According to Overseas Network, the confirmed reporter went to the funeral home of Samsung Seoul Hospital on October 26 to interview Li Jianxi’s funeral activities. The next day (October 27), he developed symptoms and was diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia on November 2.

After learning of his diagnosis, the South Korean Central Epidemic Prevention and Control Headquarters acted quickly and sent urgent reminder text messages to the visitors that day, requesting that they be tested for the new crown virus nearby.

According to Yonhap News Agency, the funeral ceremony of the late Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee was held at Samsung Seoul Hospital in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the morning of the 26th. Samsung’s past and current presidents and other financial and political figures came to offer condolences.

Li Jianxi believed in Yuan Buddhism during his lifetime, and the burial ceremony was carried out in Buddhist ceremonies. Lee Kun-hee’s wife Hong Ra-hee, their children, Samsung Electronics Vice President Lee Jae-yong, Shilla Hotel President Lee Fu-jin, and Samsung Welfare Foundation Director Lee Seo-hyun attended the ceremony. Although Li Jianxi’s family had decided to hold a private family funeral the day before, but due to the continuous flow of condolences from political officials and financial circles, the funeral was changed to a limited number of condolences from outsiders.

Former Deputy Director of the Future Strategy Office of Samsung Group Zhang Zhongji (President), Vice Chairman Jin Qinan and other representatives of Samsung subsidiary directors and presidents, Li Jianxi’s nephew, Hansol Group Chairman Zhao Dongji, and consultant Kwon Wuxuan came to offer condolences.

 Leaving a legacy of nearly 18 trillion won

According to Chinanews.com, on October 25, 2020 local time, Lee Kun-hee, chairman of Samsung Group, passed away in Seoul at the age of 78. He was hospitalized for several years after suffering a heart attack in 2014.

Under his leadership, Samsung became the largest company in South Korea, and Lee Kun-hee was hailed as the most successful entrepreneur in South Korea.

On October 28, 2020, CEO SCORE, a Korean enterprise evaluation website, released statistics showing that Samsung’s total assets increased by more than 76 times during Li Jianxi’s tenure, increasing by more than 790 trillion won (approximately RMB 4.7 trillion), setting a record among the top ten companies in South Korea. The best of the group.

Specifically, from 1987 to 2019, when Li Jianxi took office, Samsung’s total assets increased from 10 trillion won to 803 trillion won, and sales increased from nearly 10 trillion won to 315 trillion won, an increase of 76.2 times and 30.77 times. During the same period, the number of its subsidiaries also increased from 37 to 59.

With the death of Li Jianxi, whether he left a will has also attracted attention from all walks of life. Because according to the way of inheriting the nearly 18 trillion won property (about 105.2 billion yuan) left by Li Jianxi, the promotion and dominance structure of Samsung Group will also change.

Some people believe that Li Jianxi was in a coma in the hospital bed for more than 6 years after he suddenly fainted due to an acute myocardial infarction in May 2014, so he could not leave a will. At the same time, he was active in his activities before he fell ill, so it is believed that he will not leave a will beforehand.

But on the other hand, some people speculate that Li Jianxi wrote his will early. In order to reduce disputes over management rights after the fact, the basic policy of inheritance has been retained.
