About (Nich Khun Horvejkul)

  • Nichkhun moved at the age of five with his family in Thailand where he lived until he moved again to study in New Zealand at the age of twelve before eventually relocating to California where he was scouted and invited to audition by a JYP agent in a Korean Music Festival.
  • He became a JYP Ent. trainee in 2006 after re-signing an eight year contract followed by a ten year contract which did not include training until J.Y. Park told him that he was required to learn how to dance, sing, bulk up and obtain fluency in Korean and Mandarin Chinese.
  • He joined Mnet‘s survival show ‘Hot Blood Men‘ where he was one of the 13 trainees who had to follow an extreme training routine in order to debut as members of JYP then new group ‘One Day‘. ‘One Day‘ was split into two boy groups ‘2AM‘ & ‘2PM‘ respectively.
  • Although still a JYP trainee, Horvejkul has already made himself a name as Asia's future top star. He has gained fans from Thailand and Korea with appearances on televion, such as JYP's talent competition, Superstar Survival where he took role of the host. Horvejkul speaks four languages: his primary languages consist of both Thai and English; his secondary language is Korean.
  • Nichkhun debuted as the vocalist, rapper and visual of 2PM (a second generation boy group which is remarkably known for their distinctive tough and macho beast-like image) on September 4, 2008, under JYP Entertainment. The group has debuted on M! Countdown with their 2pm single 10 out of 10.
  • After 2PM's debut in 2008, Nichkhun began doing Thai endorsements and was selected by the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
  • Khun has mentioned in an interview on how training to become a star is hard work. JYP is giving him instruction in all branches of the industry. He must also learn Chinese and Korean, and work out regularly. He has 24 others of similar age in his 'class', who every month are tested to see how they are performing. Khun and his classmates must turn from being friends into competitors, which would be an unusual experience.
  • His JYP contract does not mean he will perform exclusively in Korea, as the company is keen for its talent to get work experience in their home countries, too.
  • Superstar Rain is his senior, and as a fellow JYP 'property' has given him advice every step of the way, Khun says. Some of his fans believe Khun is destined for superstardom himself - they have started calling him 'the second Rain '.
  • In April 2009, he was a subject to the Thai military draft lottery in Komutputtarungsi Temple which resulted to him receiving an exemption from military service.
  • He is also an avid actor. He has acted in various Chinese/Thai/Korean movies, drama series, web series and multiple variety shows, both Chinese and Korean.
  • His solo works include songs in all to his knowledge languages and his debut solo album ‘ME’ which was first released in Japan on December 19, 2018 and later in South Korea on February 18, 2019. There are two versions of the album and a song which he dedicated to his fans and has five different versions (in English, Korean, Japanese, Thai and Chinese).
