Myanmar — Lately some photos of a good-looking guy in monk’s robes have been circulating the Internet. The said person is Paing Takhon, a 24-year-old Burmese actor, model, singer and entrepreneur.

What was ironic is that Paing Takhon was sharing about his 10-day stint as a monk. The heartthrob said in the caption that he had spent the start of 2021 as a monk.

“I felt so peaceful and knew myself more…” he added.

According to Mothership.sg, he became popular after a Jan 12 Instagram post of him became a subject of international interest.
