    Lee Dong-hyuck (Korean: 이동혁; born June 6, 2000), better known by his stage name Haechan (Korean: 해찬), is a South Korean singer managed by SM Entertainment. He is a member of the boy group NCT and its sub-units NCT 127, NCT Dream, and NCT U.

    Early life

    Haechan was born on June 6, 2000, in Seoul, South Korea, where he lived until he was seven years old. He then moved to Jeju, South Korea for about five years before moving back to Seoul, where he attended the School of Performing Arts Seoul. He is the oldest of four siblings.


    In 2013, Haechan joined SM Entertainment after passing the SM Saturday Open Auditions, where he sang “Baby” by Justin Bieber, “Hello” by Huh Gak, and “Ugly Duckling” by Son Seung Yeon.

    On July 17, 2014, he was introduced as a member of SM Rookies, a pre-debut training team managed by SM Entertainment.

    On July 2, 2016, SM Entertainment revealed that Haechan would debut as a member of NCT’s second sub-unit, NCT 127. The group released its first single, “Firetruck”, on July 7. On August 19, SM Entertainment announced that Haechan would join NCT’s third sub-unit, NCT Dream. The group debuted with the digital single “Chewing Gum” on August 25.

    On March 6, 2022, Haechan was set to release a remake of the 2001 Toy’s song “Good Person” for the soundtrack of the Playlist Studio’s web drama Ply Friends: Seoyeon University Class of ’22. However, CJ ENM announced that the release of the song would be anticipated by one day to “repay fans” for their enthusiastic reactions.


    In February 2023, Haechan donated ₩100 million to help victims of the 2023 Turkey–Syria earthquake to the Community Chest of Korea, joining its Honor Society.
