Early life and education
Kun was raised an only child in Fujian by his father, who is the owner of a small computer store, and his mother who is a piano teacher. Kun grew up wanting to become an astronaut after watching a documentary about NASA on TV, and after reading a book related to space.
He became interested in playing the piano at the age of six, and his mother gave him lessons for about two years – it was at the age of nine that he enrolled into a school for the performing arts, at which he practiced his singing and dancing skills.
He attended Beijing Contemporary Music Institute, and was planning to enroll at a college after matriculation in 2014, however, he instead pursued his career as a singer, and thus put aside his plans for a degree.
Career as a singer – NCT and WayV
It was revealed by SM Entertainment in January 2016 that it had been working on gathering members for their new South Korean boy group since December 2013, and that it would be called NCT, and made up of several sub-units.

The first NCT U sub-unit was launched on 4 April 2016, and was made up of six boys – Mark, Jaehyun, Taeli, Ten, Doyoung and Taeyong. They released their first two digital singles – “The 7th Sense” and “Without You” – on 9 and 10 April, while Kun joined the boys for the Chinese versions of the songs (he wouldn’t join the group full-time until two years later).

Love life and girlfriend
Kun hasn’t talked about any girls he might have dated since he became a member of NCT, and it is very unlikely that he will because SM Entertainment has put a dating ban on all of NCT’s members.
This means that if caught with a girl, it is very likely that the member would be kicked out of the group. However, there are rumors circulating the internet that Kun was in a long-term relationship prior to joining NCT, and that the two dated for around three years before they split, because of his career – another rumor has it that they haven’t really split, but have continued dating in (supposed) secret.
Kun has talked about what his ideal type of a girl would be, stating that she would have to be mature, be ready to cook and prepare food for him. She would also have to look after him when he gets sick.
