  1. weir should be number 1 or if not nadech~ mario and yup where is great ~ push ~~omg~~ and james j
    i just cannot believe how they get paid~~ That’s why a lot of people would like to travel to Thai because of how inexpensive~~ hmmm now i am thinking of saving more and meet weir. Lol

  2. I’ve never heard of Bird, but #2 and #4 aren’t surprising. Love those two.

  3. I was surprise that Weir was #6. I thought will be more likely #1 or #2 and Nadech right after. Who is BIRD THONGCHAI? I never seen him before and he definitely strikes the youngsters. There is no Push on the list…too bad! He even went internationally. They should pay him more 🙂

    • You don’t know who is Bird Thongchai? He’s like the Michael Jackson of Thailand. Everyone in Thailand no matter young or old know P’Bird 😀 One of my all time fave singer.

  4. And I thought I was the only that curious about this. Haha. I always google highest pay actorsand actress in thai each year just to see how was #1.

  5. I’m actually shocked with Weir’s salary, I thought he will be after Nadech because they are always after the other in rankings normally. also i didn’t expect Boy to be in this list even though i regarded him as high profile but nit as much, also Cee Siwat I rarely see him in lakorns

    PS: coud you find if there’s for girls too (thanks in advance)

  6. Thanks for the list! Wow, that’s a lot of money even after their agency gets a bite. For the ladies, im sure Yaya is tops?! I see her in so many ads!

      • I C. Do you think their pay is based on popularity (ratings and public response to their activities) or something else?

        • I’m sure it is to some extent. Nadech would be #1 in terms of fanbase.
          But Cee Siwat? That was a surprise to me. You rarely see him in Dara news or awards ceremonies. He’s not really high profile.
          I’m already wondering if I could pay for Weir to fly in and skim my pool or something. Shirtless, of course. 🙂

          • LOL! Good idea! I’m going to start saving! Your comment reminded me of this one scene of Push in Stairway to Stardom.

          • Just start a Patreon for this event and I’m sure you would have a crowd poolside.

          • Lol. If only! WOW, I would think Weir would be number one, I’m beyond shocked!! Or like you said, Nadech number one, Weir number two, based on Nadech’s fanbase alone….. I’ll go back to my own little world where it is….. Weir with no shirt on will be there, of course 😉 Pong and Peter will be joining him!

          • We could totally raise enough money to fly him over, lol. Party at Shuk’s house!

          • love your comment ~ i thought about that too. i just couldn’t believe how they get paid when we all see them and watched them.
