Actress “Jik” Naowarat Yooktanan, the woman who plays Stefan’s comedic mother who is crazy about Korean dramas in the currently airing lakorn “Kulap Neua Mek (Roses above the cloud)”, has taken these semi-nude pictures as a form of print advertisement for her new cosmetic line, some sort of anti-aging cream product. Jik plans to advertise, using these photos, in Taiwan and several other countries.
She has invested 10 million baht ($302,343 USD) in this project and doesn’t care what society will think, she cares about the money she might lose if it fails. “I’m afraid (referring to the question that society might think ill of her), but I’m more afraid that my invested assets might be blown away like the wind. How it turns out, I have to accept it. I’m not cheating anyone to make a living, this is from own creation and my sweat. The clothes in the photos are the sexist I have ever worn in my entire life. It’s my first and my last,” said Jik.
Reporters asked Jik if she is doing this for fame.
“The name ‘Naowarat’ will not be anymore famous than this. It’s up to interpretation. If someone views it as indecent, then it’s indecent. If they view it as normal, then it’s normal. I am my own person. I’m not causing a problem for society,” answered Jik. She has spunk, you have to give her credit for that.
Jik is known for her skill in getting attention from the media, just look at her at award shows, she dresses absurdly for a reason–> obviously to get media attention. Yea, I know I’m just stating the obvious. Case in point, people are noticing similarities between Jik’s photos for her cosmetic line and Aum Atichart’s appearance on the cover of LIP magazine for their November 2009 issue. Did Jik copy Aum Atichart’s LIP magazine cover? I doubt it, her photos suit what she is selling.
As for Aum Atichart, he has not seen Jik’s photos and said he could not give an opinion. He did say that people can do whatever they want.
Yes, she looks pretty decent in these photos. But lets get real, it’s airbushed.
For a woman who could be in her 60s or late 50s, she has a nice body.
