“Brother of the Year” is a unique romcom turn family drama that reveals how a straight-A younger sister Jane (Yaya Sperbund) lives with her brother Chut (Sunny Suwanmethanont). While enjoying his wild bachelor life, Chut will need to learn to take care of himself when Jane is about to get married to her half-Japanese boyfriend, Moji (Nichkhun Horvejkul). Siblings have an unbreakable bond and that love for family can only resolve all indifferences. “Brother of the Year” takes on a realistic portrayal of the meddling problem of an older brother who acts as a nemesis to his sisters that a lot of people will be able to relate to some if not all aspects of the story and learn something from this heartwarming film.

In Thailand, “Brother of the Year” garners in about 250 Million Baht (approximately 7.8 million USD) and touted as the highest-grossing Thai movie that has been released across Asia. The movie has also been no.1 in every country where it was released for the opening week including the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. After producing the mega hit “Bad Genius” last year, Thai production studio GDH hopes to follow the international success of high school heist thriller, which became a historic hit in China, earning $41 million. “Brother of the Year” is set to premiere in China soon.
In the Philippines, the media and fans graciously welcomed the cast, including Sunny, Manasaporn Chanchalerm (also known as Proy/Proymon, she plays “Dear”, an intern at Chut’s company) and director Vithaya Thongyuyong during a Press Con and advance screening on August 16, 2018. From the film’s laugh-out-loud moments to drama about communication breakdown, comedy-drama “Brother of The Year” promises to take sibling rivalry to a whole new level.


“I did my best and put my all into this film. And I’m so glad that I was able to cast Sunny, Nichkhun, and Yaya in this film. Not only that they had such a great chemistry together, but also they could portray their characters and convey the story beyond what I wrote in the script,” said Director Vithaya Thongyuyong.
Sunny told: After I got to read the screenplay, I knew that I could not pass up this opportunity. Stories about siblings are easily relatable to many others and me. I believe that most of us would hardly express our love to our siblings.
