In 2005, Lee released his first solo album, No Pain, No Gain.[1][2] The album received disappointing sales. In 2007, he released his second album Lee Jae Won Vol. 1.5 the single "I'm So Hot" which a part of the song samples a rhythm from Mariah Carey's It's Like That. Again the album received disappointing sales. In 2008, he was accused of rape and was arrested. The charges were dropped 3 hours later, but because of the event, he was unable to release his next album.[3] In 2012, Jae Won released his new album in Chinese language. The album title is It's the time. It's received a positive response from fans in China. During his comeback performance, it was speculated that he will be planning to bring back the H.O.T. group to make a new album.

Military service[edit]

In 2009, Lee enlisted for his compulsory military service, where he served for 22 months at the Ministry of National Defense in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. He was discharged on 7 March 2011 [4] to an H.O.T. Reunion.
