In May 2009 he finished as the runner-up on the fifth season of reality show The Star.
Dew Pongsatorn Supinyo was born in a middle-class family in Chonburi, Thailand. He lived there until entering Silpakorn University in Bangkok. Supinyo's father died since he was 4 years old due to Hematological malignancy. After the death of his father, the family started having a financial difficulty as only the mother supported three children. When Supinyo turned 17, the family had to sell and leave the house; which Supinyo referred to as the family memorable home. One of his desires is to get back the house for the family.
He attended Mary Immaculate Convent School from the first grade of elementary school until he graduated high school in the year 2005. In 2005, Supinyo entered Silpakorn University, which is one of the most famous universities in Thailand for art majors. Supinyo is currently majoring in decorative art; Faculty of Decorative Arts, Visual Communication Design Department, specializing in film-making. He is currently working on his graduation thesis, a short film, and is expected to attend the graduation in 2010.
In 2009, he entered The Star reality show's the fifth season and finished as the runner-up. There were approximately 20,000 applicants for the season. The show aired on February 7, 2009 via Modernine TV. Supinyo auditioned for the fifth season of The Star in Khonkaen. During his initial audition, he sang Clash's La Korn Ruk Tair and Chao Na Kub Ngoo Hao. In the semifinals Dew was selected into the Top 8.
In the Introduction week, he sang "Kuen Chan" by Loso which he was able to capture attention from public as well as all the judges. During the competition, he received the highest votes from the hall continuously for 4 weeks and it was the first time this happened in the Star reality show. During the 6th week of The Star reality show, Supinyo performed with Da Thanida Thamwimon Endorphine, the lead vocals of one of the best Thai rock bands.
After the completion of the reality show, he was assigned to sing his first own song called "Klua Kwam Mued" (translated as "Fear of the Darkness"). The song has received a tremendous positive feedback from public and has been staying on top ranking of the majority of Thai radio stations over 10 weeks.
Soon after his first song was released and became well-known; Supinyo was given an opportunity to sing his second song "Lak Tang Jai Kae Dai Ruk Tur" (translated as "Giving All the Heart for Loving you"). This is the OST of Thai series "Hero 1000 Ruk". No surprise, the feedback of the second song is being extremely positive in which we could see that the ranking is moving up to the top again. Also, the music video was filmed under the concept of "Romeo and Juliet 2009".

The Uniqueness of Dew's Hair Style
Supinyo's hair style (Dreadlocks) basically became the talk of the town. Typically, Thai guys would just leave their hair short. The reason that he has long hair was because he prayed if he could enter Silpakorn University, he would not have any hair cut until his graduation. His popularity does not only derive from his talent, but also from being extraordinary and thinking out of the box.
Reincarnation of Joe (Pause)
The look of Supinyo is similar to Joe Ammarin Leungboribul (โจ้ อัมรินทร์ เหลืองบริบูรณ์) the lead vocals from the Pause band (Bakery Music). Leungboribul committed suicide in February 2002. Supinyo is sometimes called a reincarnation of Leungboribul by the public.
Hobby as a Photographer
Supinyo has personal interest in photography. He has several photo collections which each collection tells different stories.
