Other incarnations

Asakawa is better known in the male guise of Yoichi Asakawa, portrayed by Rikiya Otaka in the 1998 film adaptation. Apart from sex, Yoichi differs from Yoko because:

  • Rather than having married parents, he has divorced parents.
  • Rather than being one, he is seven years old.
  • He appears more often than her, especially in the scene when he watches The Cursed Videotape.
  • Time of viewing the film has changed.
  • Tomoko is his cousin by blood, rather than by marriage.
  • Aidan Keller, in the 2002 American remake of the 1998 Japanese film, is the son of single-mother Rachel Keller.
  • Hong Booram, in the 1999 South Korean remake of the 1998 Japanese film, is the daughter of single-mother Sun-joo Hong.
