Daniel Armand Lee (Korean: Lee Seon-woong; Hangul: 이선웅; born July 22, 1980), better known by his stage name Tablo (Hangul: 타블로), is a Korean-Canadian hip hop recording artist, lyricist, composer and record producer. Tablo is best known as the leader and producer of veteran Korean hip-hop group Epik High, and the founder of independent music label HIGHGRND (High Ground)

In mid-2010, a group of internet users raised doubts about the academic background of Tablo, who majored in English and Creative Writing at Stanford University. Tablo’s popularity in South Korea was attributed, in part, to his Ivy-League education which was appealing to older generations (parents) as a marker for success and to younger fans who saw Tablo as a role model for following an alternative and creative path to success.  Even though Tablo provide proof of his Standford education multiple times, many skeptics continued to question its validity.
