Lee Do Hyun is a South Korean actor. He was born on April 11, 1995 in the city of Goyang in Gyeonggi-do, and is the eldest son in his family. Though Lee had a passion for the arts since young, his family was not initially supportive of him pursuing it as a career. He continued to secretly pursue acting lessons without his father’s knowledge, although his parents would eventually come to support his choice to forge his own path as an actor.
Like many other talented young actors of his generation, Lee later honed his theatrical skills as an undergraduate studying at Chung-Ang University’s College of Arts.
