Childhood and education
Lee was raised an only child in both South Korea and the US, by his South Korean father who is a businessman, and his American mother who is currently living in the US. Lee spent six years living in Los Angeles, California where he attended Park’s Jr. High School – while there, he was known as David.
He became interested in music while living in Los Angeles, and before finishing high school there, he moved back to Seoul to pursue his dream of becoming a famous singer, thus enrolling at Seoul’s School of the Performing Arts Department of Stage Arts – he matriculated on 15 February 2019.
Lee isn’t planning on enrolling at college, but will keep working on his way up in the music industry.
Career as a singer and the band AB6IX
Lee’s career as a singer was launched in 2017, when he was invited to compete in the reality TV show “Produce 101 Season 2”, which counted 101 boys who were competing to become members of a new South Korean boy group.
Through his great singing skills, Lee was chosen as the main performer for the show’s theme song – “Pick Me” – while he gathered well over a million votes at the end, winning third spot, and so finding himself as a member of the newly formed boy group, Wanna One.
Wanna One was signed to YMC Entertainment, and their first official concert was held at the Gocheok Sky Dome on 7 August 2017, called “Wanna One Premier Show-Con” – just one day later, they released their first extended play (EP) “1×1=1 (To Be One)” with the song “Energetic” as its lead single, while music videos were uploaded onto YouTube for both “Energetic” and “Burn It Up”.
They released the repackaged album on 13 November called “1-1=0 (Nothing Without You)” and the two albums together sold over a million copies. On 19 March 2018, the boys released their second EP, “0+1=1 (I Promise You)”, with the song “Boomerang” as its lead single.
On 4 June, their third EP came out entitled “1/x=1 (Undivided)”, featuring many other musicians such as Dynamic Duo, Nell and Zico among others. On 31 May 2018, the boys’ contract with YMC expired, and they signed with Swing Entertainment – under them, they released their debut full-length studio album “1¹¹=1 (Power of Destiny)” on 19 November 2018.
It was announced by Swing Entertainment that its contract with Wanna One would end on 31 December 2018, but that the boys would still perform in January 2019 as scheduled – their final performance was held throughout four days ending on 27 January at the Gocheok Sky Dome.
Lee debuted with his new boy group AB6IX on 22 May 2019, when they released their debut EP “B:Complete” made up of seven songs, while they performed several songs from the EP at Olympic Hall in Seoul on the same day. Their first fan meeting was held on 27 July 2019, entitled ‘1st ABNEW’, as a celebration of the release of their first EP.
The boys’ (Lee, Jeon Woong, Park Woo-jin and Kim DOng-hyun) debut full-length studio album came out on 7 October entitled “6ixense”, reaching #30 on Billboard Social 50 Chart, and held the position for a month. AB6IX held its debut concert on 9 November, at Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul.
On 13 February 2020, AB6IX released their mini-album “5Nally”, made up of five songs for its five members (as Youngmin was still a member back then – he left the group on 8 June 2020) and although the boys announced that they were about to tour both Europe and the US in 2020, the tours had to be cancelled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Most recently, on 29 June AB6IX released their second mini-album, “Vivid”.
As a songwriter, Lee has written songs for several popular performers, such as “Slow” which he wrote for Yoo Jisung’s album “Aside”, Park Ji-hoon’s song “Young20” as well as the song “Airplane”, which is one of the tracks on Iz*One’s album “Heart*Iz”.
Love life and girlfriend
Lee hasn’t commented on any girls he might have dated since the launch of his singing career, but it is widely known that South Korean agencies do not allow their rookie artists to be dating, because of the possible negative effect it might have on the groups. However, there are rumors circulating the internet that Lee is gay, because of the way he dresses and because he has once stated how he would date Minhyun if he was a girl.
When Lee and his friends from the group Wanna One were guests in an episode of the reality TV competition show “Men on a Mission”, they challenged the group Super Junior to a game of intimidation – while all other Wanna One members were defeated, Lee didn’t react to Super Junior’s Heechul tricks to intimidate him by saying that there are rumors he likes men – Lee simply replied that there are also rumors about him being gay, and he let Heechul kiss him in the neck. Lee eventually won the game for his team.
As of July 2020, Lee is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interesting facts
Lee is left-handed. He is interested in learning languages, and is fluent in English while he can also speak Japanese and has a knowledge of Mandarin.
He has been wanting to learn how to sew since he saw his mother do it when he was six, and today Lee ‘reinvents’ clothes by sewing additional details to them – he often goes shopping for clothes, and his favorite color is purple.
Lee likes to collect candles which is ‘the weirdest’ hobby out of those his friends from AB6IX have.
He is a lover of animals but doesn’t like snakes because he is afraid of them.
