Man of destiny

Khwankaew Sumatchaya

Not every talented person becomes famous. And not every famous person is talented. But there’s no doubt that Sukrit Wisetkaew (Bie) has the talent to match his fame. Since coming second in The Star 3, he has released several singles and acted in a number of shows. With his style and charm, the 31-year-old has gained a huge fan base around the kingdom and overseas, especially in China.

From September 3, the actor will appear in the TV drama Thoe Kue Phromlikhit (You Are My Destiny) on Channel One 31, a remake of the Taiwanese series Fated to Love You. In the show, Bie plays Pawut, a handsome business tycoon who has a one night stand with Wanida (Esther Supreeleela), a nerdy secretary. Pawut immediately regrets his actions and wants to forget all about it. But when Wanida discovers that she’s pregnant, he realises that he must face the consequences of his actions.

S Weekly met up with Bie at the Channel One 31 office where he told us about his new drama and new music.

Do you believe in destiny?

Bie: Yes, I do. In Buddhism, there’s a belief in karma. What we’ve done in our past lives influences us in our present ones. This can be interpreted as destiny.

Have you seen the Taiwanese or Korean version of Fated to Love You?

Bie: I watched four or five episodes of each to get an idea of the mood and tone. I prefer the Korean version because the actor who plays my character adds more humour to the role. He doesn’t do what a normal person would do.

How does the Thai version differ from the others?

Bie: We’ve added a few details that Thai viewers will appreciate, but they have to experience it for themselves. I can’t describe it in words.

What do you think of your character, Pawut?

Bie: I don’t like who he is at the beginning. He only cares about power and money. But eventually you get to see his good side as his relationship with Wanida develops. He learns about love, sacrifice and helping others. She helps him to open his eyes.

You’ve been in many different shows. Which kind do you like best?

Bie: I like romantic comedies. They tend to be lighter than romantic dramas. I have fun acting out jokes or skits in a show. So when romance and comedy comes together, it’s perfect for me.

You have some new songs coming out. Can you tell us a bit about them?

Bie: The songs will feature on the soundtrack to You Are My Destiny. There are two new singles and three covers. They’re all basically easy-listening.

Have you ever had any unusual experiences as a singer?

Bie: I once performed at a high-class party. Most of the guests were elderly and didn’t know who I was. After I’d been singing for a while, I was told that there had been a complaint. A guest said we were too noisy and wanted us to keep it down. When I play a gig, I usually run around the stage and make a lot of noise. But for the rest of that show, I had to stay still.

You’ve been in showbiz for 11 years. How do you think you’ve changed?

Bie: As I get older, I become physically less active but mentally stronger. I’ve learned a lot, not just about work but about life as well. My life has changed completely since the beginning of my career. I started with nothing. I never had singing, dancing or acting lessons. But luckily I’ve always had a supportive team around me.
