Kagawa Teruyuki's parents were both popular stage performers. When they divorced in 1968, his mother brought him up single-handedly. After high school, Teruyuki attended the University of Tokyo, majoring in Social Psychology.

Upon graduation, he entered the acting business, making his debut in the 27th NHK Taiga drama Kasuga no Tsubone. At first, many audience members saw him only as the son of his famous parents, but over time, he proved himself to be a skilled and versatile actor in his own right. He has been in numerous television dramas and movies, with notable roles in productions like Toshiie and Matsu (as Toyotomi Hideyoshi), Kyumei Byoto 24 Ji 3 (as Dr. Kuroki Harumasa), "Dokuritsu Shonen Gasshoudan", "Suri", "Keimusho no Naka", "Warau Iemon", and "Yureru." He has also worked with Chinese directors in the critically acclaimed films "Devils on the Doorstep" and "Nuan." From 2009 to 2011, he starred as Masaoka Shiki in the high-budget NHK drama Saka no Ue no Kumo.

Aside from acting, Teruyuki is an avid fan of boxing, possessing in-depth knowledge of the sport. -- Lady Zhuge
