Sung Hi Lee (born April 1, 1970) is a Korean American model and actress, who appears mostly in soft-core nude photoshoots. She has been featured in Playboy magazine as well as in numerous other magazines and some commercial advertising. She is considered to be a pioneer (in the United States) in the area of Asian nude photography, becoming one of the first fully Asian models to achieve success.
Lee has worked as an actress, appearing in films such as A Night On the Water (1998), Error in Judgment (1998), Chain of Command (2000), Nurse Betty (2000), This Girl's Life (2003), Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure (2003), and Ferrari in The Girl Next Door (2004). She has also appeared on television, in the Queen of Swords episode "The Dragon" (2001) and landing roles such as DC Comics villain Lady Shiva in 2002's Birds of Prey and the waitress Sophie on the soap opera Days of our Lives. In 2007 she played Tricia Tanaka in the Lost episode "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead" and also appeared in the series premiere of the FOX sitcom Back to You. In 2008, Lee appeared in the action film The Art of War 3: Retribution (2009) as Sun Yi, and as Crystal in the comedy Tripping Forward (2009).
Lee has also had an impressive career in modeling, ranging from high profile adult magazines such as Playboy (in which she was the first Asian model to feature on the cover) to advertisements for Acer Computers, Chrysler, Brut, Miller Beer, Mountain Dew, Maxwell House and Sunkist Juice.
In February 2011, Lee announced that her website, www.sung-hi.com, was closing down shortly, citing that life was just becoming too busy with her one-year-old daughter to keep it running.
