Fukuyama Masaharu is a Japanese musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor. He debuted in 1990 with the single "Tsuioku no Ame no Naka". While he can also be seen in Japanese television drama, Fukuyama is best known for his singing career. His 1992 breakout single "Good night" gained a wide audience because of its tie-in with a drama. In 1993, he made his first appearance in Kōhaku Uta Gassen, where only successful J-pop and enka artists are invited to perform.
He took a hiatus in 1996, stopping all his entertainment activities except his radio shows. He returned to the entertainment scene in 1998, and his first single after two years hiatus, "Heart/You", landed at number 3 on Oricon chart and sold 569,000 copies in total.
In 2007, after a four-years absence from drama, Fukuyama returned to television, starring as the brilliant but eccentric Physics Associate Professor in the widely acclaimed television drama "Galileo". He won "Best Actor" at the 55th Television Drama Academy Awards for the role. He also formed a band, KOH+, with his co-star in the drama Shibasaki Kou.

He married actress Fukiishi Kazue on her birthday September 28, 2015. On August 28, 2016 they announced that they are expecting their first child. Edit Biography
