**** want to thank Mandy for sending me this magazine & also want to thank Yuy for trying to take photos of the pages for me… you guys are awesome!!!!
I have to be true to myself that even though Bie-Sukrit Wisetkaew or Bie the Star made a name for himself from the Star search contest… he is getting more and more popular. He was able to reach a super-stardom as a dancer, an actor… with so many works to show for… and lots and lots of awards from various institutions for confirmation… and I still carry “I couldn’t careless” attitude towards him… I was not into him until I had an opportunity to meet and talk to him in person…
Bie greeted me with a big smile and said “Hello” from far away. After I had a heart to heart conversation with Bie… “I couldn’t careless” attitude disappeared. I am not praising him. Bie knows how to talk… he is a very straight forward person… he is not a faker… he has plenty of jokes to pull… just like what everyone said… when Bie is on stage at a concert, he is one of the professional entertainers in the industry.
This is not a candid camera… this is not a paparazzi… but starting from this line on, fan-clubs and non fan-clubs of Bie the Star don’t go steaming off… Bie is about to open up his private space for us to see and to feel… for one whole day starting Na But Now!
“Na But Now and I am about to release a new song… as for lakorn, there is Nud gub Nud sitcom. My annual work-plan is not quite finalized, yet. But I am doing some prep-works, getting my body in shape, going to fitness, getting additional training on singing and acting, etc… preparing myself for a new project that is about to come. At the same time, I continue to work on a new single after Na But Now… we are planning to work on songs continuously.
I have done many things… now, I want to fix certain part(s) to make it better.. i.e. my singing, acting and dancing… some projects are new to me… as a result, I have to be well prepared and have to get more training to keep up…
“Back then, I was a shy person… afraid to express myself but when I got into the entertaining industry, I had to be able to express myself… meeting famous people, talented people… the fundamental of moving toward success is, you need to be able to express yourself; otherwise, you will never be good enough… you will never be able to sing or act, or dance… therefore, you have to get yourself out of that spot. It took awhile to get myself out. Once you are out, the next step is to open your mind”
“The thing was I really wanted to be a singer. I liked watching MV. I liked to listen to music. I also liked to listen to various radio programs. I did this every day. Back then, cassette tapes were quite expensive. I didn’t have money (to buy them). I would wait for new song released to radio and I would record it. I didn’t know which song would be playing but as soon as the D.J. said “here is the song”, I would press record right away. In addition, I always wanted to move up my family status… for us to live better and easier life. These two things made me inched little by little towards singing… then slowly moving on to dancing… then, to acting.”
“During the Star search contest, the 8th people round… when my name was called… my feelings right at that particular second was exactly like a beauty pageant. I would say “hey… why do you have to cry? are you crazy?”. But when I was in that same situation, I felt like the winner of a beauty pageant. There were tears in my eyes. My knees buckled. I crumbled down to the floor and cried… Wow!… so, it was really happening to me! It was not play acting. People said when someone is about to drown… the moment you think you are going to die… you would see images… you would think of your parents, your relatives, or things that you haven’t have a chance to do… you start to worry about many things and everything.
Right at that moment, I thought about my parents, about being a singer, about work, school, etc…. then I asked myself… Is this really happening? Am I really the last person? did they really call my name? everything was moving so fast… thousand things came to my head at the same time… very hard to explain the feelings”.
I really wanted to be an Engineer. But when I chose to become a singer, I had to let go of being an engineering for the time being. When it’s the right time, I will go back and be an engineer. I still talk to many of my friends (who are engineers)… once all of us get an MBA, we all work and have money, we will get together again to work on a project.
