I recently finished Thai GMM TV’s I Wanna Be a Superstar, which aired in August to October 2015. The drama starred Put Puttichai as Win Pakorn, the superstar that comes into our heroines life. Gypso Ramita Mahapreukpong played Wannueng, our heroine who wanted to be the superstar. Woonsen Virithipa Pakdeeprasong played May, the superstar second lead. Tao Sattaphong Phiangphor played MeeDee, our lovelorn second male lead, in love with the clueless Wannueng. Bom Anuruk Boonpermpoon played Tom, Win Pakorn’s friend, and Thanawat Prasitsompom played Lukpit, Wannueng’s very supportive friend.

The drama begins with Wannueng going to be the armpit stand in for a superstar. She does the stand in work, and then is disappointed by the small amount of pay she gets for the day. She goes and convinces Lukpit, her friend, to pay for lunch. She also has interactions with another friend, MeeDee, who is clearly in love with her. Wannueng has no feelings for him beyond friendship, but is not above hitting him up for free meals. Later that night, she sneaks into a home and goes to sleep. We find out that Wannueng’s family has sold the family home and gone to England. They call and urge Wannueng to join them, but Wannueng refuses, adamant that she will make it on her own and become a dara (superstar). Continue reading
