Career[edit]

Childhood[edit]

2010–11[edit]

Lee started working with Chi Hyun-jung as his coach in 2010.[6] Lee placed 3rd at both the Korean Junior Grand Prix qualification trials and the Korean Nationals.

2011–12[edit]

The 2011–12 season was Lee's breakthout season.[7] Lee included 5 different triple jumps in his program and improved jump consistency.[6] In August, He was selected to represent Team Korea by placing 2nd at the Korean Junior Grand Prix qualification trials. At Asian Trophy, he placed 2nd at the junior discipline. Lee debuted in the 2011–12 Junior Grand Prix series at JGP Latvia and placed 4th.

He placed 18th at the World Junior Championships.[9]

2012–13[edit]

He started the season with a new free program, "Queen medley", but returned to his previous season's free program, "The Barber of Seville", at his first Junior Grand Prix event. He won South Korean Nationals, but could not compete at the Senior World Championships because he did not meet the minimum technical score requirement for the event. He placed 13th at the World Junior Championships. In February, he landed a triple Axel jump during the short program segment at the Four Continents Championships.

2013–14[edit]

In the middle of the season, he changed his free skating from "The Planets" to another one. The new program, "The Phantom of the Opera", was shown at the Korean Nationals. At the nationals, with total score of 206.88, Lee became the first Korean male skater who scored over 200 points in domestic competitions.[citation needed] In February, He placed 14th at the 2013 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Taipei. In March, he placed 16th at the World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.

2014–15[edit]

Competing in the 2014–15 JGP series, Lee won gold at his first event, JGP France, with overall score of 203.81.[2] This accomplishment made him the first South Korean male figure skater winning an ISU event.[10] By placing 3rd at JGP Croatia, he qualified for ISU Junior Grand Prix Final for the first time as a Korean male skater.[2][11][12] In December, at the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final in Barcelona, Spain, he placed fifth in the short program and sixth in the free skating to place sixth place overall.[13]

In January, Lee beat his rival, Kim Jin-seo, to win his second national title.[14] He was nominated to the South Korean team for the 2015 Four Continents Championship. At the competition, he placed fifteenth in the short program and nineteenth in the free skate to place eighteenth overall.[15] He placed 19th at the 2015 World Figure Skating Championships.[9]

2015–16[edit]

During the summer, Lee was involved in a traffic accident as a passenger. A car driven by his mother was struck from behind by another car. After this incident, Lee started having back problems.[16]

Lee opened the 2015–16 figure skating season by placing 10th at the 2015 Finlandia Trophy. He participated in the 2015 Skate Canada International with his new coach Shin Hea-Sook and placed 12th.[17][18]
