Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee Suffers Major Heart Attack

Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee Suffers Major Heart Attack

Posted May 11, 2014 at 4:26pm by iClarified
Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee, Apple nemesis and the richest man in Korea, has suffered a serious heart attack, reports Fortune.

Kun-hee had to be resuscitated and undergo surgery following an acute myocardial infarction. He is said to be in stable condition at Samsung Medical Center.

Lee transformed Samsung from a manufacturer of low quality knock-offs into one of the world's leading manufacturers of everything from smartphones to ships. Apple has accused the company of copying its devices but still relies on it to manufacture various components of its mobile devices.


Fortune notes that Lee is also famous for his criminal record. Here are a few highlights they compiled:

● In 1996, Chairman Lee was one of nine South Korean businessmen charged and convicted of bribing former President Roh Tae Woo. Lee said the money was a gift. Four of the businessmen were sent to prison. Lee received a suspended sentence and, later, a presidential pardon.
● In a second high-profile case in 2008, Lee was cleared of bribery charges but convicted of tax evasion and financial wrongdoing. He was fined 110 billion won (nearly $100 million) and given a 3-year suspended jail term. A few months later he got his second presidential pardon.
● In 2010 Samsung's former chief legal counsel published a book called Think Samsung that claimed Lee stole up to 10 trillion won ($8.9 billion) from Samsung subsidiaries, destroyed evidence, and bribed government officials to ensure the smooth transfer of power to his son.

Karma is not ultimately a cause effect relationship. It is part of a larger way of life teaching that points us to see how our nature-mind patterns bring about impasses in our selves/ lives. If one does "good things" or "bad things" either outcome can occur as karma. The teaching espouses adherence to a divine way if life which ever way things roll though, so that we can evolve spiritually, or psycho-neurologically if that phase pleases a nihilist mind like urs.

What I meant is Samsung is still $hit and always will be copycat knockoff $hit but the guy is a human being who is sick and it's not cool to make fun of that. He is not necessarily a bad man, just conducts shady business. Other people in history are evil. You're right about it not being karma though. $hit happens to good and bad people alike.

It's ok to make fun of Samshit for the crap it is and it's ok to even point out the not so nice business practices he made. It's also ok to point out they still manufacture glorified knock offs. It's NOT ok to make fun of his failing health and calm it karma. Steve Jobs health failed and it had nothing to do with Karma. We are humans and are imperfect machines. Ease off of that shit.

Yes, there are some who are always like that and will never learn. From Wiki - "Smack talk can also be used with bullying, whether that be face-to-face interaction, or cyber-bullying." Anyone who talks like that are probably bullies.

It's funny how someone made a book on apple with haunted empire in the title, yet this guy gets the death penalty. This explains why Apple is the same even without Jobs.

Guys. Some of you don't like samsung, I get it, Specially if you are apple fan. But keep in mind if wasn't for samsung, Nobody could afford buy an iPhone. No company could be apple competitor meaning monopoly for apple. Apple could rise the price each year!

After all the gimmicking and copying they lived for only? What good is he for. Why would Apple help a wannabe? Is he that important compared to what the "list of top 50 worlds greatest leaders" says?

If you run a company with its name on the hospital, it's IGNORANCE that is to blame for not checking on your health. NOT assumption that you are healthy. LIFE has no price when all the money in the world is not use to insure you are healthy.
