“Athlete” star Joe Nakamura and Yohdi Kondo together with the film’s OST singer Maria Theresa Gow dropped by the VIVA office last September 13 for the cast’s courtesy call with VIVA’s big boss, Boss Vic!
“Athlete” is a Japanese LGBT themed film which tells the story of Kohei, a former competitive swimmer living an ordinary life with his wife and high school daughter. One day, his wife suddenly asks him for a divorce. He then has a fateful encounter with a beautiful boy named Yutaka.
Yutaka dreams of becoming an animator while working as an online chat boy. At the same time, he is struggling to tell his father that he is gay. They are both confused but eventually become attracted to each other. The emotional ups and downs that their characters go through made their relationship grow deeper.
During the cast’s visit, they also took time to take on fun challenges for their Filipino fans!
