Up made his debut in the entertainment industry through the 2015 film “Gifted”. From his first appearance, Up already captivated many female fans with his impressive height of 180cm and flawless facial features, including white skin, gentle eyes, double eyelids, tall nose, thick lips, and manly jawlines. 

In particular, he caught the eyes of Korean viewers for his Korean looks. Many Korean netizens pointed out that Up has Park Bo Gum eyes, Nam Joo Hyuk sharp nose, and Park Seo Joon strong jawlines.

Perhaps because of such reactions, Up has also appeared on various Korean broadcasts. Up joined tvN’s “Babel 250”, which aired from July 11 to September 27th of 2016, as a regular cast. At that time, many people who watched the show thought he was Korean.

In addition to his handsomeness, Up is also famous as an ‘eomchina’ (a slang to refer to an outstanding boy with whom parents often compare their own child) in Thailand.

After studying management communication at the Communication Art Faculty of Chulalongkorn University, a prestigious university in Thailand that is comparable to Seoul National University in Korea, Up went to England to earn a master’s in International Relations and Diplomacy at SOAS University of London. The actor is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in the Faculty of Political Science at Chulalongkorn University.
