“Princess Yontararak”: Here’s How (G)I-DLE Minnie Becomes a Member of Thailand’s High Society
Although Minnie earns her status independently as an idol, songwriter, actress, etc., her family background will never be surprising.
While many K-pop idols are born without financial hardship, including Minnie, the “My Bag” singer is no ordinary rich star.
In particular, she is a member of Thailand’s “High Society” (Hi-So) class, people whose families were extremely wealthy and influential in Thailand.
Typically, Hi-So members are often seen wearing designer items from luxury department stores, and their family has a strong political network.
To be part of this class, your family must have a net worth of at least $7 million.
Indeed Mini belongs to this class. His grandfather owned luxury resorts. She was also born to parents where her father is the group president of the YMCA in Thailand and her mother is a pianist who owns an upscale resort.
Minnie’s uncles and aunts also have unusual backgrounds. One of her uncles is the legendary Thai classical pianist Nat Yontararak, and her aunt Sugar Yontararak is the great-granddaughter of the last king of Lanna, the northern kingdom of Thailand.
Hence, Minnie’s nickname “Princess Yontararak” it makes sense given her family background.
Even more surprising was that Minnie left her high status in Thailand to pursue her dream of becoming a K-pop idol. In the context of this, Minnie has always wanted to be a singer since she was a child, which led her to record at G-Vocal Studio in Thailand.
At that time, the idol aspirant’s teacher advised her to try auditioning for Cube Entertainment. Fortunately it passed! She then moved to Korea to train for about three years and finally debuted as (G)I-DLE.
