Lee Man-hee (Korean: 이만희; Hanja: 李萬熙; born 15 September 1931) is a Korean religious leader. Lee is the founder of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus the Temple of the Tabernacle of the Testimony (SCJ), a South Korean Christian group, that has been accused of being a religious cult, who has claimed that Jesus Christ appeared before him as a "bright heavenly figure". He has been accused by the press of being a "false prophet".
Lee was born 15 September 1931 in Cheongdo, North Gyeongsang Province, Korea. Before founding his own religious movement, he was a member of the group known as Olive Tree and of another movement called the Tabernacle Temple.
2019–2020 COVID-19 outbreak
On 22 February 2020, South Korea confirmed 231 of their 433 cases of COVID-19 were from within the Shincheonji sect. Lee called the coronavirus a "devil's deed" intended to stop the sect's growth, but he canceled all gatherings of his faith. The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the practice of gathering followers in close quarters for religious services may have contributed to the fast spread of the disease.
