Recently, a fan of the Thai actor, Phuwin Tangsakyuen, stumbled upon a listing on a Chinese online shopping site selling signed polaroid photos of the actor at exorbitant prices. These photos were priced between 1000 CNY to 2000 CNY, which is approximately $USD136 to $USD273. The post quickly went viral and garnered criticism from various quarters, with many deeming this action as disrespectful to Phuwin as an idol. In a circulated video, several individuals suspected to be fans of Phuwin can be seen interacting with the actor. Phuwin is also seen amiably accommodating his fans' requests for photos and autographs.
Phuwin also urged his fans not to engage in such behavior. He hoped that his fans would respect him and not exploit his kindness. In response to this, the online shopping site has removed the listings of Phuwin's polaroid photos being sold at exorbitant prices. Nevertheless, the actions of these individuals remain a valuable lesson for all of us. As fans, we should be able to respect our idols by not exploiting their kindness and by honoring their privacy.
ผมว่าการที่คนๆหนึ่งกำลังถ่ายเมนตัวเองอยู่แล้วเห็นศลปอีกคนกำลังขึ้นวินแล้วมาขอถ่ายรูป+ลายเซ็นแล้วเอาไปลงขายอีกผมว่ามันไม่ให้เกียรติทั้งเมนตัวเองที่ยื่นดูอยู่และวินที่เขาเสียเวลารอนะครับ— phuwintang (@phuwintang) September 25, 2023
