The world has been witnessing Thailand’s political crisis since October 2013, aimed at removing the influence of Thaksin Shinawatra – former prime minister – from Thai politics.

However, a Japanese news reporter stole the limelight from the anti-government rallies and the February 2 general elections because of– what his admirers call – good looks.

28-year old Daijiro Enami, who works for Fuji Television Network, was in Bangkok to cover the immensely important political event but little did he know that he would end up as news himself.

A number of Thai protesters and locals forgot about their cause momentarily and asked Enami to pose for selfies with them.

Later, his photos were widely shared on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Here’s Enami interviewing anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban.

People absolutely adore him:
