Hallyu entertainer finds lover in Japanese starlet
Korean singer K and Japanese actress Mari Sekine
Japanese actress Mari Sekine and Korean singer K are apparently dating with intentions of marriage.
On Dec. 20 Japanese media broke the news that actress, and daughter of actor Tsutomu Sekine have been dating since becoming acquainted three years ago.
The two apparently met on a radio show and Sekine’s father has welcomed the Korean singer with open arms.
It’s been rumored that the whole Sekine clan are big fans of K-pop.
K made his debut in Korea in 2004 but moved on to Japan in 2005. His debut single “Over…” was fifth on the Oricon chart at the time.
Last year he entered into military service in his home land and was released in October.
Japanese media said that Sekine made frequent trips to visit her beau while he was serving in the Army.
