Lee’s parents emigrated from South Korea before he was born, eventually establishing a chain of clothing stores in San Diego. Lee attended Poway High School in Poway, California, but his teenage years were quite a difficult time as he suffered from attention deficit disorder which affected his grades. He also struggled with self-image issues, which led him to enter drug rehab. Lee briefly attended Pallomar College in San Diego, but also worked in local restaurants and coffee shops, and then started to work at the Comedy Store in San Diego, also known as the La Jolla Comedy Store. While watching comedians perform at the club, he soon found himself on the stage doing amateur comedy. After a year of doing stand-up comedy acts, he was spotted by Pauly Shore and Carlos Mensia, who asked Lee to open for them. Shore also hired him to work at his mother’s comedy club in LA.

Lee subsequently made his film debut in 1999, in “The Underground Comedy Movie”, playing the role of a Chinese Man. In 2001 he was cast in the popular 1995 comedy sketch television series “MadTV”, as a featured performer for the show’s seventh season. During the following season he became a repertory cast member and remained in the show until its cancellation in 2009; the show was based on the seminal Mad Magazine, and was a mixture of sketches, cartoon shorts and musical performances, which satirized celebrities, television shows, music videos and similar. Lee was the only Asian to ever appear in the show. Since he joined the cast, he has created many memorable characters, such as the film critic Johnny Gan, the interpreter Bae Sung and the Blind Kung-Fu Master, as well as performing a number of impressive impersonations. “MadTV” aired for 14 seasons, and was nominated for and won a number of awards. It made Lee highly popular and greatly contributed to his net worth.

The show quickly led the comedian to several TV appearances, including “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” in 2002. The following year he appeared in the mocumentary “Pauly Shore Is Dead”, then in 2004 he played the role of Kenneth Park in the comedy film “Harrold and Kumar Go to White Castle”, before going on to star in the comedy tour act and film “Kims of Comedy”. He made guest appearances in the 2006 television series “Mind of Mencia” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. The following year saw him in the film “Pineapple Express” taking the role of an Asian drug gangster Bobby and in the comedy film “Kickin It Ald Skool” as Aki ‘Chilly Chill” Terasaki. In 2012 Lee took the role of a Chinese diplomat Mr. Lao in the political satire black comedy “The Dictator” and he had a leading role as Dr. Robert Yamamoto in the short-lived comedy series “Animal Practice”.

Lee has provided voice for characters such as Danny in the adult animated series “American Dad” and Tim/Sumo in the series “The Awesomes”. He also appeared in Eminem’s music video for the single “We Made You”, in the music video by “Wonder Girls” for their single “2 Different Tears”, as well as in Taio Cruz’s music video for the single “Hangover”. He has been a recurring guest of the podcast DVDASA. His most recent television appearance has been in the 2016 comedy series “Love”. All projects have added to Lee’s wealth.

Speaking of his private life, Lee apparently hasn’t been married; sources believe he is single.
