Jun Matsumoto (松本 潤, Matsumoto Jun, born August 30, 1983), often called by the portmanteau nickname MatsuJun (松潤), is a Japanese singer, actor, radio host, concert director, dancer, and model. He is a member of the boy band Arashi, and produces Arashi's concerts. He is best known to Japanese television drama audiences for his portrayal as Dōmyōuji Tsukasa in the Hana Yori Dango series, in which he won GQ Japan's Man of the Year Award under the singer/actor category for his work in the drama.
|Born||August 30, 1983|
Toshima, Tokyo, Japan
Matsumoto began his career in the entertainment industry when he joined the Japanese talent agency Johnny & Associates in 1996 at the age of 12. Prior to his debut as a singer with Arashi in 1999, Matsumoto started an acting career when he was cast as Teddy Duchamp for the stage play Stand by Me, which was based on the film of the same name. Since then, he has gone on to appear in numerous dramas and movies, receiving a number of awards and nominations for his roles.
Matsumoto was born in Toshima, Tokyo, as the youngest child in his family. He has an older sister whose support of KinKi Kids influenced his decision to join Johnny & Associates in 1996. Thinking it might bode good luck, he sent his application to the agency on his elementary school graduation day and received a phone call weeks later from president Johnny Kitagawa himself, inviting him to attend a rehearsal instead of being auditioned. Due to this, Matsumoto is frequently referred to as one of the elite within the agency.
Although the majority of Matsumoto's solos for albums and concerts are written by Arashi's staff, he has contributed lyrics for some of his solos: "La Familia" for the 2004 Arashi! Iza, Now Tour!!, "Naked" in 2008 for the album Dream "A" Live under the pen name "Jun", and "Stay Gold" in 2014 for the album The Digitalian. He also supervised the song "DRIVE" in 2016 for the album Are You Happy? and took part in writing lyrics with other Arashi members as Arashi for their songs "Fight Song", "Energy Song - Zekkōchō Chō!!!!", "5×10", and "5×20".
Matsumoto began to be involved in concert production in 2000. He is officially credited as the director in the closing credits for the concerts Arashi Anniversary Tour 5×20 and Arafes 2020, and on the official website of Johnny's Festival Thank you 2021 Hello 2022 for the concert of the same name. Although he primarily focuses on Arashi concerts, he also gave advice on concert production to younger groups of Johnny & Associates, such as for Hey! Say! JUMP in 2014 and King & Prince in 2018, and in 2021, he is the director for the Johnny's Festival Thank you 2021 Hello 2022 concert, featuring many different groups from Johnny & Associates.
As a concert director, Matsumoto had also been conceptualizing new ideas for concert production. In 2005, he along with the concert staff team implemented the usage of the moving stage, which has been subsequently used by several Asian musical acts. 3 years prior to Arashi Live Tour 2014 The Digitalian, Matsumoto had been putting efforts into utilizing the idea of light color changing via bluetooth onto penlights, and the concept was successfully implemented in the previously mentioned concert.
In 1997, Matsumoto was cast in his first stage play, which was based on the American coming of age film Stand by Me with future bandmates Masaki Aiba and Kazunari Ninomiya. He did not return to do any major stage productions for nearly seven years after Stand by Me, instead focusing on dramas and movies. However, in 2004, Matsumoto appeared in the stage play West Side Story with bandmates Satoshi Ohno and Sho Sakurai. In 2005 and 2006, Matsumoto was given his first lead stage play roles in Eden no Higashi (エデンの東, East of Eden) and Byakuya no Onna Kishi (白夜の女騎士, Valkyrie of the White Night) respectively.
Like bandmate Sakurai, Matsumoto made his acting debut as a television actor in April 1997 in the TBS drama special Hoken Chousain (保険調査員, Insurance Investigator). A few months later, he co-starred with the members of KinKi Kids and future bandmate Masaki Aiba in the mystery-thriller series Bokura no Yūki: Miman Toshi (ぼくらの勇気, Our Courage: Miman City). In 1999, all the members of Arashi co-starred together for the first time in the volleyball-centered short drama V no Arashi (Vの嵐).
Matsumoto made his breakthrough in 2001 when he was cast as Hajime Kinda'ichi in the third season of Kinda'ichi Shōnen no Jikenbo, taking over the role from Tsuyoshi Domoto and co-starring opposite Anne Suzuki.
Then, Matsumoto gained further popularity as an actor in 2002 when he starred in the first season of Gokusen with Yukie Nakama, Shun Oguri, Tomohiro Waki, Hiroki Narimiya and Yuma Ishigaki. His portrayal of the troubled but highly intelligent student, Shin Sawada, drew acclaim and won him Best Supporting Actor at the 33rd Television Drama Academy Awards. He later returned with most of the original cast to star in the special epilogue episode in 2003. Soon after, his character also made a cameo in Sakurai's comedy series Yoiko no Mikata (よい子の味方, Ally of Good Children). In the same year, Matsumoto took another high-profile role in the live-action adaptation of manga series Kimi wa Pet as Takeshi "Momo" Goda, starring opposite Koyuki.
