Childhood and education
Winwin was raised in Wenzhou as an only child by his father who is the owner of his own small company, and his mother who is working as a secretary at the same company. He became interested in dance at a very early age, and was enrolled at the Secondary School of Beijing Dance Academy, at which he also worked on his singing and acting skills.

It was announced by SM Entertainment in January 2016 that it would be launching a group NCT (New Culture Technology) and that it would be made up of a theoretically unlimited number of boys, who would be separated into several sub-units, which would collaborate together and exchange members as necessary.
From December 2013 to January 2016, SM Entertainment searched for, recruited and trained its singers, eventually finding 16 boys who would comprise NCT.
The first NCT subunit – NCT U (United) – began performing on 4 April 2016, and was initially made up of Taeil, Doyoung, Ten, Taeyong, Jaehyun and Mark. Their debut single “The 7th Sense” came out on 10 April, just a day after Winwin and Kun joined the unit.

NCT Dream went on to release their debut physical song “The First” on 9 February, and on 14 February competed in the SBS’ “The Show”, winning it and thus marking the first show victory for NCT.

They released their debut album “NCT 2018 Empathy” on 14 March, made up of six songs and which reached the top spot on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart. NCT Dream’s second EP “We Go Up”, came out on 3 September, and on 12 October, NCT 127 released their debut studio album called “Regular-Irregular”, with the song “Regular” as its lead single.
SM Entertainment announced on 31 December 2018 that it would be launching the fourth NCT sub-unit WayV, which would be based in China and made up of Winwin, Ten, Kun, Hendery, Xiaojun, Lucas and Yangyang.

On 26 January, NCT 127 started their tour around Korea, Japan, Europe and North America, in early April WayV released their debut extended play “Take Off”, and on 17 April NCT 127 released their debut Japanese album “Awaken”.

Love life and girlfriend
It was reported on 4 September 2017 by SM Entertainment that Winwin entered a relationship with a girl later recognized as Jacinta from Australia, who is neither a celebrity nor a singer. The two were introduced by a mutual friend and started dating just a day later. As NCT fans were curious to learn more about Jacinta, they found out that she is originally from China, but moved to Australia with her family, and it was there that she became friends with the boy group BTS’ member Suga, who introduced her to Winwin as well as several other boys.
There are rumors circulating the internet that Winwin and Jacinta dated for no longer than two months, before they split ways for unknown reasons.
Winwin has stated how he requires only one thing of his girlfriend, which is to have long black hair. As of July 2020, Winwin is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
