Event Reports

This year, to celebrate the 130th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Thailand and Japan, Japan Expo in Thailand 2017, one of the biggest Japan-related events in Thailand, was held.

Idol Blue, the singer from Domo! World’s idol duo MO-DO, appeared for the first time in Thailand as a NHK World ambassador. Everyone was happy to meet Idol Blue!

This time, NHK World hosted several special programs. On the first day, Thai service of Radio Japan was on the main stage providing information and demonstration* on dealing with post-disaster situations.

On the following day, PIMTHA, a famous Thai instagrammer, was here to talk about her experiences as a guest host on TOKYO EYE 2020, a program that shows the many exciting faces of Tokyo.

On the same day, she had a talk show and a Q&A session with her fans at the booth. They were very excited to see and take pictures with her!

On the last day of the event, Bank Thiti, a popular Thai actor, visited the booth and talked about his role in one of NHK’s drama “Gata no Kuni Kara”. Watch this drama in English on NHK World on November 26, 2017. Check it out!

He was also at the main stage to share more about the drama. Fans not only got to interact with him afterwards but were also able to receive a cute Domo doll during quiz time.

At the booth, mini talk shows with Hunny Narula, a Thai NHK World TV news anchor, were held twice. She talked about her experiences and the programs available on NHK World. Idol Blue learned many useful contents!

On the other side of the booth, visitors were enjoying the many interesting activities.

One of the most popular activities was the free Video-on-Demand corner. This year, NHK World has started providing video contents in Thai, making it even more enjoyable and understandable for Thai viewers!

At the Time After Time Domo Capsule corner, a collaboration project between NHK World and Sebastian Masuda (a pioneer of the Harajuku kawaii culture), visitors were invited in to write letters to their future selves.

There was also an animated photo booth corner, where visitors could take moving photos with a Domo! World theme. Everyone was having so much fun!

Thank you everyone for coming to NHK World booth! See you again at our next event!
