Condition of Samsung’s Chairperson

Three months have passed since Mr. Lee Kun-Hee, the Chairperson of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., lost consciousness on May 10th due to acute myocardial infarction and was carried to a hospital.

A major South Korean newspaper, The Chosun Ilbo, reported on August 11th, “He was gradually recovering but is still far from speaking or communicating. Although he has been making more eye contact, it is not certain if he recognizes the person”.

We hope for a smooth recovery of the top leader of the biggest company in South Korea, which has a market capitalization of 20% of South Korean GDP. However, hearing the news about his condition, it is clear that a new management team will have to be established.
