About Mo Monchanok
Mo began her career after accompanying a friend to an audition. Ironically, her friend didn't get the job but a modeling agency took Mo's picture and she was called in shortly after for a TV commercial, which she received right away. Prior to this, Mo had no plans to become an actress. From there on, she went to star in two films.
Mo then made her transition to small screens with a cameo appearance in the lakorn, Pieng Jai Tee Pook Pun, in 2010. Two years later, she debuted as one of the lead actresses in Likit Fah Cha Ta Din alongside Son Yuke Songpaisan. A year later, they won the Most Popular Overseas Artist Award together at the Asian Idol Awards in China.
For a while, Mo was demoted to a supporting actress. However, with the success and her growing popularity in Fun Fueng 2014 and Tawun Thud Burapah 2015, she was able to regain her position as a leading actress. Cheewit Puer Kah Huajai Puer Tur 2016 was Mo's comeback lakorn as nang'ek after several years of playing supporting and nang'rai.
Mo eventually rose to limelight through Ruk Long Jai (Club Friday The Series 7) in early 2016. Her chemistry and performance with Toomtam Yuthana Puengklarng in this short series received much love and attention, with viewers requesting the producer to reunite the two in a sequel. Due to her popularity, Mo won the Best Bang Girl of the Year Award 2016 along with other trending actresses at the time.
A year later, Ruk Long Jai To Be Continued became a huge success, further catapulting Mo to stardom. She is best known for her role in this series.
After six years under her label, Exact, Mo decided to not renew her contract with them and became a free agent in May of 2018, allowing her to act for various channels. Following this decision, she was immediately cast in three projects that same year for GMM25 (Khon Tee Mai Yorm Rub), Ch.3 (Tee Krai Tee Man) and PPTV (In Time With You).
In January 2019, Mo officially signed a contract with Ch.3 as their actress.
Aside from acting, one of Mo's passions is cooking and she hopes to pursue her dream of becoming a chef. Mo has also taken an intern to become a scriptwriter.
- In 2016, during an interview on EFM ON TV for Ruk Long Jai, Toomtam Yuthana Puengklarng jokingly professed that he used to secretly like Mo. He also praised Mo as being very cute and lovable, and revealed his close friendship with her. When asked if he gets shy acting sweetly with Mo, Toomtam confessed, "Honestly, we’ve worked together as pra nang ever since my Music Video, until now, I feel that it isn’t hard to love this woman. Because personally I have gotten to know this woman, Mo, as very close friends and have seen her true self. I can feel that her true self is cute, very cute. I mean for five years that I’ve known her, I may not have gotten to know her well enough, but at this moment, Mo is adorable, the kind of person that if I love her then I can love her."
- In 2016, during an interview on EFM ON TV for Ruk Long Jai, when asked why Toomtam and Mo were cast in the series, producer Ace (S) Vorarit Vaijairanai replied, "I wanted to work with seven actresses that I haven’t worked with before, hence Mo qualifies. After we casted Mo we thought of Toomtam because they have great chemistry together." P'Chod, the creator of Club Friday The Series, also praised them as being "extremely cute".
- In late November of 2016, it was announced that there would be a sequel of Ruk Long Jai because of its popularity and success. Ruk Long Jai To Be Continued's first official trailer was released on July 6, 2017. Within only three hours of its release on Facebook, it received over one million views, proving the popularity of the first season and its cast. Just like the first season, this sequel created a big buzz on social media during its finale episode, trending in the top hashtags for Thailand. Ace (S) Vorarit Vaijairanai, the producer of Club Friday The Series, also recorded that there were over 100,000 viewers on GMM25's official Facebook live stream of the finale episode. Later on November 9, 2017, GMM25 did something they never did before in Club Friday history; they announced that they'd be filming and airing a special finale episode of Ruk Long Jai due to high demand for a third season. Despite only being one episode, this special recorded nearly 150,000 viewers on GMM25's official Facebook live stream, breaking its previous record, and proving once again the series' success and huge following. In December of 2017, it was announced that Ruk Long Jai To Be Continued would be airing on Cambodian television. In June 2018, the first installment of the series, Ruk Long Jai, was officially subtitled and made available to stream on Netflix USA under the title "Game of Love".
- In early 2016, during an interview at the Nine Entertain Awards, Jespipat Tilapornputt and Mo were questioned about their relationship offscreen. Jes revealed that they've been friends and part of the same circle of buddies since before they entered the entertainment industry; hence, they are close.
- In 2015, during the opening ceremony of Toomtam and Mo's sitcom, Mue Prab Gook Gook Goo, director Pongsak Chimjaroen (Gik), stated in an interview that he chose Toomtam and Mo as the leading couple because he believes that "they are the most compatible".
- In 2015, Toomtam and Mo's lakorn, Koom Nang Kruan, was nominated for the Nine Entertain Awards in the lakorn category. The theme was "Quality Shows that Teach Good Morals".
- In 2014, Toomtam and Mo were nominated for Kazz Awards for their pairing in Koom Nang Kruan.
- In 2012, Mo won the Most Popular Overseas Artist Award in China along with Son Yuke Songpaisan for their performance in Likit Fah Cha Ta Din. During their appearance at the Asian Idol Awards, Son and Mo performed a song together for Chinese fans.
- Mo has expressed her admiration for older generation actress, Woranuch Wongsawan (Noon), whom she acted with in the lakorn, E-Sa 2013, playing as mother and daughter. In an interview for the lakorn, Mo stated, "I am happy and thrilled because I get a chance to play and work with the greatest actors and actresses of all time. Especially, P'Noon Woranuch, who is my idol. She is very talented."
