Tabe Mikako and Kubota Masataka are rumoured to be dating according to an article in the 31st May issue of FRIDAY. The two were caught entering Tabe’s apartment in late May and Kubota was seen leaving only in the following morning. Tabe and Kubota last worked together in the autumn 2012 drama “Ooku ~ Tanjou” and had acted in intimate scenes. FRIDAY claimed that after working on the drama, the two of them became an item. When asked about the rumour, Tabe’s agency declined to comment by giving the reason that the person-in-charge was not available.
