Ganada Entertainment‘s 7-member Korean-Thai boy group THE7 (also known as THE SEVEN and formerly known as SEVEN STARS) has been going viral on the video-sharing app since they debuted on January 29, 2023, with their digital single “Get Loose.”
THE7’s Opp specifically has garnered attention from netizens due to his rap in “Get Loose.” It instantly became a trend…
thanks for this part 🧦😂
Yet, some netizens couldn’t help but feel that Opp seemed familiar. The reason why? The 27-year-old originally debuted as an actor.

Opp is also known as “Opp” Weerapong Odhoeng. He made his debut as an actor in 2020 with a guest role of Fiat Phatchara in the Thai BL series En Of Love: TOSSARA.
Gun Tossakan is a very bright and tall medical faculty freshman who has been in love with the popular third-year Engineering major and head hazer, Bar Sarawat, ever since he was in high school. Although at that time Gun was unable to confess his feelings because of the promise he made to his mum to not date until he passed high school, once he enters university fate has very different plans for him. The world is small, and a university is smaller. Being popular students at the same university leads Gun and Bar to collide with each other again and again until Gun succeeds in wooing Bar. Or maybe Bar too has a confession to make?

His next role is his most well-known, as he appeared as Inntouch, a supporting role, in the 2022 Thai BL drama series Secret Crush on You. This drama is set in a university.
Secret Crush on You is a Thai BL series about a school misfit and his infatuation with the campus jock. The lead has an obsessive crush on a popular university student. He decorates his bedroom with surveillance photos, treasured mementoes, and even a life-sized pillow. Surprisingly, his beloved idol starts paying attention to him. Their dynamic changes from a secret admiration to a blossoming love.

Viewers loved his relationship with Daisy (“Nutt” Witsarut Khakham). They were a fan-favorite OTP!

Opp’s final T-Drama role before debuting as an idol was Ice in Sing Again last year. Appropriately, this drama focuses on music!
Twins Sol and Sun are almost as different as night from day, but one thing they have in common is their mutual love for Piano, a girl who moved into the neighborhood when they were all kids and who they’ve been besties with ever since. They also share a dream of making it big in the music industry and together they barely manage to get into the Plus Artist Academy contest that’s on the hunt for new Thai talent. A twist of fate, however, smashes their dreams, and turns Sun and Piano against Sol who got hired to be a member of a new Thai boy band by the Empire agency. But all isn’t as it seems. Can the friends reconcile or is it too late to forgive when so much hurt has happened?

Last but not least, in 2022, Opp competed as a contestant on Ganada Entertainment’s audition program Seven Stars, in which the Thai members were chosen for THE7.
We hope that Opp continues acting too like many idol-actors in the K-Pop industry!
