Playing career

Suwon Samsung Bluewings

He moved to Suwon from Kyung Hee University, making his debut for the K-League club in 1996. He made over 100 appearances during his first spell with the club before moving to Sangmu which is the sports division of the Military of South Korea while serving his mandatory two-year period of military service. He returned to Suwon in 2002 and has remained at the club since then, amassing over 200 league appearances for the club.

International career

Lee has been a member of the Korea Republic national football team since the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. Lee Woon Jae was a part of the 1994 World Cup squad in the United States and was substituted into the game against Germany after the Korean goalkeeper Choi in Young conceded 3 goals. At the 2002 FIFA World Cup, Lee was selected in Guus Hiddink's squad and was first choice keeper ahead of Kim Byung Ji. In 2006, although he was at the age of 33, he still started for South Korea at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, ahead of younger high-profile goalkeepers such as Kim Young Kwang. He captained the side at the 2007 Asian Cup in place of the injured Kim Nam-Il.

Lee is well known for saving vital penalties during international competitions. In the 2002 World Cup, he made football history during the quarter-final between Spain and South Korea, which ended in a draw and went to penalties. After both sides scored their first three penalties, Korea scored its fourth goal, and Lee blocked Spain's fourth shot, taken by the 21-year-old winger Joaquín. Korea scored its fifth penalty and went on to the semi-finals against Germany. In addition, he saved a total of three shootout penalties during the 2007 Asian Cup, two against Iran and one against Japan (they would win both matches and finish third overall). Before the 2007 Asian Cup match against Bahrain, Lee was suspended for a year after he sneaked out from his hotel room and went on a drinking binge in an Indonesian bar along with South Korean teammates Kim Sang-Sik, Woo Sung-Yong and Lee Dong-Gook.

Lee is one of two players (the other being Rigobert Song of Cameroon) to be selected for the 2010 World Cup that were also selected for the 1994 World Cup. He is one of seven players from Asia to play in 4 different World Cups.

He played his last game for the national team in a friendly against Nigeria on 11 August 2010 with a victory of 2–1, and then he retired from the national team.
