Lee Seo Won is a South Korean actor. He graduated from high school in 2015 and made his acting debut the same year. After a two-year break in 2017, Lee entered Sejong University as a film major and now belongs to Blossom Entertainment.
On May 16, 2018, news broke that Lee was charged with sexual harassment and threatening a female celebrity with a weapon. Lee was charged and investigated on April 8, before the police sent his case to the prosecution with a recommendation of an indictment. According to authorities, Lee was drinking with said female celebrity when he attempted to kiss her and make physical contact but was rejected. After continuous attempts for physical contact, the victim called her boyfriend to ask for help, which caused Lee to threaten her with a knife. Lee remained silent and continued filming the 2018 television series About Time and host Music Bank for 40 days without informing the production staff that he is under investigation. However, when news broke out, Lee, who was supposed to appear in About Time, was pulled out and his scenes were re-filmed using another actor. He was also removed from his role as the host of Music Bank.
On July 12, the first day of the trial, Lee pled guilty to charges of sexual harassment and criminal threats. Lee's attorney stated that they acknowledge guilt since Lee's DNA was detected on the victim's ear and he was apprehended by police while holding a knife. However, he also stated that Lee was "unable to remember anything from the incident" and was "not in control of his body", and requested a lenient sentence due to Lee's "diminished mental and physical faculties" caused by intoxication.
