    Yes. His parents are teachers. His father is a headmaster. They are kind of like the parents in The Wedding Banquet. They think decent jobs only include teacher, doctor, lawyer, etc. However, director is not one of them. After Ang Lee got his first Oscar, his father said something like, you already got Oscar, you've played enough, come back to teach.
