'Dark Blue Kiss' Actor MEK JIRAKIT Says His Favorite Filipino Term Is "Sanaol"
Boys Love or BL series have taken the Philippines by storm and apart from the hit 2gether: The Series, the Thai drama Dark Blue Kiss is also a favorite among Pinoy viewers.
And did you know that one of its stars Mek Jirakit is already gaining a strong following in the country? The 25-year-old actor is extremely active on social media and interacts with his fans on Twitter. We're also pretty surprised to find out that he's actually trying to learn the Filipino language!
When asked by a fan what his favorite Filipino term is, Mek simply replied with the popular expression "sanaol".

We're not quite sure if he knows exactly what "sanaol" means but Mek would later reveal that MNL48 member Abby who he follows on Instagram and his "lookalike" Luis Manzano are responsible for giving him Tagalog lessons. VJ Luis and Abby, you got some explaining to do!
Thanks so for Abby and Luis— Mek Jirakit (@jirakitth_c) June 2, 2020
And boy, he sure wasn't kidding when he said he loves the term "sanaol". Expressing his love for his Filipino fans, Mek tweeted: "I love you sanaol"
