Football career

When Lee attending Bupyeong High School, he was expected to be the future of Korean football with Choi Tae-Uk.

In 2002, Lee scored seven goals in K-League and made the World Cup squad. After the World Cup, he moved to Real Sociedad of Spain, becoming the first Korean to play in the Spanish La Liga. After a mediocre season, however, he was moved on loan to fellow Spanish side Numancia, before returning to Ulsan Hyundai Horang-i of South Korea's K-League.

Though Lee joined Ulsan in mid-season, his performance proved to be invaluable to Ulsan's capture of the 2005 league title with a hat trick in the first leg of the finals. He was subsequently named the K-League's Most Valuable Player on December 28, 2005.

In the 2006 World Cup, he scored Korea's first goal with a free kick against Togo in a 2-1 win.

In summer 2008, Lee joined Feyenoord of the Netherlands but he failed to adapt to the country.

In July 2008, Feyenoord officially announced Lee's loan to Korean powerhouse Suwon Samsung Bluewings for a one-year deal. But he performed poorly for Suwon and had clashes with the coaching staff. He was suspended from the K-League by Suwon.

After few months, Suwon released him and on February 26, 2009, he was loaned to the Chunnam Dragons until July 31, 2009. On June 13, 2009, he signed with the Dragons.[1] In the last week of June 2009, however, a secret contract was exposed. Feyenoord tried to transfer Lee to Al Nassr and he had trouble getting along while at Chunnam, which released him.

He also left Saudi Arabia while still under contract with Al Nassr. He eventually joined Omiya of Japan.

Personal life

He began dating Korean actress Kim Ji-Yoo in 2005. She won the title of Miss Korea in 2001. At one point, rumours surfaced that he proposed to her, but he later denied these, saying he wasn't thinking about marriage in the near future. They broke up in August 2006.[2]

After this, he dated with a Korean entertainer Shim Eun Jin, who was once a member of Baby V.O.X.. However, They also broke up in May 2008.
