I'm a little bit surprised that JYP has so many idols who came from privileged backgrounds. And then even more impressed that JYP company culture has educated them well to still be humble and hard-working, rather than relying on their status.

Tzuyu, if the blogs I read about her were right, have parents who are really successful business people. Aside from restaurants, they also own a chain of health clinics in Taiwan.

Lia, on the other hand, not sure what her family's business is or the nature of her parent's jobs but she lived in Canada as a kid and when she came to Korea, she was sent to an elite international school in Jeju Island with 60M Korean won as annual tuition. She also went back and forth from Jeju and Gangnam because she was also taking private lessons there. When she became a trainee in JYP, she transferred to SOPA.

I just realized that JYP has a lot of rich kids as trainees and idols in his ward. Amazing to know that the company was able to raise them well, they don't seem to be entitled and bratty. No vibe of being a diva. Tzuyu, especially. I really find that girl so level headed despite her popularity and rich background. Can't forget that time she went to Cambodia during their long break to celebrate her birthday with underprivileged kids.
