– He was born in Changsha, Hunan, China.
– Family: Grandparents, whom he lived with when he was a child.
– He used to be a local child star in China, making appearances at many variety shows.
– In 2015 he won 3rd place in TV Star Academy (Hunan Economics TV show).
– In 2008, Lay was cast into SM Entertainment through one of their global audition.
- The company gave him his stage name as there is a character in a TV show called Huaze Lei, who is quiet, plays the violin and is talented and likes music quite a bit. It also happens to sound like the Chinese word for tired, "Lei".
– He was officially introduced as an EXO member on January 17th, 2012.
– He was supposed to be EXO-M’s leader but it was changed to Kris.
– He arrived at SM the same day as Luhan. That’s how they became close.
– Personality: Humble, easy-going, funny, hard-working, mischievous at times, forgetful.
– Lay has a 4D personality.
– On stage, he’s strong and charismatic, but off the stage, he is humorous and playful.
– Habit: He likes to sleep on the living room’s hard floors. (He says that the temperature is cooler there and that sleeping in a different location allows him to dream different dreams.)
– He is fluent in Chinese and Korean.
– He can practice for a very long time. (At one point, he arrived at SM Entertainment in the early morning, and didn’t live until the dawn of the next day.)
– He is a bit slow to react. An example would be if someone says a joke and everyone else is laughing, Lay would laugh about a minute later (after he understands the joke).
– His hobbies are: cooking, dancing, playing piano and guitar, playing on the computer, mastering the Korean language, composing songs.
– His favorite foods are tidbits, junk food, anything he cooks.
– He loves eating fruits.
– His favorite colors are purple and black.

– He likes to write lyrics and compose music.
– He takes the longest time to learn the choregraphies.
– He likes to dance in the dark.

– He acted in the movie “Kung Fu Yoga” (2017).
– Lay’s ideal type is someone who is cute and filial.
- He's terrified of birds, mostly pigeons.
- He has an extremely sensitive neck. Seriously. Don't breathe on this boys neck.
- He also really likes butts. Like, REALLY likes butts. He even wrote a song about how much he loves butts. (Peach)
- He has two wax figures at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. One in Beijing of him in modern clothes, and one in Shanghai of his "The Mystic Nine" character, Er Yue Hong.
- He has a blood coagulation disorder (possibly haemophilia) where his body has trouble forming blood clots. (If he gets cut he bleeds a lot.)
- Lay is currently on hiatus from EXO but is still a very much loved member (and we are all waiting on his comeback)
