Lee Know (리노 rino) was born on October 25, 1998 (age 25) in Gimpo, South Korea. He is a main dancer, vocalist, rapper and visual[2] of the group Stray Kids

Personal life

Lee Min-ho was born on October 25, 1998 in Gimpo, South Korea. He grew up in Daegot-myeon[3].

He adopted his first cat Soonie in 2011 and his second cat Doongie around 2013.

When he was in middle school, he watched a dance video that made him want to take dance classes.[4] He joined Souldance Studio in Seoul and stayed there for five years, attending BICO's classes.

While doing dance gigs and completing his education, he had several part time jobs in order to pay transport fares and cram schools.[5][6]

He graduated from Gimpo Jeil Technical High School in computer sciences.[7] He passed an entrance exam at the Chugye University For The Arts with a self choreography[8] and joined the campus on March 2017. He kept attending even after debuting, but left at some point.

He adopted his third cat, Dori, in February 2019.

He is currently enrolled at Gukje Cyber University under the Department of Entertainment Studies.[9]

In November 2023, he participated in the "Love Your W" campaign by W Korea to raise awareness about breast cancer. [10]

On February 29, 2024, it was announced that Lee Know had donated 100 million won to World Vision's "Global Hunger Crisis Response" project to help children face food shortages in the poorest countries, and was appointed as a member of the "Bob Pierce" donors club.[11].

Career

2016-2017: Predebut

Lee Min-ho pursued dancing professionally. He participated in various dance competitions with his crew "Cupcakes", such as "World of Dance" in 2016[12]. Around the same time, he became a backup dancer for BTS, from the songs "Fire" to "Spring Day".[13] and participated in the "Wings Tour" in early 2017. During his backup dancing career, he realized that he wanted to stand at the center of the stage, so he became a singer.[14]

Minho had auditioned for JYP Entertainment back in 2015 after being noticed during a global dance event, but he didnt hear from them and thought he had failed. He continued his life as a dancer, until he was finally called back two years later[13]. He joined JYPE on July 15, 2017, making the last member of Stray Kids to join the lineup.[15]

His individual picture and name were officially revealed by the company on October 11, 2017 at noon, for his participation in the upcoming survival show Stray Kids.[16] He was introduced with the role "Dance". During the show, he was eliminated on episode 4 because he lacked confidence and made mistakes while rapping, but he was brought back for a last chance on the final broadcast on December 19, 2017. Through the audience voting in favor of the 9-member group over the 7-member group, it was then confirmed that Min-ho would debut with the boy group Stray Kids.

2018-present: Stray Kids

On March 26, 2018, Minho debuted under the stage name "Lee Know" with the mini album I am NOT as the main dancer and sub vocalist of Stray Kids.[17] He also has the unofficial role of dance leader, as he leads the group's dance practices and helps the other members with learning the choreos through his previous experience in dancing.

On July 3, 2019, Lee Know choreographed and released the dance performance "DAWN" as part of the SKZ-PLAYER series.

On July 3, 2021, Lee Know co-wrote and released the song "Drive" for the SKZ-PLAYER series along with Bang Chan.

On August 14, 2021, Lee Know became a fixed MC at Show! Music Core with NCT Jungwoo and former IZ*ONE Kim Minju.[18]

Lee Know co-wrote and co-composed his original and first solo song "Limbo" for the best album SKZ-REPLAY, released on December 21, 2022.

On November 4, 2023, he stepped down of his duties at Show! Music Core after more than two years of MCing.[19]

On February 22, 2024, Lee Know released a cover of DAY6's "Love me or Leave me", his first solo SKZ-RECORD release.

On March 25, 2024, Lee Know opened his personal Instagram account, Instagram Icon @t.leeknowsaurus.

Artistry

Lee Know's initial dance genre (and his favorite) is hip-hop, with a recognizable style of the Souldance studio he was part of. His dancing is characterized by a neat isolation of body parts, as well as sharp yet smooth movements following the beat with the right intensity.

Vocally, Lee Know is known for his falsettos.

Even though he never had an official rapper role, J.Y. Park asked Lee Know to take rap parts during the survival show, as he deemed his voice too weak for singing. This led him to get assigned with shorter lines, both rapping and singing. Even though he has more frequent singing parts, rap parts he did became some of his most famous lines, like his introductory rap in "Boxer".
