August Band (The August) (Thai: ออกัส ) is a Thai boy band that consists eleven members. They were discovered at the movie The Love of Siam (a Thai romantic-drama film written and directed by Chookiat Sakveerakul). Originally, the band was made for the movie but, they found themselves comfortable with each other so decided to pursue it into the Thai Entertainment Industry. At first, the band consisted of Pchy, Non, Nine, Tor, Em, Wan, Arm, Mike Ong, Mac, and Petch. Eventually, their managers added up Goo, Joker, Taw and summing up a total number of fourteen members. Hence, two of the original members namely Em and Mike withdrew due to personal issues and Goo (who was by then replaced by Tle) also left because of controversies. Recently, Joker had left the band to concentrate on his studies.

Appearances[edit]

The Love of Siam[edit]

Two young men go from friends to lovers as one stands on the verge of stardom in this drama from Thailand. Mew and Tong were best friends as children, and Tong's sister Tang was a close confidant to them both. Years later, Mew (Witwisit Hiranyawongkul) has become a professional musician, and he's the lead singer and songwriter with a pop group, August, who are poised to achieve major commercial success. One day, Mew happens to meet Tong (Mario Maurer) for the first time in years, and the two waste no time getting reacquainted; while Tong have a girlfriend, it becomes clear that there's a bond between them that they've never felt with other people, and their friendship begins to grow into something deeper. Meanwhile, Tong's family is still reeling from Tang's mysterious disappearance several years before, and her father, Korn (Songsit Roongnophakunsri), has become a hopeless alcoholic. When Tong meets June (Chermarn Boonyasak), a personal assistant for August, he's struck by her uncanny resemblance to Tang, and asks her to pose as his sister in hopes her presence will help his father snap out of his depression. Rak Hang Siam (aka The Love of Siam) was written and directed by Chookiat Sakveerakul, who also had a hand in writing the songs for the film.[1]

Dream (4Romances)[edit]

The story was about a little girl named Ton Kheaw who is so obsessed with the August Band. She entered the magical land of the dream world where she partakes in an adventure with the band. The August Band -to be led by Pchy- has made a deal with "Mr. Bird", unknowingly selling their souls to him(Like Robert Johnson at the Crossroads). The band wanted to end the deal but the only key for them to survive is if Tong Khaew will wake up. Mr. Bird transformed into a Devil Black Cat searching for Tong Khaew and the August Band members to kill them. The band members transformed into cartoon forms to gain powers while Tong Khaew became a wide-eyed anime little girl. They'd tried to escape and protect each other from the Black Cat and eventually beat it up with the help of Boy-Tong Khaew's boyfriend. They all went back to human form and relived their normal lives.

Old Pals[edit]

In this road movie, five close friends make an oath at a Buddhist temple that they will ride bicycles from Bangkok to Lampang if Nut (Nattapong Navasinlawat, "Ong") gets accepted to college in Lampang. Two years later, Nut is accepted, and the friends start the journey to fulfill the oath. A childhood friend, sullen Bas (Witwisit Hiranwongkul, "Pchy") is invited to join them since he knows the route. Stopping overnight, they meet AomAm (Napassorn Eiamcharoen, "Cream") in a massage parlor, and she joins the group also. Along the way, the friends have many experiences and encounter obstacles which make their longtime friendship even stronger. The movie is sometimes referred to with an unofficial, alternate English title "August Friends", a clever double entendre, because the word "august" can mean "venerable".[2]
