Fans of the BL couple from the drama Dangerous Romance, Perth Tanapon and Chimon Wachirawit, have voiced their protest against GMMTV on social media. The protest is based on the fans' perception that GMMTV has not treated the two actors fairly.
One of the fans' grievances is regarding international fan meetings. They believe that the promotion of these fan meetings was unprofessional, lacking the addition of the native language of the visited country or using only English. Additionally, late notifications contributed to the protest.
Aside from the fan meeting issues, fans demand more promotion for PerthChimon, whether through casting, music, and other avenues. They feel that both actors have worked hard but have not received adequate appreciation.
Fans also highlight the manager of PerthChimon, P'Add, who is perceived to handle too many GMMTV artists, with more than 20 under his management. Due to this, fans hope that GMMTV will promptly hire a new manager for optimal handling of other artists' work.
As of the writing of this article, the hashtag #GMMTVTreatPerthChimonbetter has surpassed over 15 thousand posts on Twitter. The hashtag has become a trending topic in Thailand and several other countries.
PerthChimon is one of the most popular BL couples in Thailand, and their drama, Dangerous Romance, was one of the most popular BL dramas in 2023.
The protest by PerthChimon fans indicates their deep concern for both actors. They hope that GMMTV will hear their demands and treat PerthChimon more fairly.
As of now, GMMTV has not provided an official response regarding the protests by PerthChimon fans.
