Actress Meisa Kuroki, 23, and pop singer Jin Akanishi, 27, have wed, submitting their marriage registration certificate Feb. 2 to a Tokyo ward, the agencies representing them announced separately Thursday.

“I’d like to keep trying my best both in my work and my private life,” Kuroki said in a comment released by her office Thursday.

Kuroki debuted in a drama directed by Tsuka Kohei in 2004. She has featured in a number of movies and TV commercials, and is currently one of Japan’s most popular actresses.

Akanishi is a former member of pop idol group Kat-Tun and is signed to major agency Johnny’s.
