[Tran] 140920 Nichkhun’s Exclusive Interview with Komchadluek (by Daffodil0624)
Q: What have you learned from working in South Korea?
Nichkhun: When you are in a foreign country, you have to respect their people, rules, cultures, languages and many other cultural aspects. It is important that you should respect their ways of thinking. If you visit someone and leave a mess in their house, the owners won’t want to invite you there again. I have lived overseas since I was a boy so I rarely have problems adjusting to other cultures. And I don’t feel lonely.
Q: What motivates you to push forward and become successful?
Nichkhun: I often think of my parents, my family and love ones. My fans and my friends. I try not to make them disappoint in me. I don’t want them to be ashamed because of me. They encourage me to work hard. For me, my family is my biggest motivator and the most precious moral support. I hope you think of your family and love ones as motivators in order to do everything in your life well and to become successful.
Q: What do you want to tell younger people who want to be like Nichkhun?
Nichkhun: I want to tell them being a star is very tiring. Many people want to be in the limelight. To be lavished with attention. But being a star is not everything in life. I consider it as a job like what everyone does in their daily life. They should find a job that suits them and not just follow people’s footsteps. Find the jobs they love and do their best.
Q: How do you feel when many people think of you as their idol?
Nichkhun: Sometimes I feel pressured. I am just a man. I do make mistakes like everybody. I am not perfect. But my father has taught me to think of a crisis as an opportunity. To use the mistakes I have made as reminders to be careful. I try to do my best in everything I do so that people who consider me their idol will learn to do their best too. And don’t follow my mistakes.
Q: When your fans think of Nichkhun, what do you want them to see?
Nichkhun: I want my fans to think of my smiles. I want them to smile and be happy with me. Being a star is a bit peculiar. So many people love you and follow your activities. Most importantly, they are happy when I am happy, when I smile or wave my hands. It is strange and very valuable at the same time. I feel like I am helping people to be happy. So I am glad and proud to be in this position. I am fortunate to work in this field and to be able to make people smile with me.
