Kiritani Mirei, Kasahara Hideyuki rumored to be dating
The Sports Hochi newspaper reported yesterday that model and actress Kiritani Mirei (21) and actor Kasahara Hideyuki (28) seem to be in a romantic relationship. Sources say that they became close during the summer of last year when they both appeared in the drama series “Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku,” and that they have been dating for about a year now.
Another person close to the couple says that this past summer was tough for the couple, because their filming schedules left them little time together, but they overcame that and actually strengthened their relationship.
When asked about the rumor, both Kiritani’s and Kasahara’s agencies simply declined to comment on their private lives, neither confirming nor denying the relationship.
