    though Lee Soo Man lost 1/3 of his stock value, I just can't feel bad for a man who tried misused so many young idols and made them into "slaves" of SME.

    You clearly don't know anything about LSM. Almost all the SM artists (yes, even TVXQ, Shinhwa, H.O.T who are not part of SM anymore) think of him as their father and thank him all the time. I've seen videos of him interacting with the idols and he's a really humble guy. Stop painting him as an evil guy when you know nothing. He hasn't been CEO for years now.
