Thais amazed when they saw ‘hot’ white guy working as security guard in Bangkok

Photos of what netizens described as a “hot” security guard at Royal Lee Tower in Bangkok’s Bang Kapi district have been widely shared online this week as girls (and boys) express how they want him to guard their rooms.

But ladies, if you hire him, make sure you apply for a work permit for this guy.

Aside from teaching English and handing soap samples to Thai girls while standing in front of a shady cosmetics booth at the mall, Thais are really not used seeing foreigners having other jobs…especially low-paid jobs like security guards.

As white skin is associated with wealth and high social class in Asia, actually, some Thais don’t even believe the good-looking guy is actually a security guard.

“This is definitely a movie set!” Aum Jornjad wrote.

“He must be a son of the building’s owner,” Mr. Dark Light wrote.

The others either said he “could be a model” or excitedly discussed in the comment where they could find this guard.

As far as we know, he hasn’t come out to the public with social media accounts yet, which is probably a good thing since we don’t need another foreigner who’s famous for something simple, like guarding a door, or another one that can simply speak Thai like Jack Dek Farang or Sunny Burns.
