When many people first here GOT7 BamBam‘s name they assume it’s just his stage name, but in reality, it’s his real name! As every Aghase knows, BamBam has two names, Kunpimook Bhuwakul and the shorter BamBam.
This isn’t all that uncommon in Thailand as parents generally give their children two names because the names are always so long.
BamBam’s siblings’ names are so long that even he has had trouble remembering them! Fans first learned of this during an episode of Knowing Brothers, when BamBam revealed he struggled with memorizing his oldest brother’s full name.
“Honestly, it’s too long. I can’t memorize it. It’s even longer than mine! But, he has a short name as well, it’s Beer.”
So to put it to the test, when GOT7 appeared on Idol Room Defconnand Jung Hyung Don proposed a special challenge for the idol. While each of the members had to face their own unique challenge to move onto the weird showcase, BamBam was tasked with correctly saying his siblings’ full names.
