Love life and girlfriend
Before becoming a member of NCT, Lucas was in a long-term relationship with his high school sweetheart.
They met when they were both 15 years old, and after being close friends for several months decided to start dating. Lucas has talked about how he wasn’t being hit on by many girls in high school because he was just too hot, and that it was simple with him and his girlfriend as they both had feelings for one another. However, after he joined NCT, one of his agency’s rules was not to be in a relationship and this led to Lucas and his girlfriend’s split. He hasn’t talked about any girls whom he might have dated since then, and he probably won’t because this would lead to him being let go from NCT.
Lucas is currently single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Interests and hobbies
Lucas is keen on learning new languages, and is fluent in English, Korean, Mandarin and Cantonese, while he also knows a bit of Thai thanks to his mother. He likes to taste various cuisines with his favorite being spicy Hungarian, but doesn’t like sweet meals. Lucas plays video games in his spare time, and prefers to use his PC over PlayStation and Xbox but he also likes to spend his free time outdoors playing sports with his friends or going running or cycling.
