The Japanese favorite reality series Who Is the Wolf? is now on Netflix. The dating program in its place of origin is thought to have been viewed by about 70 percent of females in their teens and 20s. And now, clearly, they are hoping to repeat its great success beyond its shores too with the help of Netflix.
So, in this show, five men and five women date, and among them are an unknown number of “lying wolves” who are not allowed to fall in love. Sakurako Okubo is one of these contestants. Keep reading and we shall tell you more about her.
Sakurako Okubo On Netflix’s Is She The Wolf?
Just like all other cast members, Sakurako also seemed really excited about participating in Netflix’s Is She The Wolf?. When she was finally allowed to talk about it in June, she took to her social media to tell everyone to “please take a look!”. Below, in the comment box of it, one fan had commented, “I’m watching~ It’s so cute I’m curious about how it unfolds”.
At this point, not much was known about Sakurako’s journey on the show. We only briefly learned that on the S01E06 episode titled “A Wish Upon the Falling Cherry Blossoms”, she, Tomoki, and Robin, head to cherry-blossom-filled Aomori to take a photo, and later, one of them uses the more secretive Moon LINE for the first time.
Sakurako no doubt has found fame bigger than before via Netflix’s Ookami-chan ni Won’t Fool.
“They’re all here to look for true romance — but hidden among the women is at least one “wolf” who’s prohibited from falling in love,” this is how the Netflix people introduced Sakurako and the other cast to its watchers. Later, the likes of Guardian magazine reviewed the program as “this instantly addictive dating series is unbelievably relaxing” while giving not more than three stars.
Sakurako Okubo Boyfriend
As of September 2023, it was not understood if Sakurako found a boyfriend for herself on the dating reality show. Even on her social media, she did not specify her relationship status.
Back in December 2017, rumors surfaced about Sakurako Okubo dating Takumi Kizu (Lucky/Shishired) after tabloids caught photos of them walking together after a live performance at Theater G-Rosso on 25 November 2017. But, Sakurako’s agency eventually addressed the speculations citing that Takumi is seen as an older brother figure. Fellow actor Takumi currently plays Lucky/Shishi Red in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
So, for one Sakurako is not known to be dotting on anyone, except for her pet dog Shina.
