Just a couple of weeks ago, I flipped on the television to watch a DVD, but before I could hit the auxiliary button, I caught this versatile talent appearing on a variety show, and he was impersonating Elvis and Suraphol Sombatcharoen.
But now it has come to this. Supakorn is co-starring in a Phranakorn studio film, Busaba Bold and Beautiful (Suay Sing Krating Sab).
The story has been translated thusly by a co-worker:
Pod (Supakorn) and Ad (TV star Weeraphap Suphappaibul) are crooks living in Bangkok. The father of Pod's childhood girlfriend Dao (TV actress Suwanan Kingying) comes to plead with Pod to find his runaway daughter and bring her back home.
Dao was to be married to a local official whom she despised. Quite a con and a thief herself, she got Po and Ad involved in a big diamond heist. Diamonds in their hands, the three decided to keep the diamonds. On the run from the rest of the gang they keep on falling into hilarious situations.
Pod and Ad fall in love with Dao and she uses her charms to swindle them for diamonds, too.
Veteran comedian Jaraspong "Too" Surasawadee also stars.
Somehow, through the love triangle and all the diamond-heist shenanigans, there will be room for the usual fart jokes, racist slurs and annoying sound effects that find their way into all Thai comedy films, especially those from Phranakorn.
But hey, at least Supakorn is getting work. And for that, I'm happy.
Busaba Bold and Beautiful opens in Thailand cinemas on January 24.
