Tony Jaa is not Khmer. He is Kuy.
I don't think pornstars are what we would call idols/celebrities because they're underground stars and no one really knows them
These pornstars have a bigger audience than most of these so called celebrity. Who knows or really cares for Franciois Chau. Mention the Thai sisters to a dude and he will know who she is.
I don't know...there are lots of them and I didn't even know them (not that I'm a regular) until you posted their names lol
Did you google the names? I bet you a lot of kcers did. haha
Ying Yong is a ethnic Khmer from Sisaket, Thailand. He is in Thai soaps and sing lukthung country songs. Most of his songs are in Thai/Lao but he has some songs in Khmer.
In this vid he sings a khmer song at the end.
From Surin is the Thai fighter Buakaw. He is Khon Khmer. A lot of Khmers claim Tony Jaa but he is ethnic Kuy. Buakaw is Khon Khmer and people in Surin are proud of him.
I'm not familiar with Kuy.thank you for the correction.
So he's Kuy from Surin.and has Thai citizenship.
They live side by side with Khmers in that area in Thailand. It's funny how Khmers, Thai and Lao all claimed Tony Jaa but he was none of their ethnicity. People from that area are confused because everyone is mix. My fam from that area assimilated and they are now Lao speakers.
Good info on Kui
How many ethnicities live in Surin?
Thanks.I watch many of his videos.love the host
KC are kuy khmer-surin? cuz speakin of kuyyy, i forgot kong kuy.. is he khmer or khmer-surin??
Khmer and Lao dominate Surin. Also Kuy and Chinese. Siem(Central Thai) are a minority in the area. Funny how Khmers from SrokKhmer born in Surin claim to be Thai but the Central Thai are not even in the area. The Lao which the Thai label as Isan are taking over the Khmer areas. We had a big bonn and have family reunion last year in 2010. The fam from Sisaket came over and the youth only communicated with the father through English.
singer Kong Kuy is Khmer. Most of the singers on CVM are from Phum Prasat in Surin. That is a Khmer dominated area.
