Manabu Oshio aims overseas
Actor and singer Manabu Oshio is looking to refresh his career. It was announced on Thursday that he has now signed a contract with Avex’s management division, joining other talents like Shido Nakamura, Koyuki, and recent addition Yu Darvish.
Oshio has been unsigned since leaving Ken-on in December 2005, and in late 2006 he married actress Akiko Yada, whose career took a dive after her clean image was tarnished by her association with the bad boy Oshio. The couple had their first child last November.
