KinnPorsche Manila fan meet can only be described as a highly-successful venture. The cast of the popular Thai BL series KinnPorsche held their much-anticipated fan meeting in the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Reports said the tickets ranging from PhP1,500 – PhP7,000 (about USD140) were immediately sold out. Amidst the cheers and applause, one of the cast raised the LGBTQ+ flag in a show of support and solidarity.
P’Tong raises the LGBTQ+ flag!
Thanayut Thakoonauttaya (nicknamed Tong), or P’Tong raised the LGBTQ+ flag in a show of support and solidarity for the community and their fans. He further said, he’s proud of the LGBTQ+ community and appreciated the support for the series and the cast.
P’Tong plays one of the most colorful characters in the series – offering both comedic and dramatic moments that further spiced up what is already a hot-to-trot show.
KinnPorsche Manila Fan Meet reception
Some attendees described the venue as ‘electric’ and having a fiesta atmosphere – a mode where the audience appears like attending a family gathering with plenty of food and drinks.
Many fans were bothered by the heat, saying ‘they worry about the cast’, but everything appears fine and there are no reports of any ‘untoward’ incidents. One of the fans said:
When the fan meet was first announced, I saved enough money to get a nice place inside the venue. We often visit SM MOA in anticipation of the meeting. I’m from Baguio city, so it’s quite far from Manila, and my friends and I slept in a relative’s house in Caloocan (quite a bit far from MOA), so that we come prepared.An attendee of KinnPorsche Manila Fanmeet

An old-timer BL fan way back in 2007. I started out loving BL after watching the Takumi-kun series from Japan, went on collecting BL manga, and watched old BL anime such as Junjou Romantica and the likes. Love of Siam allow me to transition into Thai, while Amphetamine gave me glimpses of Taiwanese BL magic. I love to write reviews and I’m one of the administrators of Psycho Weird.
