Actress takes to social media to vent frustrations over relationship problems

THAILAND - Focus Jeerakul, one of the child stars of the cinema blockbuster "Fan Chan" a decade ago, has made a short film. This time, it is a video posted on her Facebook account in which she appeared emotional as she poured out her heartfelt words in front of the camera.

The plot is about her relationship with a male actor souring. Although she did not give his name, she mentioned that he was in the soap opera "Theppabutr Chutathep", thereby making it clear that she was referring to Tanin "Bomb" Manoonsilp.

Focus decided to go public with this personal problem after reaching the limits of her tolerance.

"This is a story of a woman who has put up with it, but can't any longer," she said in the video.

Focus knew that Manoonsilp was seeing another woman.

"He told her he wanted to break up with me but said my mum had asked him not to."

Focus was infuriated that her beau had used her mother as an excuse, given that her mother had encouraged her to break off from this rocky relationship.

In fact, Focus says, she told her guy - who she'd been seeing since September 2012 - to get lost, but he wouldn't.

Earlier on, she announced on a television programme that they were dating, only to be responded with a denial from his side, saying they were more like siblings. According to Focus, he was unwilling to go public with their relationship as he was afraid that it would affect his popularity.

"I just want you to act like a man and don't make any woman a victim again," she sobbed.

She recovered quickly and she chastised herself from crying.

Manoonsilp has not responded to Focus' weepy video.

The video has garnered more than 36,000 likes and has drawn more than 1,000 comments so far, most of which showed support for her.
