Father’s Day 2018

More About Mr. Lee and Kenny LeeOld School Father vs. New School Son

In a recent Las Vegas Review Journal special feature article, Kenny Lee shared his memories of growing up with Lee’s Discount Liquor founder Hae Un Lee as a father. Kenny reflected that even though Mr. Lee was strict, they enjoyed a playful relationship that can be seen even today in the TV commercials.

Kenny reminisced further how his father wanted him to grow up to be a doctor or a lawyer. Which resulted in Kenny initially pursuing optometry at Loyola Marymount.

However, during his sophomore year he shifted gears and decided that he would rather join the family business. So back in 1992, after having earned a business management degree, he returned to the fold of the family business. The place where he first began to hone his work ethic at the young age of 12 years old.
