the only thing I know is that Lee Sooman saying "use Kpop to make China the Hollywood of Asia" is the most ridiculous not to mention sell out thing I've ever heard. Imagine wanting to use an export of your country in order to give influence and power to another country that isn't even your ally? If I didn't know any better, I would assume Lee Sooman is a one china spy who probably thinks the whole Asia should unite under China. One of the reasons Cpop has so much difficulties expanding outside (and even inside of China) is because China is so strict with regulations. They even banned male idols from wearing earrings on TV in fear it might "corrupt the youth". If it was up to China they would probably ban Lee Sooman's favorite child Taemin all together. Recently China even put a ban on Survival shows. Does Lee Sooman even realize that to be greedy for China money means accepting becoming a puppet and tool for China as well? The Hallyu would probably die and sizzle out under China control.
He should just be satisfied with whatever he is able to earn in China and not talk about his delusions out loud.
