The 'Asia Game Changer Awards' was first held in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller the 3rd with the purpose of recognizing those who annually improve the future of society in the fields of politics, economics, the arts, culture, social issues, educations, and more as "game changers." 


During Lee Soo Man's introduction, he was introduced as the one to thank for "allowing K-Pop to become the worldwide sensation it is today as well as creating numerous markets for its expansion." He was coined as a "music game changer" and awarded alongside several other representatives from Asia. 


Others who attended the ceremony and received awards include Chinese film director Zhang Yimou, architect I.M. Pei, doctor Sanduk Ruit, orchestral conductor Karim Wasfi, and more.

    HOT, SES, BoA, TVXQ, SuJu, SNSD, and the list just goes on. LSM is the guy everyone else tries to keep up with. And CEO or not, he STILL has a say in what goes on at the company that bears his name. Congrats!

    It's great and all, but @beansss you do know that Lee Soo-Man isn't the CEO, right? Or did you just assume he is because he founded the company?

    Much admiration for his passion for music and as a business man who enriched an industry in trouble. K-pop artists and above all the production are such hardworkers : the art direction, the staging, the choreo, the costumes, the styling, the concept, the songs, the decorative staging scene, etc, blow the discipline to an art of staging and become a real spectacle. Each performances are conceptual masterpiece of dancing and singing, sharing so much passion, emotion and fun.  And they have some of the best variety shows too, who share with us the culture of South Korea and their proud mindset. I love K-Pop and I'm glad that they have some recognition from other professional in the world. So, congratulation Lee Soo Man !

    Another typical sign that AKP writers never do their research or do fact-checking. *smh

    Isn't it weird that the award has been going on for 70 years and it is the FIRST time that a Korean has been awarded? I know there are a lot of countries in Asia but still...
