Ki Hong Lee starred in "Unseen Face" for the January issue of GQ.

The black-and-white pictorial featured an elegant wardrobe that included a Balenciaga paint-splattered blazer, Gucci dress shirt, and Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo. Since Lee has starred in the American film series Maze Runner and the Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the magazine referred to him as a "fearless leader" in Hollywood.

Lee discussed a variety of topics during the interview. The actor revealed that he decided to study psychology at University of California because he enjoyed helping his friends when they had problems. He also chose English actor Tom Hardy as an inspiration because of his international appeal. When asked to name his best and worst qualities, he explained that he is extremely responsible but that same aspect can make him critical.

The star also shared one of the few regrets he has about his career.

He stated, "Korean movies are so wonderful. They make me wonder. If I had started acting in Korea when I was young, I think there would have been an opportunity to play the child counterpart of a famous actor. So unfortunate."

In related news, Ki Hong Lee recently discussed making People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive list.
