Thai stars Mario Maurer, Nonkul Chanon, and Gulf Kanawut are capping off a busy year by finishing off pending work and spending time with their loved ones during the holidays.
The three revealed what they are up to during a video meeting with selected members of the press on Saturday, December 11, for the upcoming TNT Kilig Fest Christmas Special.
“For Christmas, I think I will be with my mom at home because lately I’ve been shooting and [do] not [have] much time with her so I will spend time with my family, and maybe going [and spending the] holiday to the sea with my friends and family,” Mario said.
It’s the same case with Nonkul who is also looking forward to going to the beach with his family. He lightheartedly said, “I will go to Surat with my family, to the sea. Unfortunately, that place doesn’t have an internet or a phone signal so I hope we can survive.” As for Gulf, he will be busy with work.
When asked about their plans for the New Year, all three of them answered that they would be focusing on continuing their projects.
Mario said, “My plans for 2022. I think my drama will be out, and I’m going to do more shooting with my new drama. It’s coming [this] 2022.”
“To myself, the plan would be don’t get sick and be able to finish other, you know, the pending shooting, work that’s still keep going on because I don’t want to slow anyone down,” Nonkul said. “So wrapping up the existing projects that you have?” clarified the host, to which he replied, “Yes.”
As for Gulf, the host interpreted, “Gulf is going to concentrate on his existing work and just make sure that his work comes out very well.”
Meanwhile, since their latest venture is called the TNT Kilig Fest Christmas Special,the men were asked about what makes them feel kilig or what makes their hearts flutter.
“What makes me feel kilig? I think it’s the love of the fans,” Mario said, adding that whenever the fans show support such as sending them a greeting is a kilig moment for him.
Nonkul seconded his answer and said, “Same as with Mario... Like when we see fans on the screen even though we’re still far away and they’re still supporting us from [a] distance.”
“So all three of them have the same answers, basically the feeling and the love from the fans,” summarized the host.
