    Thai People -pics for educational purposes

    How about some pictures of famous Thai people so we know who we are looking at when we hear the news. There are loads of faces I see regularly on TV but I have no idea who those people are.

    Try to get clear pictures. This is for educational purposes only. You can include anyone who is in the media or well known.

    I'll start this by posting a few well known faces:

    Samak Sundaravej, Current Prime minister



    Thaksin Shinawatra, former Prime Minister




    Chamlong Srimuang, Thai activist, former politician and supporter of the Buddhist sect Santi Asoke

    Duangchalerm with his father, Chalerm Yubamrung.
    "Duangchalerm was charged in his absence, in 2001, with shooting police sergeant Suvichai Rodvimut in the head at point blank range while other men held him down. "

    ^^ He's also had the rank of Commander of the Supreme Commander-in-Chiefs, Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Commanders and Commander-in-Chief of the Supreme Commanders in his tenure.

    But his medals were from the Boy's Brigade. The big dangling one is for swimming.

    Phumphuang 'Peung' Duangjan, the Queen of Luk Thung ,music. (deceased)



    Story:
    Thai Country Music - Pumpuang Duangjan

    "
    Look Thung (Thai Country Music) wasn't always the saucy sexy blend of glamour which it is today. It used to be all very tame and bland until a shooting star appeared on the stage changing Look Thung for a new generation. It all happened in the mid-1980s."
