Meet music artist from Bangkok, Jan Chan.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m Janchan, a former 1st generation member of the very popular Thai/Japan Idol Group (BNK48).

I graduated from the group in 2018 and I am now doing singer, designer, model, actress activities in Thailand and Japan.

 

Describe the city you’re living in and what it’s like to live there.

Bangkok is a mixture of local Thai and modern Thai. It is also a mixture of elements and people from many different countries so it has a lot of different energies and is very interesting to live in.

What is the best and worst thing about living in your city?

Best: comfortable with the convenience of a big city

Worst: the traffic jam and pedestrian walkways are not paved smoothly so transportation and movement is difficult

 

Give us 3 words that describe what it’s like to be a creative in your city.

Freedom, energy, colorful

 

How did you start your career in music?

I liked to sing casually during my student days, but I wasn’t really trying to learn it professionally until I became a member of BNK48. Now I still need to learn so much more compared to all the other talented Thai female singers.

Were the people around you supportive of your decision on working as a creative?

As entertainment work is not stable and difficult to be successful in, I think a lot of people around me were hesitant when I chose this as my occupation.

 

What are some goals and ambitions you have for your future work?

I’m still a singer-in-learning, so hopefully, I can sing naturally and better in the future.

If you could collaborate with any person in the world who would it be?

Jason Mraz

 

How would you describe the women around you?

Bangkok (Thai) women are basically easy going (sabai sabai).

 

Were there any local female creatives that you looked up to when you were growing up?

None in particular

 

Are there any challenging aspects of being a female in your industry?

Bangkok, Thailand is a very open city and country, but I feel that there are still more hurdles for female artists

to overcome.

 

Love what you do and don’t worry about what other people think about your creative skills.

Do you have any advice to young women who are aspiring to work in your field?

Love what you do and don’t worry about what other people think about your creative skills.
