Perth Thanapon and Chimon Wachirawit’s latest series, ‘Dangerous Romance’ is already ongoing, but do you remember the last time they shared the screen with each other in ‘Never Let Me Go’?
Here are 3 ways to see just how talented PerthChimon are, as highlighted by the shift from their ‘Never Let Me Go’ characters, Chopper and Ben, to their ‘Dangerous Romance’ characters, Kanghan and Sailom!
1. From Side to Center Stage
The most obvious change is how Perth and Chimon have become the leads in ‘Dangerous Romance’ after simply supporting the leads of ‘Never Let Me Go,’ Pond Naravit, and Phuwin Tangsakyuen. This has allowed the duo to show off their acting prowess more, thanks to an increased number of scenes. While they were able to give us a glimpse of their talent in the earlier series, such as Perth excellently portraying Chopper’s inner conflict that dealt with his father being in opposition to his cousin, Nuengdiao, and Chimon performing similarly well, portraying Ben’s struggles as a closeted LGBT student, they have already begun to display even more aspects of the characters they play such as Chimon convincingly portraying Sailom’s wit and Perth putting Kanghan’s ruthlessness on full display.
2. Varied Character Personalities And Acting Range
Building off of the previous point, the many differences in the personalities of the characters in both series show how much range these two actors have and how they can play roles with such contrasting personalities. While Ben was shown as timid and afraid to stand up for himself, such as when he let Nuengdiao take the fall when a photo of their kiss was being spread, Sailom is the complete opposite. As the school’s star student, Sailom’s intelligence clearly goes well past just his studies, with a sharp wit reminiscent of Chimon’s past character, Wave, from ‘The Gifted.’ This was best shown by how he was able to prevent Kanghan from framing him for credit card theft by returning the card Kanghan had planted on him. Speaking of Kanghan, he, too, could not be more distinct from Chopper. While Chopper very clearly cared about people in his life, particularly those close to him such as his cousin Nuengdiao, it would be difficult to say the same about Kanghan, at least given what we’ve seen of him so far. A ruthless school bully with a huge ego is quite the far cry from Chopper, who, while not perfect, would look like an angel next to Kang. It’s clear as day when the characters from both series are compared that Perth and Chimon have such range in their acting that they can portray characters who are as different from each other as night and day.
