"I should have studied and practiced more before I stood in front of the audience as an actor." He admitted. "That's why I didn't take on any projects for a year once [the KBS2 drama] Shark was over. I built up my body as I worked out, I put on some weight and I practiced acting and it was a time of change for me." Lee also discussed the first professional failure he faced. He reminisced, "I debuted as a model when I was 17 and I was lucky to receive so much love. I was confident about myself and I went to Paris with the intention to stand on stage during Paris collection shows. I spent more than a month over there in order to go to casting sessions, but none of them worked out." However, Lee didn't give up on his dream! He added, "The fact that I didn't get to have my start in the Paris collection shows was something I felt sad about, even after I started acting. That's why I went back to Paris to try once again to walk the runway, while taking a break from acting for a year...Fortunately, I was able to join five shows including the one for Balenciaga, Balmain and Juun.J."
