"Before his appointment when he served as an outside director of Samsung Electronics Co., he assumed the company's forfeited shares and unethically gained profits worth $1,490,000," alleged Kwon. He went on to stress, "If Song fails to return that money, he will face a serious backlash from the public who will consider him to be unethical leader."
