Thai mafia romance drama KinnPorsche The Series premiered six weeks ago, but with the release of every new episode, the BL drama is getting more and more famous across the globe. Meet the stunning cast of KinnPorsche The Series who are taking over the Internet here!
From a gritty storyline to a picture-perfect cast including Apo Nattawin and Mile Phakphum among others, iQIYi’s first original Thai drama is well on its way to becoming one of the top BL dramas of all time.
What sets KinnPorsche The Series apart from the other dramas of the same genre is its treatment of the characters, and the honest and raw portrayals of the nuances of human desire.
Be it Kinn, Porsche, Vegas or Pete, every character of the drama is brought to life by the utmost acting precision of the cast. That has resulted in an impressive rating of 9.2 on iMDB and ever-rising global popularity.
Meet KinnPorsche The Series Cast
Based on the novel of the same name, KinnPorsche The Series depicts the world of Kinn, the second son of a mafia family who brings college student Porsche Pachara (Apo Nattawin) as his main bodyguard.
As the two lock horns but also fall for each other, their world takes a catastrophic turn.
Meet all the main characters of KinnPorsche The Series below.
Mile Phakphum Romsaithong is portraying the lead role of Kinn Anakinn Theerapanyakul. The 30-year-old Thai actor is also a terrific singer, who is often called a ‘multi-talented ace’ by his fans.
Speaking of his role as Kinn, Mile tells TeenVogue: “Playing the character of Kinn was a very natural thing. Kinn actually has a lot of charm, and one of those charms is he is very clear about [his sexuality]. And he’s very clear about who he is. Kinn is very admirable in the way he conducts his life.”
Apo Nattawin Wattanagitiphat is the ever-charming Porsche in KinnPorsche The Series. His life takes 180-degree when he comes to work for Kinn.
The 28-year-old actor is no stranger to action projects as he has acted in a number of Thai shows like Kai Mook Mungkorn Fire (2018) and Chart Suer Pun Mungkorn (2018) among others.
Just like Mile, Apo has rendered Porsche with his striking individuality. He describes Porsche as someone who “follows his heart. He just does what he wants to do.”
Apo also sheds light on how KinnPorsche The Series helps in understanding our reality, which is often grey rather than being black and white.
Apo tells TeenVogue: “If the viewers watch our show with empathy, they of course will [learn] something because in the way we present the characters, it is the harsh reality of life, and we as human beings are not black and white. Everything is grey.”
Along with the lead cast, the supporting cast of KinnPorsche The Series has won the viewers’ hearts with their stellar acting.
Bible Wichapas Sumettikul is portraying the role of Vegas, the antagonist who is the eldest son of the second mafia family.
Bible as Vegas is dark, suave and swoon-worthy, who has charmed his way through the hearts of the show’s viewers.
Jakapan Putta (Build), who plays Pete, has also garnered praise for doing true justice to the character.
Along with Build, Jeff Satur as Kim (the youngest son of Theerapanyakul clan), Nutthasid Panyagarm (Notd) as Big, Tinnasit Isarapongporn (Barcode) as Porchay (Porsche’s young brother) and last but not the least, Nakhun Screaigh (Perth) as Ken are the BL fans’ new favourite cast as they gush over the stunning chemistry of the whole team on screen!
