Phakphum Romsaithong and Nattawin Wattanagitiphat are Thai actors and co-stars of the breakout TV show “KinnPorsche.” Better known by their nicknames “Mile” and “Apo,” respectively, the pair have become sought-after celebrity guests at fashion events across Southeast Asia. Each actor has amassed more than 3.5 million followers on Instagram, in part for their roles in KinnPorsche, a 2022 action romance which follows a mafia boss (Romsaithong) who falls in love with his bodyguard (Wattanagitiphat). The show became a hit among fans of BL drama, a genre of film and television featuring gay themes between male actors (‘boys’ love’) that is increasingly popular in several Asian markets. In 2023, Christian Dior appointed both actors as brand ambassadors after inviting them to the brand’s show in India earlier that year. Either together or individually, they have appeared on the cover of numerous fashion magazines in Asia, including the Thai editions of Vogue and GQ.
Romsaithong was born in 1992 in Kalasin, Thailand. He got his start in music videos and auditioned for a Thai reality singing competition. Before his role in “KinnPorsche,” he starred in multiple Thai dramas such as “Melodies of Life: My Name is Single” and “Lady Twenty.” Wattanagitiphat was born in 1994 in Hua Hin, Thailand. He did modelling before turning to acting in 2015, working as a contract actor for Thailand’s Channel 3 for several years, including on the hit series “Sud Kaen Saen Rak.” In 2023, the two actors starred together in the mystery thriller film “Man Suang.”
