Nichkhun wins influence award

Jan 19,2019
Singer Nichkhun from boy band 2PM was honored with the Asia Influential Excellence Award at the 2019 Fashion And Entertainment Influence Awards held in Beijing on Tuesday.

The annual ceremony, hosted by Chinese magazine Jstyle Jingmei, honors excellence in the fashion and entertainment industries. Popular Chinese stars including Zhu Dan and Zhu Xingjie were also present at the ceremony.

This is Nichkhun’s second award won at the ceremony. Last year, he won the International Fashion Artist prize at the Award.

Although Nichkhun debuted in 2008 with the group 2PM, he had been actively pursuing a career as a solo artist in Asia.

His increasing popularity led him to hold two fan meetings in Beijing in October and Nanjing in November and he also appeared in the Chinese drama “Shall We Fall in Love.” In December, he released his first solo Japanese album “ME” and held his solo concert series “HOME” in Osaka and Tokyo.
