Most notable among her many short movies are (2014), which marked the first time she shared the direction with actor and director Koo Kyo Hwan, best known for Jane (2016).

For Girls on top (2017), Lee managed to get the participation of star actress Chun Woo Hee. She also contributed to the anthology Now Playing (2014), which was made to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Seoul Independent Film Festival. Her debut feature, Maggie (2018), became the 14th film project officially supported by the National Human Rights Commission of the Republic of Korea, as it touches upon several social issues, like spy-cam porn, unemployment, real estate and city redevelopment, that often make the headlines in Korea.
