Musicals are pretty hot right now, but you don’t hear about that many coming out of Japan. Now, there’s a new one coming out about Sumo Wrestlers. You may actually recognize the star of the film, Taiwanese singer Lin Yu-chun, whom gained a measure of internet fame after appearing on America’s Got Talent in 2010.
The film, called Dosu Koi Musical, or Sumo Road in English stars Lin as a Taiwanese exchange student who comes to Japan after being bullied for his weight. He apparently joins a sumo club but is forced out after some incident and the story details his attempt to win back his position.
Here are a couple trailers from the film as well as Lin’s appearance on America’s Got Talent
