Lee, who is the son of famous Taiwanese TV actor Lee Hisng-Wen, was arrested on Thursday last week and has been charged with indecent conduct and unlawful entry, according to Taipei Times.
He had uploaded footage of the stunt to his YouTube channel, which has almost 4,000 subscribers, earlier the same day.
In the footage, Lee can be seen walking into an IKEA store just as it is about to close before making his way to the stock room where he hides himself between stacks of cardboard boxes.
He remains in his hiding spot until around 3am the following morning, when he emerges and begins to explore the store.
Lee, who says he is streaming to Facebook, tells his audience that he is heading up to the fourth floor where some of the displays are located.
Lee has been charged with indecent conduct as well as illegal entry over the stunt, and reportedly apologised to police in his interview
The stunt drew controversy online, including some who blasted Lee – saying that staff or security guards could lose their jobs as a result

After setting off an alarm on one of the floors Lee finally makes it up to the fourth floor where he begins laying down in the display beds and even sleeps in one for several hours.
At 5.40am all the lights turn on and he begins to explore some more, standing on tables, getting into a baby’s cot with a towel on his head, and pretending to masturbate while sat at a computer.
By 9am the store has opened at which point he goes downstairs to where the staff are and pretends to be the first customer in the shop.
Not realising he has spent the night in the store, one of the assistants tells him they’re not ready to open yet and shows him towards the exit.
‘We’ve successfully completed the mission,’ he says as he leaves.
The YouTuber also gets up on tables, sleeps in one of the beds, and jumps off of chairs
Lee posted the video to his YouTube channel, where he has some 4,000 subscribers, and also streamed part of the ’24 hour challenge’ live on Facebook
After the video was posted on Thursday many were quick to hit out at Lee, saying that staff or security personnel could lose their jobs over his stunt.
The store manager reported the footage to the police shortly after it was uploaded, who quickly arrested Lee.
While at the station Lee reportedly apologised for his conduct and said his father was ‘not pleased’ with him.
The video has since been removed from both his Facebook and YouTube pages.
Mail Online has contacted Lee for comment but had not heard back at the time of publication.
