“Pong” Nawat Kullrattanarak is pleased with Chinese fans for giving good welcomes to the lakorn, ‘Songkram Nang Fa‘ that it’s getting quite popular in the land of the dragon. It has been receiving warm welcomes that Pong was asked to work in China.
In Thailand, you can say he’s famous already, but recently actor, “Pong” Nawat was overly excited when he was contacted to hold a fan-meet for his fans in China after ‘Songkram Nang Fa‘ was a hit amongst the viewers in China. There were many fans who went to greet the actor. Pong said,
“I just went to China because there were a lot of lakorns that aired over there. The television station over there asked me to go on television over there. I felt like a star. The moment I got off the plane there were fans waiting to greet me. There were about a 100 fans at the airport.”
“There were a few of my lakorns that aired over there. There’s like ‘Leuat Hong‘ and ‘Songkram Nang Fa‘, which ‘Songkram Nang Fa‘ was well received over there. I’ve had fans contact me while I was in Thailand already. They would get on the website and send messages. There are even e-mails. I thought there were only 2-3 fans, but when I arrived at the airport there were about a 100 fans waiting for me. I felt like I was an AF or The Star contestant. There were fans who followed me around and there were some who drove a van following. I was confused because I was more famous in China than I was in Thailand.” Pong revealed with laughter.
When asked if fans from China had followed him to Thailand the actor revealed that the fans from China did organize a group to come watch his lakorn in Thailand. Which had Pong thinking that the work that has to be aired, he’ll have to work even harder and the best that he could.
