Nichkhun Buck Horvejkul[3][4] (Thai: นิชคุณ หรเวชกุล; RTGSNitchakhun Horawetchakun; born June 24, 1988), better known mononymously as Nichkhun (Korean: 닉쿤), is a Thai American[5][6][7] singer, songwriter, rapper, actor and model who is currently based in South Korea as a member of the South Korean boy band 2PM.

Early life[edit]

Nichkhun was born in Rancho Cucamonga, California, U.S. to Thai Chinese parents and was raised in Thailand.[8][9][10] His mother's side of the family is from Hainan, and he has said that he has extended family and distant ancestors from Guangzhou.[9][11]

Nickhun's mother, Yenjit Horvejkul (née Mekworewut[3]), is the chief executive officer of a Thai pharmaceutical company, Union Medical, established in 1976, which acts as an importer and distributor.[12][unreliable source?] He comes from a wealthy background, which earned him the nickname "Thai Prince" in South Korea.[12] Nichkhun has one older brother, Nichan Bert (born September 11, 1986),[13] and two younger sisters, Nichthima Yanin (born July 22, 1990)[14] and Nachjaree (Chereen) (born October 20, 1994). At the age of five, he moved to Thailand from the United States 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. He was scouted by a scout manager of JYP Entertainment at the Los Angeles Korean Music Festival.[15]

After passing an audition hosted by JYP Entertainment, he signed a ten-year contract with the company but later re-signed 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 is now fluent in Thai, English, Korean, Japanese and basic Chinese. 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 four-member ballad group (2AM) or a seven-member dance group (2PM) under JYP Entertainment.[16]

As a male citizen of Thailand, he was subject to the military draft lottery in 2009 and subsequently received an exemption from military service.[17]

On September 4, 2008, Nichkhun debuted as part of 2PM in their first single "10 Points out of 10 Points" (Korean: "10점 만점에 10점") from their single album "Hottest Time of the Day". They have released five studio albums in Korea and four studio albums in Japan.
