Meisa Kuroki appearing in last ad campaign before taking time off to have baby
Actress-singer Meisa Kuroki, 24, who in February announced her sudden marriage to former KAT-TUN singer Jin Akanishi, 28, is appearing in a TV commercial campaign for cosmetic maker Kanebo’s Kate brand, which is her last work engagement before taking leave to give birth to her first baby in October.
Since announcing her marriage and pregnancy, Kuroki has dropped out of public view, with the exception of a recitation of “Miyazaki Kenji ga tsutaerukoto” (Message from Kenji Miyazaki) at the Setagaya Public Theater in Tokyo in May to support victims of last year’s March 11 disaster.
The new ads are for Kanebo Kate’s fall 2012 spider line collection which goes on sale Aug 1. Kuroki represents the image of a woman who is cool and sharp, according to Kanebo.
