Nichkhun of 2PM to star in new three-part Thai movie


Nichkhun of 2PM, who is hugely popular in Southeast Asia, has been cast in a supporting role in a Thai movie, his agency announced yesterday.

“To commemorate its seventh anniversary, the Thailand film production company GTH will film a three-part movie,” JYP Entertainment said. GTH is the biggest production company in Thailand and has produced “Phobia 2,” “Hello Stranger” and “Bangkok Traffic Love Story.”

Nichkhun will appear in one of the new movie’s three parts, according to the agency.

“I’ve always wanted to act, so I am so driven to perform as best I can. I am ready to give it all that I’ve got,” the boy band member said. He will be in Thailand until the end of January working on the movie.

Nichkhun is immensely popular in Thailand as he is of Thai and Chinese descent, though he was born in the U.S. Recently, a wax replica of the star went on display at Madame Tussauds in Bangkok. And 2PM made a donation of 130 million won ($113,490) in October to support Thai flood victims, boosting his popularity there.
