TOKYO - Japanese actor and heart-throb Hiroshi Tamaki stunned fans when he announced that he would be getting married next Tuesday (June 26).

The 38-year-old, who is best known for playing Shinichi Chiaki in the hugely popular TV series Nodame Cantabile (2006), will be tying the knot with Japanese actress Haruka Kinami, 32. As the pair have not been known to be dating at all, the news came as a shock to many.

The wedding announcement was released by the couple's respective talent agencies.

Reportedly, the two had been friends for years, but romantic sparks flew last year when they had co-starred in the drama Onna No Kunshou (Women's Medal, 2017).
