Not that kind of clams, the other kind! HaHaHa. During a fan signing event at Central World Paragon today (6/7/09), an interviewer asked Nichkhun whether he likes “hoi (clams)”, he chuckled and started listing all his favorite clam dishes. Finally, he broke down laughing and said “yes, I do.I like all types of clams. It’s my favorite food.” Why did he laugh when asked that question? In Thai, ‘hoi” literally means clams and it’s also a slang word for the “vajayjay”.
The clip of Nichkhun admitting he likes clams. I love the two guy hosts, they understood what Nichkhun was saying. “Nichkhun is Thai, he’s probably thinking of another meaning of ‘hoi’.” The girl host just scolded them for being perverted. He probably means “hoi” as in clams she said. Then one of the two guys said, “then why did he find it funny?”
Girl host:”He’s still a young man, why did they ask him about hois (clams)?”
“Because it is his favorite food.” The fat guy in red answered. We all know Khun’s favorite food is pork.
TOO funny! I can’t believe this was discussed on national TV. This is a morning variety show too. Only in Thailand!
Did I go too far? Should I have just let it go and not translate what they actually mean and said. A few minutes ago, I was scolded by a person at YOUTUBE, who wrote in Thai, saying I should have never explained what was said. It ruins the image of Thailand and of Nichkhun.
What the person wrote:
เวลาจะอธิบายอะไร รบกวนหวงภาพของประเทศและตัวน้อง เค้าเองด้วย หอยก็แค่หอยนะครับ ไม่จำเป็น อธิบายลึกขนาดนั้นหรอก มันแปลกๆ พิกล
I should remember to regard the Thai image and the image of Nichkhun too. Hoi means clams and nothing deeper. I did delete my youtube comment for the video because I felt bad after being scolded.
Am I disgracing the image of Thailand and of Nichkhun too? I found it funny and no harm done. Then again, I’m a very calm, open-minded person. The rest of the world, not so much. For the sake of saving face, should I delete this post?
–update part 2: thank you everyone for proving to me that the whole world is not uptight as I think they are. I will keep this post.
