1. [+414, -15] Omo… Lee Ho Yeon back in my generation was at the same level of Lee Soo Man of this generation… DSP may be on a decline lately but they used to be the only rival to SM back then. May he rest in peace.

2. [+276, -11] Thank you for producing FinKL ㅠ may you rest in peace..

3. [+242, -13] Rest in peace..

4. [+51, -1] DSP is an example of how badly leaving things to your family can turn out. After his stroke, his wife, who is the current CEO, appointed her daughter and younger brother as directors. A lot of the people who worked with Lee Ho Yeon quit after that… and DSP was just on a decline ever since.

5. [+39, -1] He really must’ve had an eye for talent, seeing as how he scouted out Eun Ji Won and Lee Hyori 20 years ago

6. [+31, -11] Lee Hyori is a celebrity who will go down in history in our industry and he’s the man who discovered her… that talent alone needs no more words.

7. [+21, -0] DSP really was the only rival to SM back then… through the 90s to the early 00s. YG wasn’t as big back then and.. I don’t think JYP even existed..?

9. [+14, -0] Hul… thank you for producing so many great artists for us. Please rest in peace.

10. [+13, -0] 64 is still such a young age… but he fought long and hard… may he rest in peace.
