Ryu Lee was in Japan, but left in the middle of quarantine.
According to Joe Lanza and Rich Kraetsch of Voices of Wrestling, Ryu Lee was reportedly sent home from Japan while in the middle of his quarantine. It is unknown why he left and abandoned his quarantine.
Lee was in Japan prior to New Japan Pro-Wrestling releasing its list of participants for Best of Super Juniors 27. Lee was not one of the participants in the tournament. He has competed in the last three Best of Super Juniors tournaments and posted the following tweet on October 8.
The Best of Super Juniors lineup was announced on November 2.

Lee's contract with ROH expires in December. ROH is back on television, but Lee has not been part of the tapings.
