KI HONG LEE (Ryan Hui) stars as the lead runner Minho in the
Maze Runner franchise. After two successful box office showings for The Maze
Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Lee will be back in the third
instalment Maze Runner: The Death Cure set for release January 2018. Lee also
appeared in The Stanford Prison Experiment, winner of Sundance's best screenplay
and Alfred P. Sloan prizes, alongside Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller and Olivia
Lee has also received rave reviews for his comedic side on the Netflix's
"Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" as Dong, the love interest of Ellie Kemper's Kimmy.
Receiving multiple Emmy nominations, the show was created and written by Tina
Fey and Robert Carlock ("30 Rock," "Saturday Night Live").
Breaking out in 2014, Lee was featured in People's "Ones to Watch" and "Sexiest
Man Alive" issues, as well as Teen Vogue's "Young Hollywood" issue. Many also
know Lee from the beloved character Paul in ABC Family's "The Nine Lives of
Chloe King." Additional television credits include "Modern Family" and "New
Girl." He appeared in the film adaptation of Yellowface from the Tony
award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang. While he has recently stepped away
from the stage to be in front of the camera, his love for theater is still very
strong. His theater debut was in Los Angeles at the East West Players in the
play Wrinkles, which will always have a special place in Lee's heart, as it was
the first time his father was able to see him perform.
Although being raised in different cultures, from Seoul to Auckland, Lee still
considers himself to be a Californian at heart. A graduate of University of
California at Berkeley, he has served in some form of student government
throughout his schooling, which has only grown his passion for people, education
and good causes. Lee's acting career started at an early age. While performing
in church skits, he realized his love and passion for being on stage. This love
of acting, which was cultivated by his church plays, stays with him today.
Lee currently resides in Los Angeles.
