She was also learning music and arts. Acting wasn't her priority then but when she received her first fan letter, she decided to continue acting. Despite joining the show business at an early age, she also put priority to her school. Indespite the rise of her popularity from the Kid's War series, she decided to put her acting on hold as she concentrated on graduating from University of Japan and enrolling at Meiji University.
So far nothing has been revealed so Matsumoto is still and will always be officially a Male Man. Being one though needs the company of women, and Jun has been linked to a few gorgeous personalities through the years.
So let us go down the memory lane and meet the females. Undefined Year- Makinoda Aya When AV actress Aya commited suicide in Octoberreports began piling out from the tabloids about Aya's confession with sleeping with Arashi excluded Sho and other JE boys, including photos she took with them years ago.

Matsumoto Jun was the first one who Aya had a relationship with, since they've known each other since middle school. Later on though, the AV actress went to to have alleged relationships with the other Arashi memebers, excluding Sakurai Sho. That is what we call a relationship.
And they apparently had a fight, and it was also rumored that it even affected Jun's friends -- Shun Oguri felt awkward around Yukie for some time. Jun and Yukie's fight also caused Jun to decline accepting the recurring role for Gokusen II and as well as Gokusen the movie. With the first Gokusen having high ratings, it was expected that the movie would go along the manga's plot. Sadly we can never see this ending: Eikura Nana introduced her to Jun.
Blah Since I Know: The Romantic Escapades of Matsumoto Jun
With their supposed affair, a witness claimed that Emi was seen with Matsumoto, drinking in a Shibuya cafe at 1am, and seated quite intimately to each other  Kitagawa Keiko Actually it all started in early when a paparazzi took a photo of a kissing couple that resembles Keiko and Matsumoto.
But both parties had denied the accusations and Keiko said that it was actually an ex boyfriend and not Jun. But still inGossips are exchanged, saying that Jun is even engaged to her! It was all hilarious.
Of course nothing happened, not even Johnny's noticed this rumor, it's more realistic to say that these two are not even close friends in the first place.
The Arashi fans waiting outside the station were making a fuss about it. They say they were flirting with each other while shopping in Daikanyama and they were walking in the love hotel district in Shibuya. One of our staff members has seen them leaving a sushi restaurant in Tsukiji.

Oh yeah, there was also this rumor that same year where Nana allegedly confronted Yukie Nakama about Jun. I have no idea if this is either a girlfriend or just-friend's move, but it is clear that Yukie still has an effect on Jun's life, whether it's one sided love like what is mentioned earlier, or whatever Mao Inoue Hana Yori Dango first aired in and had became a phenomenon, this is also the reason why Arashi became mainstream after the past years of having poor sales.
Johnny's Entertainment must have been lax with this new development, after all, Arashi is on top of the charts with every Hana Dan theme song, and their tandem is soaring high with the ratings.
By the time Season 2 and The Movie came, the two are closer to each other than before. They are seen hanging out, laughing, and just having fun.
Any Hana Yori Dango project have ceased by this time.
