Yamapi, Karina and Toda Erika in love triangle for Getsu 9 drama 'Summer Nude'
28-year-old Mikuriya Asahi (Yamashita) runs a small photography studio in a seaside town. He once harboured dreams of being a famous photographer but now spends his days taking photos of the town's weddings and school events. One day, he runs into Chiyohara Natsuki (Karina), a chef working in a famous Italian restaurant in Tokyo. She was getting dumped by the man she was about to marry and Mikuriya catches the moment with his camera. She later ends up working at a beach house run by one of Mikuriya's senpai. Despite the bad start, Mikuriya and Chiyohara soon bond over their similar circumstances as he had also been left by his girlfriend. Toda Erika plays Mikuriya's kouhai, Taniyama Hanae, a close friend since their high school days. She had always been in love with him but he could not forget the girlfriend who had left him without giving him any reason. With Chiyohara now in the picture, what would she do?
The actress playing the role of Mikuriya's ex-girlfriend will be announced at a later date. Filming is expected to begin in early June at a seaside location where the cast will spend extended overnight stays during the duration of filming.
