"Brother of the Year" stars surprised by their popularity in Malaysia

"Brother of the Year" stars Nichkhun Horvejkul (Nichkhun), Sunny Suwanmethanont (Sunny) and Urassaya Sperbund (Yaya) were greeted with a throng of screaming fans the moment they ascended from the red carpet to the stage set up at the concourse area of IOI City Mall yesterday evening, where the cast along with director Vithaya Thongyuyong (alternatively known as Witthaya Thongyooyong) attended the mall appearance event to promote their hit rom-com. Since this was Sunny and Yaya's first time in Malaysia, they were pleasantly surprised to learn of their immense popularity in the country. Sunny, especially, had been worried that no one would recognise him. Nichkhun, on the other hand, already feels at home in the country since he's visited many times previously for events related to 2PM, the South Korean boyband he is part of. Here's what took place at the mall appearance:

Nichkhun said he wants to play a mafia one day. Think he can play the role?


That Korean placard obviously means these are Nichkhun fans.


Yaya and Sunny have plenty of fans in Malaysia too!


Nichkhun, Yaya and Sunny are definitely well known even outside of Thailand.

Sunny could give these girls some pointers, since he spent quite some time
in the movie dancing away to Thai folk music.
