Lee returned to the romantic comedy genre in 2013 with How to Use Guys with an inspirational video,Instructions on How To Use Men.

Lee was the standout in the cast and was praised for her portrayal of a spoiled, Paris Hilton-esque chaebol heiress, despite mixed reviews for the series itself.

Lee played her first big screen leading role in the screwball romantic comedy Meet the In-Laws, which portrays the struggles of a comic book writer to tie the knot with his girlfriend over the strong disapproval of their families. In the comedy Descendants of Hong Gil-dong, Lee played the love interest of Lee Beom-soo, a Joseon-era Robin Hood whose family for generations has passed down the tradition of stealing only from the rich and giving to the poor while keeping their actions secret. Lee’s follow-up was the ensemble romantic comedycaper film Couples, where she again displayed her gift for physical comedy as a shameless gold digger.
