Things have been weird for the last year after rumors that Mao and Jun would get married in early 2016 after she finished her Taiga dorama came and went, and recently there were tabloid reports claiming Jun had been cheating on Mao for a few years with AV actress Tsukasa Aoi.
Neither said responded to both sets of rumors but this week Mao swung a small stick and make a big mark with her responses to a reporter’s questions on dating and her acting career.
When Mao was approached by a reporter outside her home this week, she took a few questions including whether she was planning to retire since she changed agencies last year after finishing her Taiga and since then hasn’t done an acting project.

Yaya tells them that there’s no need to ask her mom, because her mom would side with her, whomever she likes will be approved. They are wondering if Nadech bought that ring for her.
