers from my hometown put me up on a pedestal and tell me, "We're glad we could meet someone we see on television before we die." That gives me mixed feelings though," Mizobata replied with a wry smile.
