Actress Kuriyama Chiaki (23) has made the gossip magazines for the first time. According to today's issue of "Friday", she is romantically involved with actor Koshinaka Makoto (27), former vocalist of the defunct visual-kei rock band Λucifer. She was spotted visiting his Tokyo apartment earlier in the month. Her agency says she is taking guitar and vocal lessons and has made many musician friends recently, but denies any deeper relationship between the two. Kuriyama made her name as Gogo Yubari in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill Vol.1" in 2003, and has since established herself as an actress and model. Λucifer (or Lucifer) was formed in 1999 based around the manga "Kaikan Phrase", with http://www.japan-zone.com/cgi-bin/mt/mt.cgithe band members taking their names from the manga's characters. They released three albums and nine singles before breaking up in January 2003.
Interesting. The magazine also published photos of the two of them together. I wonder if I can find those photos.
Here's a pic of the guy.
The look kind of reminds me of Hyde.
