After honing his acting in one-act dramas, Lee first gained popularity on television in romantic comedies Dal-Ja's Spring and I Really Really Like You. He then starred in the quirky low-rated cult series Four Gold Chasers and alternated mainstream films with indies. He gained favorable notices for his supporting role in the Korean blockbuster Haeundae, in which he plays a lifeguard who makes a heartbreaking sacrifice when a fictional tsunami hits the Korean beach town of Haeundae. Lee then solidified his bona fide movie star status with his leading role in the action film Quick.
After performing a stylized version of "My Way" at the 2008 Mnet KM Music Festival, Lee lent his vocals to a track with Korean electronica/pop singer Sheean in a collaboration with Japanese electronica/Shibuya-kei artist FreeTEMPO. The song, titled "Power of Love", was released as a digital single, and Lee also appeared in the music video. He later stated he was working on material for an upcoming album. On August 11th, 2009 he unveiled his musical debut No Kidding, a six track EP with a very indie-electro rock sound. The album's title song "Eternal Summer" (영원한 여름) was the first and only single released; it was also made into a music video. Due to lack of promotion the album did not receive much commercial success, but received moderately positive reviews from critics. Lee is signed to KT Music Korea.
