Nichkhun Horvejkul (Thai: นิชคุณ หรเวชกุล, RTGS: Nitchakhun Horawetchakun; born June 24, 1988), usually known mononymously as Nichkhun (Korean: 닉쿤), is a Thai-Chinese American singer. He sings and raps in 2PM, a six-member boy band in South Korea.
Nichkhun was born in Rancho Cucamonga, California to Thai-Chinese parents. Nichkhun has one older brother Nichan, and two younger sisters, Nichthima (Yanin) and Nachjaree (Chereen). At the age of two, he moved to Thailand with his family and studied at Dhepkanjana School and Tangpiroondham School. At the age of twelve, he studied at Wanganui Collegiate School in New Zealand for a year and a half and moved back to the United States to finish his schooling at Los Osos High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California. After high school, he was a coach at Rosemead High School for their badminton team. There, he was scouted by Park Jin-young, a K-pop singer and the producer of JYP Entertainment, at the Los Angeles Korean Music Festival.
After passing the audition hosted by JYP Entertainment, he signed a ten-year contract with the company but later re-signed for an eight-year contract, not including training, and was brought to South Korea in 2006 as a trainee, being put into a class of 24 other students. Park Jin-young informed him that he was required to learn how to sing and to dance, learn Korean and Mandarin Chinese, and to bulk up. He first appeared through MNET's Hot Blood, a program that showed the intense physical training that 13 male trainees had to go through for the opportunity to debut in either a 4-member ballad group 2AM or a 6-member dance group (originally had 7 members until the leader Jay Park left the group) 2PM under JYP Entertainment.
Nichkhun is a rapper, dancer, and occasional support vocalist for the South Korean boy band 2PM. He sings or raps a number of the band's English lines, because of his previous experience with the language.
On 4 September 2008, Nichkhun debuted as a 2PM member with their first single "10점 만점에 10점" ("10 Points out of 10 Points") from their single album "Hottest Time of the Day".

Nichkhun played a main character in the 12-minute music video drama, released on February 8, 2010. Nichkhun also hosted JYP's talent competition, Superstar Survival.
