Yes he is/was. But he didn't brag about it.

Kotaro Koizumi used to lie about himself on group dates

Actor Koizumi Kotaro attended the production press conference for his upcoming TBS drama "Petero no Souretsu ("The Funeral Procession of Peter")" - July 7, 8:00pm, thereafter Mondays 7:00pm.

Speaking about the theme of "lies" with regards to the drama, Koizumi admitted that he used to lie about himself, "When I was in my late teens to early 20s, I didn't want people to know about my father (Koizumi Junichiro, former Prime Minister of Japan), so I would go on group dates and say that 'I am not related to Koizumi Junichiro'" in order to enjoy his time more."

Actresses Hasegawa Kyoko and Kuninaka Ryoko and more will also join the cast.

Kotaro Koizumi to be lead in new WOWOW drama

Koizumi Kotaro will be playing the lead role in new WOWOW drama "Shi no Zoki" which will be shown from 12 July in the Sundays 10pm timeslot and consists of 5 episodes. The drama which is based on the novel by Asano Ryo, features Koizumi as Numazaki Kyota, a director working in a TV programme production company who happens to discover a woman's corpse in a forest at Fuji. It is later found through the autopsy that the woman froze to death and one of her kidneys was extracted. At the same time, it is found that a couple sent to the Kyuai Kinen Hospital for treatment of their injuries had engaged in the trading of organs thus leading the hospital's director Ota Isamu (Ogi Shigemitsu) to report this to the police. As a result, Hino Seiichiro (Takeda Tetsuya), the surgeon who performed the organ transplant operation is summoned by the police for questioning. After hearing about Hino's case, Numazaki starts investigating if the body found in Fuji had anything to do with it. Co-stars also include Toyohara Kosuke and Konishi Manami.

Koizumi who is 36 years old this year, expressed his wish to have this drama become a turning point in his acting career. He commented that as the theme of this drama is rather heavy, there may be no clear answers as to who is right or wrong so he hopes that viewers can keep watching till the end in order to find out for themselves.

Kotaro Koizumi to play Yuki Amami's rival in "Chef - Mitsuboshi no Kyuushoku"

Koizumi Kotaro will be playing the rival of Amami Yuki in the upcoming FujiTV Autumn 2016 drama "Chef ~ Mitsuboshi no Kyuushoku ~" which begins its run from October in the Thursdays 10pm timeslot. He plays the character named Shinoda Shogo who is the owner of a famous French restaurant in Ginza, has a MBA and is known for his shrewd business ways which prioritise profits over everything. Shinoda dislikes how his chef Hoshino Mitsuko (Amami) at his restaurant La Cuisine de La reine, ignores his orders and keeps making dishes without a care for the bottomline and fires her from his restaurant. Due to Shinoda's obstruction tactics, Hoshino finds it difficult to find her next job and is approached to take part in a variety programme by Yaguchi Saki (Tomochika) where she has to cook meals for primary school students. At first, she thought that school meals are a breeze to cook but upon suffering bad reviews from the children, she resolves to cook these meals well and suffers setbacks in the process.

Koizumi who used to play a lot of good guy roles in the past, took on the first baddie role in TBS Autumn 2015's "Shitamachi Rocket" for the first time in his then 14-year career as an actor. This time, he will play another cool business owner who sees the lead character as an enemy. Koizumi and Amami last worked together in the FujiTV April 2012 drama "Kaeru no Oujosama" but this is the first time that they are playing rivals. Koizumi hopes to be able to show the sparks between their characters and is preparing for his role by talking to friends who are both chefs and owners of their restaurants so as to see how he can portray Shinoda's struggles and hard work in keeping the business afloat.

Co-stars include Endo Kenichi who plays Araki Heisuke, the nutritionist at Mitsuba Primary School who is serious and stubborn thus he has a lot of clashes with Hoshino. This will be his third time working with Amami after the 2009 drama "Fumou Chitai" and drama SP "Watashi to iu na no hensoukyoku". Kawaguchi Haruna will play the role of Takayama Haruko who is the assistant cook at Mitsuba while Arakawa Yoshiyoshi plays Komatsu Minoru who regards Hoshino as a rival. Okudera Kenji, the sous chef who is able to replicate Hoshino's dishes, will be played by Toyohara Kosuke.
