Ten ( NCT) is likened to a Thai Prince because he has a very powerful family background, but he still endures hardships and tries to leave his homeland to go to Korea to fulfill his dream with art.

Ten Lee, real name Chittaphon Leechaiyapornkul (born 1996), is the first Thai idol to debut under the famous Korean entertainment company SM Entertainment. Born and raised in a wealthy family, Ten was carefully educated and intended to study abroad in the UK after graduating from high school.

Through the group's reality show "NCT Life in Bangkok", fans learned more about Ten's family background. In the program, this "prince" led the members to visit his old school - Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok, Thailand - where Ten studied for 10 years. Tuition for this school is 25,000 USD/year (about 500 million VND), not including other costs such as textbooks, uniforms and extracurricular activities. Considering the average income of a family in Thailand is about 135 million VND a year, it seems that Ten's parents have done very well. Ten's father is a businessman, and although there is no specific information about his business, Ten's "overwhelming" tuition fee makes fans infer that his father must be worthless. be successful together.

In addition, when he had the opportunity to appear on Knowing Bros, Ten also revealed that his family situation is quite "normal": he has a small herd of pets and in his free time, he goes skiing in Switzerland.

"My zoo is not very big. There are only 2 monkeys, 7 puppies and my mother raises 10 flying squirrels."

Ten's passion for art was unintentionally nurtured by his family since childhood thanks to talent classes such as singing and drawing.

Senior Baekhyun (EXO) said Ten's whole b.ody is a work of art, his personality and way of life are also very artistic.
