#FangirlGigs: Gulf Kanawut’s first solo fan meeting was a night full of kilig and fangirl delights

By Hannah Mallorca Published Oct 10, 2022 9:02 pm

Imagine being set up to go on a blind date with someone you barely know—but they have the potential to be great. And then it turns out, the mystery human has all it takes to exceed your expectations. This is what Gulf Kanawut’s first solo fan meeting felt like.

I knew Gulf Kanawut from his TharnType: The Series drama but I had to re-discover him as soon as his solo fan meet in the Philippines was announced. From then on, I realized that he’s a shining star with lots of charm and talent to offer. And his press conference and fan meet on October 2 were proof that I was definitely missing out.

It’s been days since Gulf made a splash in the Philippines but we still can’t get enough of his breathtaking visuals, heart-fluttering smile, and undeniable charm. Allow us to revisit the highlights of his solo fan meet below.

Gulf making the media and fangirls swoon 

Avid Gulf Kanawut fans—or Phiballs—know that the Thai superstar is a good-looking man. But nothing compares to the shock of seeing him in person in the intimate press conference and fan meet. 

Pictures and videos don’t do Gulf’s visuals justice if we do say so ourselves.

Gulf admitting that he wants to be a “bad boy”

You’ve heard it from Gulf Kanawut himself, folks. The actor himself revealed in the press conference and fan meeting that he wants to be a bad boy in his next acting project.

Since he kept on talking about his desire to be a villain, it looks like Gulf is determined to become a baddie in the future. 

Gulf setting the stage on fire with Why You So Serious

There’s no better place to show off your many talents than a fan meet—and Gulf did just that. The Thai superstar set the New Frontier Theater stage on fire with a fiery performance of his song Why You So Serious.

Gulf confessing his love for Sarah Geronimo

Sorry, Phiballs. It seems that Gulf’s Filipina ideal type is none other than Sarah Geronimo. 

 

If Gulf has the chance to work with Pinoy actors, he told the media that he would love to work with Sarah. He even had the chance to show off his inner Popster when he was asked to dance along to Tala at the fan meet. 

With the help of host Kring Kim, he was able to get the steps right in one go. Hopefully, we can witness Gulf and Sarah sharing the screen together in a project soon.

Gulf dropping hints for his upcoming projects

Of course, it won’t be a Gulf Kanawut fan meet if he didn’t drop a spoiler for his future projects. The actor revealed that he’s set to star in the upcoming series The Famous Gentleman and The Makeup Artist

According to Gulf, both dramas are exciting opportunities since it shows different sides of him as an actor. He also shared that fans should be ready for the second episode of The Makeup Artist since something “exciting” will happen. 

Meanwhile, Gulf said the Famous Gentleman will revolve around the “second generation” of the original series.

Gulf channeling his inner John Lloyd Cruz and Piolo Pascual

Perhaps, the highlight of Gulf’s fan meet was the Thai actor showing off his acting chops when he was asked to reenact scenes from One More Chance and Starting Over Again

The Thai actor was given a few minutes to internalize Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) and Marco (Piolo Pascual) before acting alongside Kring—much to the fans’ delight.
