Lee wrote and directed his debut feature Like a Virgin (2006) (with director Lee Hae-jun), which won several awards for Best New Director and Best Screenplay. His first solo feature Foxy Festival (2010) is a comedy that showed people with seemingly abnormal sexual tastes as SM, transvestism, and doll fetishism are in real life absolutely normal otherwise. His third feature is a mystery genre film The Silenced (2015).[1][2][3][4]
