Born and raised in Thailand, Minnie is known for being a member of the girl group (G)I-DLE and for her role in the Netflix series So Not Worth It. Having grown up in a family of musicians, it is no surprise that she's thriving in the music scene.
In this month's issue, the singer, songwriter, and actress gets comfortable with #legend and shares with us some fun life stories and her journey in becoming the successful idol she is now.
On the challenges in her first acting experience, she saidf: "It's kind of hard to be half myself and half someone else. I needed to build up the confidence to be that other character."
She added, "My coach would ask me to look in the mirror at myself and curse very loudly because he needed me to be confident when I did so. I'd look at him and say, 'Can I actually say that loudly?' and he would reply, 'Just do it!' At first I was uncomfortable cursing all the time but after I worked on it and did it a lot for the show, I kind of got used to it."
On missing her fans, Minnie shared, "I understand that it's very hard to meet in person now but I hope that I can meet them again soon because they give me a lot of energy during a show or when I'm on stage. It's totally different when fans are there or not. We need our performances to be very energetic and very confident in front our fans, but after Covid, we couldn't perform in front of our fans and it felt very empty."
On how she spends her birthdays, the (G)I-DLE member said, "I spent those birthdays with my group members and friends in Korea. I was always working on my birthday. Like last year, I performed in a show and after that I went to my friend's house to celebrate my birthday. I spent my birthdays with my Thai friends Lisa [of BLACKPINK] and Bambam [of GOT7] and last year Shu Hua, our youngest member, made me a cheesecake just because I had mentioned that I'd like one."
