According to Fine Cut, Malkin described Lee’s work as elegant, yet warm and inclusive, and that the strong and resilient female image she wants to show through her works is so strong and encouraging.

She directed “Love Alarm” (2019), the first Netflix Original series in Korea, which is based on Chon Kye-young’s successful webtoon of the same name. She also directed “Snowy Road” (2015), which aired on KBS as a Prix Italia-winning drama miniseries.
