    1. [+316, -9] Is he the CEO that never paid his artists?

    2. [+241, -8] After all that discord with his artists before his death...

    3. [+181, -7] The article doesn't mention a cause of death...

    4. [+28, -0] Possibly suicide

    5. [+24, -0] Seems like suicide

    6. [+14, -6] How old is he though...?

    7. [+12, -0] The company's been going through a lot of problems lately, maybe......

    8. [+11, -1] We need to know if he was killed or passed away to respond appropriately..

    9. [+7, -0] Can't really say anything positive about him after knowing that he made his groups suffer a lot and barely paid them

    10. [+2, -0] Rest in peace

    Whatever issue I have with TS, I'm not going to go so far as to say how so-n-so deserves it (like I'm already seeing on SNS).
    That sh*t is uncalled for.

    Frees them? Whatever happened with the CEO, they still have a contract with that company (unless, somehow, the death of a founder nulls anything).
    Now, I don't know if it was ALL of the higher-ups or just the CEO that was giving them problems, but I guess in time we will find out the answer.

    I'm just curious if this was a sudden death and if he was still active in the company or had stepped back. I've heard of people literally working themselves to death and I wouldn't want that to happen to him.

    Even though TS is crappy company, but I do feel for the people who just lost a beloved family member/friend.

    A bad father is still your father. Thanks TS for debuting great artists (Untouchable, Secret, B.A.P, Sonamoo & TRCNG). #RIP

    RIP. He was someone's son and possibly husband and father. I hope people who loved him find strength.
