I can’t believe this poor girl is being criticized for not smiling, for looking like she was sulking, like she didn’t want to be there, like she had a frown on her face the whole night. Um. Okay, this is the first time she has been seen out in a public event with her high profile, Thai superstar singer slash actor boyfriend who is adored by many female fans and have been famous for a decade plus, and you expect her to not feel uncomfortable in front of onlookers and the media. Me, I would categorize myself as being a very shy girl. Some people are not meant to be in the spotlight nor do they feel comfortable in it, I can understand where this young girl is coming from.
Last week, singer Dome Pakorn Lum took his girlfriend Paint to Nok Bin’s CEO, Patee Sarasin’s wedding and people did not like how she presented herself. You need to smile and stop looking unhappy girl, everyone urged. At the wedding, Paint was standoffish and was very engrossed with her phone. I do that too, seeking solace from a small electronic when I feel uncomfortable. With Paint, it’s her phone. With me, it is my iTouch.
Paint was standoffish, didn’t smile, and kinda acted like a child from what I’m reading. At point Dome had to tell Paint like a father to his child to make an effort in public: “Please smile a little, the media made an effort to come here.”
Whatever her insecurities, some Thai netizens urged Paint to make an effort because she is dating a superstar and others are still comparing Paint to Ploy. Geez, they can’t let that go, can they? And Dome and Ploy have been broken up for years.
Via her twitter account, Paint explained herself. “I’m sorry na ka, to have cause a misunderstanding about the event that transpired that day. I wasn’t unhappy at all na ka. But it was my first event, I wasn’t used to seeing so many reporters. I have to apologize na ka. I’m a person who normally have a frowning face. People close to me know that. I wasn’t frowning or unhappy with anyone. Please don’t view each other [me] in a bad way like this.”
