I really like her as an actress plus she's very very pretty. I knew her from One Missed Call but never really paid attention to her role that time. I started to know things about her when I saw her in HanaKimi. She's very talented and has pursued studies in Chuo University which is very admirable for a busy person like her. Her personality is something that you really can't hate. Check out her future projects and I'm sure you'll love her~! XD
