This your first time to act in a movie, and you are actually a musician. How do you feel?
Boo : I think everything is new for me. I totally love my job as a musician, but as an actor I have to play a new character, but I think a character in the movie is so much like myself. So it was fun.
Kao: The character is actually him, a 100% him.
This movie about the social networking. How often do you guys use social media to learn or for this movie or just to talk with ur fans?
Kao : I think everyone knows how important the internet for us. Before you go to sleep, before you eat anything, you always use your gadget. Its like you can not live without it. We all have two characters in our live, in the real world and our alter avatar, and this movie shows us that.
Did you find any difficulties to act as joe in this movie?
Kao: I think this difficult, it’s hard to understand how the director really want. If you see the movie it’s like a complicated. You have to see the movie before you want to understand it. When I shoot the scenes, I know nothing about what this movie is going to be. He did not let me know much about this movie. He just told me to play the script and be natural. Be free. But for me it was hard to do something I don’t know what I was really doing.
How did you manage the difficulties?
Kao : Sometime that is good and sometimes that’s more expectation. Sometimes that’s bad. But this movie always do take one, take two, take three to choose a good outcome and I have no problem with that. I think it’s good.
How do you think about this movie?
Kao : I think its so interesting for anyone who always use the social network. I think is important because everyone use social network.
Whats your next plan or porject? Have a new series or there’s a new movie again?
Kao : I think next on my job is single for my band. And focus on my band.
So, stay tune and make sure you’ll watch the movie once it’s on the nearest theater. “The movie is good and full with excitement, so you should watch it”, said Kao and Director Liawsirikun on the press conference.
