She is a two-time champion on the ISU Junior Grand Prix (2019 JGP Latvia, 2019 JGP Croatia) and the 2019 South Korean national senior bronze medalist.

In January 2018 at the 2018 senior South Korean Championships, Lee was 9th.
In the 2018–2019 season, she debuted in the ISU Junior Grand Prix series.
In March 2019, Lee (along with You Young) represented South Korea at the 2019 World Junior Championships in Zagreb, Croatia. She ranked 14th in the short, which put her in only the third-to-last warm-up group for the free skate. In the free, she placed 7th, raising to 8th overall. (You Young was 11th in the short and 5th in the free skate and finished 6th.)
In July 2019, Lee Hae-in participated in the ISU Junior Grand Prix Korean qualification competition held in Taeneung, South Korea, where she came in first in the short program, free program, and overall. Following the competition, she was selected and assigned to two ISU Junior Grand Prix events, JGP Latvia and JGP Croatia.
At JGP Latvia, she became the third Korean woman ever to become an ISU Junior Grand Prix champion, following Yuna Kim and Kim Hae-jin. She finished third in the short program behind Maiia Khromykh and Daria Usacheva of Russia and the placed first in the free program to win the event with a combined total of 197.63 points, more than three points ahead of silver medalist Usacheva. She set personal best scores in the short program, free program, and overall. This event marked the first Junior Grand Prix event won by a Korean lady since Kim Hae-jin's victory at JGP Slovenia in 2012.
At JGP Croatia, she placed second in the short program with a new personal best, once again behind Daria Usacheva. After a strong free skate in which she once again scored a new personal best, she placed first overall with a new personal best overall score of 203.40, more than six points ahead of Usacheva in second and 21 points ahead of Anna Frolova in third. This marked the first time that Lee scored above 200 points in combined total. With two first-place finishes, Lee qualified to the 2019-20 Junior Grand Prix Final as the third-ranked skater, behind Kamila Valieva of Russia and Alysa Liu of the United States. She was the third Korean lady to ever qualify for the final after Kim Yuna and Kim Ye-lim.
