Boun and Prem Is Real Experience

Virtual Fan Meeting Recap

The Boun-Prem Is Real virtual fan meeting was held by Neeed Bangkok and Thai Thicket Major. Originally, this concert was supposed to be held earlier this year. However, because of the pandemic the concert was moved to December 19, 2021 at 7 p.m. Bangkok standard time.

The virtual meeting started with a montage of Boun & Prem on and off screen moments so far. After the VTR concluded it opened with Boun and Prem sitting together. The MC joined the two actors onstage. Boun and Prem greeted their 500 VIP fans and other attendees via Thai Ticket Major Live Screening.

The MC translated throughout the program in three languages (Thai, Mandarin, and English) which was appreciated. *There was also a link for Japanese attendees to view subtitles.

The actors discussed their favorite scenes shooting the VTR.

Prem choose his favorite scene was getting his teeth brushed. He said he really fell asleep during shooting.

Most memorable scene: Boun mentioned that a scene was deleted: A rain scene because the rain fell down wrong because of the water hoses used.

Question + Answer Session

Q. If you had one day together where would you go?

Prem: One day is not enough. I would probably stay in my room and have breakfast and hang out together.

Boun: Play games, and stuff. That would be enough.

*There was also a question about their sleeping habits, however I didn’t understand everything that was said as the translations were live.

Games

Next, the first round of lucky fans got to play a guessing game. Prem was given three yellow sticky notes. The sticky notes were placed on his body and Boun had to guess the scent. He guessed incorrectly because he thought the scent was grapes, when in fact it was banana.

Next, Boun had three pink sticky notes placed on his body. Prem had to guess the scent. He also guessed grapes, all but one of his fans guessed incorrectly. The lucky fan guessed strawberry which allowed Prem to win the game. Boun’s punishment was to do 3 expressions: cool, sexy, and cute.

Solo & Duet Singing

A solo song was performed by Prem.*I don’t know that name of the song as it was a Thai song. Later he was joined on stage with Boun as he played the guitar. The background looked like an art gallery with various photos of both actors.

Back to the questions and answer sessions. The ongoing debate of Boun/Prem or Prem/Boun was discussed via pictures. I honestly think that as fans we care more about this topic than they really do.

The next segment asked both the actors questions regarding their favorite items. Prem mentioned how Boun travels with a pillow. Boun said that he needs that pillow whenever he travels because it helps him sleep with having a familiar scent. Eventually, Prem lost the game and had to do a cute voice recording for fans as a punishment.

After a quick social media update Boun’s solo began. Boun continued singing the song with a crystal clear beach in the back round. Prem joined his performance on stage and they walked as if they were spending a day at the beach together. Boun gave Prem a surprise kiss on the head and the song ended.

Favorite scene from their upcoming series Between Us was played. After the snippet played the actors reenacted the scene live for all the attendees. Boun and Prem talked with the Mc about filming their upcoming series. Honestly, I was a little more distracted with Prem playing with his extra long shirt.

Final Performance

After the final wardrobe change Boun and Prem sang a duet together. *Best Outfit Of The Night: All white tight fitted jackets with white pants covered with sparkly stones. First, Boun briefly played a musical instrument. The song was one that they have sung many times together and it showed with how comfortable they are with each other.

The virtual meeting concluded with both actors thanking all the fans for staying with them. Look out for their new project next year from Studio Wabi Sabi. To view the trailers for Between Us check it out here.

Prem The Journey Recap

Virtual Fan Meeting Experience

Thai drama actor Prem Warut Chawalitrujiwong held a retro-inspired showcase on March 27, 2021, called Prem The Journey.  This is the first showcase for the Thai boy’s love actor and will be the start of many more events in the coming months. 

The showcase was filled with various performances showcasing Prem’s musical taste.  With a total of nine songs, audience interactions, and virtual engagement questions, the 2-hour showcase flew by.

PRESHOW 

The showcase was held at the Ultra Arena Show DC for the in-person audience in Thailand.    Thankfully several fans in attendance posted videos of the soundcheck and press conference for international fans and for those who couldn’t attend.  *Hopefully in the future artists will designate a social media representative so that international fans can feel like they’re also a part of the preshow activities.   

SHOWTIME

Prem The Journey

The showcase began with a Prem singing a Thai song with a school-age and fun theme that included riding mini bikes with training wheels.  Followed by another Thai song and outfit change into an all-white jumpsuit that resembled cute paper dollies.

HIGHLIGHT

A little more than twenty minutes into the showcase fans of the Until We Meet Again series were delighted as Prem was joined onstage with his on-screen partner Boun Noppanut Guntachai.  Prem played the guitar and they sang a song by Daniel Caesar featuring H.E.R called Best Part.  The beginning of the song was sung in English, with a bridge mixture of Thai freestyle, closed with the original version. 

BounPrem

After the song concluded they talked about their experience so far as actors who have worked together.  Boun gave birthday wishes to Prem and a huge bouquet of red roses.  Followed by the OST for the Until We Meet Again series.  If you want to listen to the official MV you can check it out below courtesy of the Studio Wabi-Sabi Youtube channel.

MAKE IT RIGHT

A brief intermission was held with Thai actors Boom and Peak from the Make It Right Thai drama series. They entertained the audience with a song selection.  For fans of the series who haven’t seen the actors interact together in a while, it was a welcome intermission. 

VIRTUAL INTERACTIONS

After a quick outfit change Prem danced to I’m Bringing Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake.  Next, it was time for virtual interactions from the hundreds of fans who were watching.  Five lucky fans were chosen from the lucky fan video wall and were allowed to ask a question.  The last interaction came from another U.S. fan.  She showed her appreciation for all of Prem’s hard work, training, and dedication.      

EMOTIONAL ENDING

Through tears and laughter, Prem said a heartfelt thank you to his mother and people who supported him.  His sincere message was felt even though every word was not fully translated.  The credits started rolling and those fans that believed this was the ending were in for a surprise. 

Prem The Journey Final Bow

Prem came back on stage and a video message from fans played.  Yellow stars with his name written flashed across the screen from fans all over the world.  He thanked the fans once again while tearfully singing and concluded the showcase.  

This showcase was available for fans all over the world to enjoy thanks to MyFun.Live streaming platform.  The price for the ticket costs 960 baht ($30.75 USD).

Upcoming events for Boun and Prem include a fan meeting BounPrem is Real, 1 Day Together on April 18, 2021, in Thailand.  You can find more information here.
