Thirteen year old, ‘Ploy’ Patsorn Kongmeesuk, who rocketed to fame in the Thai film ” The Happiness of Kati” found filming for the upcoming Modern 9 lakorn “Tai Fah Tawan Diew (Under the same Heaven or Autumn Destiny)” with Mario Maurer and Chat Priayachat and several Korean pop stars very disheartening because she was repeatedly criticized for her acting.
“It was very difficult. When it was tiring, I had to endure it. At times, I have to admit, it was very disheartening, there were times I cried. But I’m lucky to have good parents, they gave me support. They told me it’s okay. You can be disheartened but you can’t give up, ” said Ploy.
Ploy was the youngest cast member and the one who was heavily criticized for her acting. “I was the youngest and I received a lot of criticism for my acting. During the love scenes, they said my look was very blank (empty), there was nothing there. When there was a long scene and you have to use your eyesight to express the meaning (the emotions of the scene), my look was blank again. There was nothing again.”
She cried heavily over the criticism. Luckily for her, she had supportive co-stars who gave her support and taught her to act better. “I cried a lot; however, my co-stars help teach me and gave me support. Right now, I might be lacking in my performance, I do apologize, but I will try to improve myself,” Ploy told the press.
Was it really that bad? I heard she was riveting in “The Happiness of Kati”.
I can’t believe they asked her this but they did, there is a rumor that Ploy had undergone plastic surgery in Korea and reporters asked her about it. She’s 13, I think it would be unethical if she did. Ploy said she had nothing done. “I have not done anything because I fear pain.”
Rumor has it that she has had 5 procedures done. Again, Ploy denied it. “What do you want me to have done? This is my chin, these are my eyes.” Though Ploy denied the plastic surgery rumor, the reporters pressed on and asked her more questions. She was ordered by her manager Ae to have something done. Again, for the 3rd time, she denied it. They have gone to see a doctor about her eyes but the doctors said she was too young, she is only 13.
Then they asked if Eli, from the Korean boyband U-kiss, secretly liked her because he did complimented her by saying she was narak (cute). Ploy doesn’t believe so. He probably sees her as a younger sister more so.
“He likes me as a younger sister more so because I’m a good talker, even though I get scolded or when I cry, either way I talk a lot, I’m a good talker. Personally, I like him only as an older brother.”
Pictures of Eli (real name: Kim Kyoung Jae) from the upcoming Modern 9 lakorn “Tai Fah Tawan Diew (Under the same Heaven or Autumn Destiny)” airing Saturday, January 16, 2010.
In the lakorn-Korean drama fusion, Ploy plays a young girl name Ji Joon, Eli plays Junsu, the guy her aunt wants her to marry. But Ji Joon loves Kim Minho (Mario Maurer), our lead guy.
