Kesun Lee’s Profession

In January 2008, Kesun became the Business Manager for Kumon North America in Fulton, Maryland. She worked there until January 2011 before taking up the position of Supervisor at Diane von Furstenberg in February 2011. She also became a part of Damsel in Distress in January of the same year as the Head Stylist. After working both jobs for a significant amount of time, Kesun left Diane von Furstenberg in November 2011 and bid farewell to Damsel in Distress in December 2012.

It was not long before Kesun became a Buyer Assistant at Sass and Bride in January 2014 and served there until December 2014 in Sydney, Australia. She then moved back to New York City and worked as a Stylist at Helmut Lang from June 2015 until July 2016, when she switched jobs and took up the same position at Intermix. The Max star joined Golden Goose Deluxe Brand in October 2016 as a Visual Merchanding Manager, leaving her past job behind.

Is Kesun Lee Dating Anyone?

As of writing, Kesun has not given any update regarding her romantic life. In the show, she did share about her ex-boyfriend, whom she had met in Sydney, and the two had moved to New York City. However, he was apparently not a huge fan of the Big Apple, and they ended up breaking up, given Kesun’s own love for the city. Thanks to the social experiments, she did find people like Larry, whom she connected to romantically. That said, Kesun seems to be keeping the details of her romantic life close to her heart, though given her participation in the Max series, we do know that she has long dreamt of being with someone who would have similar interests as her and cherish her with all her heart. We wish Kesun the best in her romantic endeavors and hope that her dreams for the same come true very soon.
