Noh Hong-chul (Korean: 노홍철, Hanja: 盧弘喆; born 31 March 1979) is a South Korean entertainer and entrepreneur.

Personal history[edit]

Noh Hong-chul studied mechanical engineering at the Hongik University. After finishing his mandatory two-year military service, he created his online fashion malls, Nohongchul.com and Dream and Adventurous Hongchul-Land Corporation, selling a range of party supplies. He had another business called Hongchul Tour which provided budget trips in China; sometimes he personally guided his customers during these trips.[1]

Career[edit]

Noh Hong-chul's television debut came on Mnet in early 2004 when he hosted his a popular cable TV show called "Dr. Noh's pleasure street" (닥터 노의 KIN길거리)[1] After the success of this show, he officially entered into the free-to-air network program Come to play (놀러와) on MBC, as a joint panelist. Since April 2005, he has been participating as a founding member of Korea's top comedy program, Infinite Challenge.

He has sponsored a car commercial for Matiz of GM Daewoo; some caricatures and photos of himself were inserted in bonnet and doors of his red Matiz car (called 'Hongcar'홍카) in the advertisement.[2]

Noh also made a brief cameo in PSY's video "Gangnam Style," thrusting his pelvis in his trademark "lewd dance," or "jeojil dance" (저질댄스) while standing above PSY while he raps in an elevator.[3] Noh's seven-second appearance in the Gangnam Style video has itself become a worldwide "sensation within a sensation"—and Noh has, separately from PSY, been invited to appear on U.S. television due to his worldwide fame as the "Elevator Guy".[4]

Characters on Infinite Challenge[edit]

On Muhan Dojeon he is characterized by a truly fast speed of speech. For this reason, his nickname on the programme was "Quickmouth". However, during the episode of Season 3 Episode 22, (Muhan News Hangawi Special), Host-in-chief Yoo Jae-suk suggested that he change his nickname to the "Stone-Kid" star (Korean: Dol+I '돌+아이' which is a play on words in Korean, putting stone and child separate as when you put them together, means crazy which is 'unsuitable' for public broadcast) due to his rising popularity (especially with the teenage girls that he strongly supports) as a 'Teen idol'. This popularity is based on his ridiculous performances on this programme. During 2008 episodes of Muhan Dojeon (Infinite Challenge), he gained a new nickname, 뉴뚱, which means he is the "New Pig". He is often considered part of the 뚱보's. This consists of Jeong Joon-Ha (뚱뚱보) and Jeong Hyeong-don (뚱보). He has a pot-belly which prompts the other cast members to call him this nickname. His body fat was shown excessively on the second part of the 100th episode of Muhan Dojeon (Episode 101).

Recently (Season 3 Episode 62), Noh made a song called "So-nyeo" (Hangul: 소녀, meaning "Girl"), proposed as a tribute to his fans.

On January 1, 2010, Gil Seong-jun (Gil), Jeong Hyeong-don, and Noh started their improper, voluntary and unscripted weight loss challenge for Muhan Dojeon for three months, which ended on April 1. According to the rules, the persons who did not meet the goal should shave their heads. In this manner, Gil, who was already bald and to lose 20 kg of his weight, would have had to shave his eyebrows. After three months, on April 1 at the MBC's Dream Centre in Ilsan, Gil and Hyeong-don (who was challenged not to drink Carbonated drinks and to lose 10 kg of his weight) successfully finished their mission, however, only Hong-chul, who was challenged to make his abs without having chocolate, failed the mission, and thus shaved his head immediately after the judgment.[5]

First aired on July 6, 2011, Noh Hong-chul and his costars on the show started a series of episodes dedicated to a competition-style concert on the Seohaean Expressway. As has been the norm for Infinite Challenge when preparing for a concert, each costar was paired off with a guest musician or guest band. Noh Hong-chul collaborated with PSY and together, they sang and performed the hit song “Shake It” under the band name “ChulSSa”.[6]
