While talking about his career and life experiences, Eric Nam revealed that he was the vice president of his high school. Lee Yong Ju wondered how he was elected as an Asian American when discrimination was typical back then. Eric Nam responded humbly, saying he believed he was elected because nobody else wanted to take on the role.

When Kim Min Su asked him what his pledge was while running for office, Eric Nam said it was to give his schoolmates an amazing prom.

In America, we have this thing called prom. So [I said] if I get elected, we will throw the best prom party.

The singer then explained that he experienced bullying in school due to being a minority group—he even got spit in the face. However, this motivated him to work hard to become good at something.

I went to a school that was almost all white, and so it was really hard to fit in, and there was a lot of bullying. Once, somebody spit on my face. My focus was, ‘How do I get to a place where people respect me because I’m really good at something?’ So it was music, and then soccer at the time, and certain things.

He also said that he was “always nice to everybody,” which is not surprising given that he is known to be a kind and friendly person.


Having turned experiences of being bullied into opportunities, Eric Nam is most definitely respected for being the talented person that he is. He is an artist acknowledged for being good at many things, including singing…

…to interviewing in two languages…

…to dressing like an icon…

…to dancing and acting?!

The list can go on and on.
