His football skills were highly praised by then manager of Jeonbuk, Choi Kang-hee

He has been the victim of racial abuse

Like some of the other players in football, Lee has also been the victim of racial abuse. 

His post on his Naver blog addressing racial abuse and sharing his personal experience came after Wolverhampton Wanderers filed a complaint with UEFA regarding the racial abuse Hwang-Hee chan faced during a friendly match in Portugal

He felt he needed to confront the issue as it is a growing problem for Korean Players and shared his own personal experience. 

He began with his first experience while playing for the German side Holstein Kiel

According to him, one of his teammates walked into a room and started questioning what he had been eating, which made him so conscious of the smell of garlic that he started avoiding crowds, stopped eating Korean foods, and even started putting on cologne before going to training to avoid criticisms. 

He was made fun of for his eyes, and he used to get asked to open his eyes during training.

Also, outside of football, he faced racism. While traveling in Germany, a group of drunk people passed derogatory comments and insults. 

Stating that the issue of racism is not only confined to Korean Players in Europe, he admitted witnessing the attitude of Korean players and fans towards foreign players in the K league while playing in Korea and was guilty of the way they treated them.
