It was expected of Nadech to make it to the top of the list and of course my fave veteran singer Bird too. I was surpised to see Weir’s ranking. I thought he was higher on the list! 😛

    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 🙂

    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)
