    The tall guy in the blue shirt: from his height, he might be Korn, but doesn’t he usually wear glasses? (Can’t tell if he is or not in the cartoon) From his dark blue shirt and protruding lower lip, though, I’d guess he’s Newin.

    Fat guy in the blue shirt behind Korn/Newin: guessing Chai Chidchob, House Speaker and Newin’s father.

    Sonthi and Chamlong are also present on the far right side.

    Whoops, last part of that should be “far left side”.

    man in the blue shirt and glasses (?) => Papa Snoh Thianthong
    Whoops, last part of that should be “far left side”. => Chamlong and Sondhi Limthongkul who just catched cold.

  4. Wisarut says:

    Puea Thai member Mingkhwan Saengsuwan => No[pe, that’s is the Big Ear (Maj Gen Snan Khajornprasat) who plays water throwing to Banharn

    1. It was my first impression, too that the older man in the blue shirt at the back is Sanoh……
    2. I was actually thinking, “hmm, and where is Sanan….. he ought to be included?” – now that you mention it, K. Wisarut, yes, it’s probably him, not Mingkwan (though the latter also has protruding ears).
    3. Yes, the thin guy with the drooping lip must be Newin, not Korn.
