  1. This is very surprising! I had no idea that Philip Lee was a rich kid. I guess this remarkable actor was trying to be simple as possible as he could. I think he’s trying to avoid issues regarding about his family’s wealth.

    Since it was already reported that he was a rich kid. I had no doubt that he will be the successor of the family business. And I will be the first to feel sad if he will quit acting.