In 2005, Matsumoto took the most prominent role of his career to date when he was cast as Domyōuji Tsukasa in the live-action adaptation of shōjo manga Hana Yori Dango. Co-starring opposite Mao Inoue, Shun Oguri, Shota Matsuda and Tsuyoshi Abe, the series was a success with an average viewership rating of 19.6%. Matsumoto's portrayal as the air-headed and arrogant leader of four rich heirs won him Best Supporting Actor again at the 47th Television Drama Academy Awards.
In 2007, due to the success of Hana Yori Dango, it spawned a second season, which was an even bigger hit with television audiences as it had a peak rating of 27.6% on the final episode and an overall rating of 21.57%. Matsumoto won Best Supporting Actor at the 10th Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix for his role. The same year, Matsumoto starred in Bambino!, which won him his first Best Actor award at the 53rd Television Drama Academy Awards.
In 2008, he re-united with Bambino! co-star Karina for the drama special Myū no Anyo Papa ni Ageru (みゅうの足パパにあげる, Myū will Give Daddy Her Legs), which aired as part of the 24-hour Television telethon in 2008. He portrayed a man diagnosed with CIDP struggling to recuperate and return to normal life with his wife and young daughter. The drama special received a viewership rating of 25.6%.
In 2009, Matsumoto starred in his first drama series in nearly two years. He portrayed Vito Hayakawa (早川ビト, Hayakawa Vito), a half-Japanese, half-Filipino young man who always faces life with a smile in the drama Smile. Matsumoto subsequently won Best Actor for his role in the 13th Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix. Fuji TV announced on September 10, 2009, that Matsumoto would star in a three-part drama special called Wagaya no Rekishi (わが家の歴史, History of our Family) scheduled to air for three consecutive days in the spring of 2010.
In January 2010, Matsumoto co-starred with the other members of Arashi in their first drama in nearly ten years in the human suspense drama special Saigo no Yakusoku (最後の約束, Last Promise). Matsumoto portrayed Nozomu Gotō (後藤 望, Gotō Nozomu), a 27-year-old motorcycle courier rider who is caught up in a building hijack. Matsumoto co-starred with Yūko Takeuchi in his first Getsuku drama titled Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku (夏の恋は虹色に輝く, Summer Love Shines in Rainbow Colors). He also made a guest appearance on the final episode of bandmate Ohno's drama Kaibutsu-kun (怪物くん, Little Monster), which is based on the Fujiko Fujio's Kaibutsu-kun manga and anime series.
In 2016, Matsumoto played as Hiroto Miyama in 99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi (99.9-刑事専門弁護士-, 99.9 Criminal Lawyer). The series surrounds a lawyer always eager to find the 0.1% truth in the midst of 99.9% cases in Japan where once one is prosecuted, they are presumably guilty. Later in 2018, Matsumoto returned for the sequel titled 99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi-Season II (99.9-刑事専門弁護士-SEASON II, 99.9 Criminal Lawyer-Season II). The sequel also experienced success like the prequel, with an average viewership of 17.6% in the Kanto region, being one of the most praised drama series in 2018.
In 2019, Matsumoto played lead role as Matsuura Takeshirō in the NHK drama special, Eien no Nispa~Hokkaido to Nazuketa Otoko Matsuura Takeshiro~ (永遠のニㇱパ～北海道と名付けた男 松浦武四郎～) which was made to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the naming of Hokkaido.
In 2002, Arashi co-starred in their first movie together called Pikanchi Life is Hard Dakedo Happy (ピカ☆ンチ Life is HardだけどHappy, Pikanchi Life is Hard But Happy). They came together again for its sequel Pikanchi Life is Hard Dakara Happy (ピカ☆☆ンチ Life is HardだからHappy, Pikanchi Life is Hard Therefore Happy) in 2004. He also starred in the film Tokyo Tower as a womanizer with a preference for older women with Junichi Okada the same year.
In 2007, Arashi starred in their third movie together Kiiroi Namida while Matsumoto was cast in the independent film Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru with Nana Eikura as his co-star. He portrayed the lead character Yori Yūki (結城 頼, Yūki Yori), a high school student who falls in love and develops a romantic relationship with his younger twin sister.
In 2008, Matsumoto took on his first jidaigeki role in a re-make of Akira Kurosawa's Hidden Fortress: The Last Princess, with award-winning actors Hiroshi Abe, Kippei Shiina and Masami Nagasawa. Soon after, TBS decided to end the Hana Yori Dango series through a film. Hana Yori Dango Final, which hit the big screen on June 28, 2008, in Japan, became a box office hit.
In 2013, Matsumoto Jun played the role of Okuda Kosuke in the movie 'Hidamari no Kanojo'(Her Sunny Side) along with actress Ueno Juri in the latest movie of director Miki Takahiro ('Solanin', 'Boku ga Ita').'Hidamari no Kanojo' was filmed in January and to hit cinemas on October 2013.
In 2014, Arashi once again starred in a sequel to the Pikanchi series, Pikanchi Life is Hard Tabun Happy (ピカ☆★☆ンチ Life is HardたぶんHappy, Pikanchi Life is Hard Perhaps Happy).
It is announced that in late 2021, Matsumoto Jun will be playing Hiroto Miyama in the 99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi The Movie (99.9-刑事専門弁護士-THE MOVIE, 99.9 Criminal Lawyer The Movie), a sequel to the 99.9 Criminal Lawyer drama series.
Matsumoto had his own radio show, Jun Style, on Nack5 from October 5, 2002, to September 2011.
