Graduated from high school in Seoul in 2010. Attended Korean Sports University, the same school as fellow 2018 Korn Ferry Tour grad Sungjae Im.
Is an only son.
If not a professional golfer, would be a singer. Took lessons in South Korea and considered a career as a singer. While he is shy singing in front of others, has a very good voice. Enjoys listening to rock music.
Was a shot put athlete before taking up golf at age 13. Started golf to lose weight, but ended up falling in love with the game.
Motto is "A rolling stone gathers no moss."
Bucket list item is a tour around the world and riding a motorcycle.
Started a junior golf tournament in Seoul, titled the Lee Kyoung Hoon Junior Golf Tournament held every April/May. Grew up playing junior golf tournaments and wanted to return the favor.
Close with LPGA players Sei Young Kim and Hana Hang.
