James Jirayu doesn’t want to be dragged into politics; Baitoey a fan of James
Another person has been dragged and linked to politics again, and it’s none other than overnight superstar “James Jirayu” after someone exposed a picture of him at “Blue Sky Television” station. Some consider this proof that James has already picked the party to side with. When James took a break from his rehearsal for “Meta Presents James Ji Monkey King Fan Meeting,” we took the opportunity to have James give a clear explanation for these concerns. Along with the case in which looktung sexy singer “Baitoey R-Siam” showing signs of being so pleased having met James and taking a picture of him to post on instagram. She also claims that she’s a fanclub of his for a long time now. This is what James has to say…
The story behind that picture is that the picture was from 2 years ago…At that time I was still in school, and P’Pik (Charnchalard) my personal manager works at Chula in Academics. I went with P’Pik to thank the media, because at that time they helped promote work for Chula’s Academics. It was like P’Pik dragged me along to help with his work. It was to give me practice. We also went to all the other media stations too.
Some people are exposing that this picture is linked to politics
Honestly that’s a really old picture. I’m really too young to talk about that subject. If asked if I’m startled? I don’t feel anything of it, because that picture is really old. And also it is something I can easily explain as to why I was there. If asked if it bores me that people are trying to link things…honestly, I want everyone to know the truth, because that picture was from so long ago.
Are you afraid that people will misunderstand you?
I say it’s a must that they should read my explanation first. I really want everyone to understand that it was for work I did from 2 years ago. I want everyone to read and understand this.
Does it shock you that some people threaten to ban you, won’t watch your movie or support any of your work any longer?
Yes a bit. Any moment now, P’Pik’s camp will clarify the details. As for the fanclub, they`re already aware of the details as it is because I’m always in contact with them, explaining to thes. They understand. They also helped to clarify the situation on the fan page too.
Are your family members concerned about this? Or have they spoken on news at all?
Yes they have my family and P’Pik. We’re trying our very best to rectify the problem, because it’s a picture was from so long ago. We want to clarify and explain so people can understand the complete truth.
Are you afraid that this might have an affect on your work in the future?
I think probably not, because it’s just something that was randomly linked together. It’ll have little influence.
So you can assure that you’re in the middle (neutral)?
That’s correct. I’m really too young to talk about this subject. Please don’t try to make any links.
We want to ask about how Baitoey posted on instagram that she`s impressed by you
By chance I came to rehearse dancing for my fan meeting, and P’Baitoey by chance she also came to rehearse. I was sitting there eating rice waiting for my turn to practice and P’Baitoey came up that’s when we saw each other, so we had a chance to chat.
And she told you she was a part of your fanclub?
I’m very happy that P’Baitoey follows my work, because I’ve always followed her work as well. I know her boyfriend P’Man too, because we worked together in the lakorn “Khun Chai Puttipat.” I’m really lucky to have the opportunity to see P’Baitoey. It makes me happy.
If you had the opportunity to, would you go to one of her concerts to support her?
I’ve had the chance the follow her work all this time already. If I have the opportunity I would probably go too.
How does it make you feel that many stars are impressed by you, understand you more than before because in the past you had negative news regarding this?
I’m really pleased. Well honestly, I want people to get to know me, once they get to know me, not long and they’ll love me on their own (smiles).
