Always Yours (1985-7-Japan-Hong Kong)

Unread postby Markgway » 09 Feb 2014, 06:07

Cast listing from Hong Kong version:

Image

1. Natsumi Asano
2. Alan Wong Wai-Tak (I think this name is bogus and that it's a fake Chinese name for JP actor Tatsuya Oka who in this edit is supposed to be Chinese!?)

Image
Is that Tatsuya Oka? If not... then who he...?

Image

3. Tang Kam-Chuen
4. Wong Kin-Yuen (can't find anything on this person... possible Japanese AKA?)
5. Kyoko Koizumi
6. Saeko Kizuki

Image

7. Kam Biu
8. Cheung Fan (Not sure who this is?)
9. Tsui Oi-Sam
10. Tam Yuk-Kuen (?)
11. Natsue Kimura
12. Etsuro Miyamoto
13. Mari Kono
14. Sumiko Tanaka
15. Yoko Kurita

Took me ages to translate those names....

Image

16. Toyokazu Minami
17. Wu Sau-Man (?)
18. Bo Wai-Nam (?)

Image

Opening logo to prove that this is a legit co-production (of sorts).

Asked my girlfriend to take a look... no idea about the Chinese names, but the Japanese seem correct except;

5. Kyoko Izumi (eng. is wrong. Kyoko Koizumi is different actress. Or the kanji is wrong.)

and no idea about Tatsuya Oka. I can't find any actor named Tatsuya Oka.

Thanks... I guess those unrecognised names ARE Chinese then?
Damned if I know who they are though...
KAM Biu and TSUI Oi-Sam are the only known Chinese actors I spotted.
The rest I'll have to take on faith. :dontknow:

5. Kyoko Izumi (eng. is wrong. Kyoko Koizumi is different actress. Or the kanji is wrong.)


You're right... I never noticed this.
I took the English translation for granted.

Kyoko KOIZUMI (小泉今日子/こいずみ きょうこ)

Kyoko IZUMI (泉今日子)
There's an AV actress with this name; given the film's sexual content I expect it's her.
I haven't provided a link because she does hardcore and I don't want you to get in trouble with your boss/girlfriend. ;)

and no idea about Tatsuya Oka. I can't find any actor named Tatsuya Oka.


Found a Japanese cast list for the film:
http://eiga.com/movie/39638/

Oka appears to have only made two movies before Always Yours (and they were supporting roles) before moving into Anime in some capacity. Since second billed Alan WONG doesn't appear to exist it must be a fake Chinese name for Oka who IS the male lead (in the HK version he's supposed to be Chinese).

Cheung Fan sounds familiar.... I can hear in my head Bey Logan saying it, so maybe he gave him/her a name check in some commentary.

That sounds logical. Nikkatsu (who is is marked as the Japanese studio in your last screencap) and this was during their Roman Porno period. Although the genre originally had absolutely nothing to do with hardcore - in fact they produced some celebrated masterpieces - the studio was drifting away from artistically accomplished films towards the real thing during the mid/late 80's. It would be no surprise to find actual AV actresses in this one.
