[용인=뉴시스] Reporter Kim Jong-taek = Former Lee Byeong-cheol, the founder of Samsung Group, and the 34th commemoration ceremony were held in Seonyeong next to Hoam Museum of Art in Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do on the morning of the 19th, and a vehicle carrying former Leeum Art Museum director Hong Ra-hee and the Samsung family was boarded.

According to the business world on the 19th, Samsung, CJ, Hansol and other pan-Samsung affiliates held a memorial service at Seonyeong near Hoam Art Museum in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, on the same day, the anniversary of the president’s anniversary.
The memorial service was held while visiting Seonyeong at different times for each group. These groups have been gathering separately since 2012, when former CJ Chairman Lee Maeng-hee and Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee fought over inheritance.
In Samsung, Samsung family members, including former director of Leeum Museum of Art, Hong Ra-hee, Hotel Shilla President Lee Boo-jin, Samsung Welfare Foundation Chairman Lee Seo-hyun, and son-in-law Kim Jae-yeol, president of the Samsung Economic Research Institute arrived in Seonyeong at 9:50 am on the same day, and stopped by for about an hour and 40 minutes to commemorate the deceased.
However, Vice Chairman Lee, who was on a business trip to North America, was inevitably unable to attend the memorial service that day. Vice Chairman Lee, who went on a business trip for the first time since his parole, is continuing his schedule locally, visiting Moderna and Verizon on the 16th and 17th, and meeting with the management.
In addition, the executives of Samsung’s major affiliates, who had attended the memorial service in previous years, did not accompany them in consideration of the COVID-19 situation, so the memorial service was held simply.
CJ Group Chairman Lee Jae-hyun, the eldest grandson of Chairman Lee Byung-cheol, and his wife Kim Hee-jae arrived in Seonyeong, Yongin, Gyeonggi-do around 9:30 am that day and stayed for about an hour to pay tribute.
Chairman Lee Jae-hyun and his party also ran into Samsung family members who visited Seonyeong about 20 minutes later. However, it was reported that there was no conversation.
Chairman Lee Jae-hyun plans to hold the 34th anniversary ceremony this evening at CJ Human Resources Center in Jung-gu, Seoul with only immediate family members in attendance. In the meantime, Chairman Lee has held a memorial service separately from the memorial service.
Shinsegae Group Chairman Lee Myung-hee, Vice Chairman Jeong Yong-jin, and General President Jeong Yoo-kyung did not attend the memorial service. Instead, some of the CEOs, including Shinsegae Department Store CEO Cha Jeong-ho and E-Mart CEO Kang Hee-seok, visited Seonyeong to pay tribute to the deceased.
An official from the business community said, “In the case of Vice Chairman Jae-yong Lee, he was inevitably unable to attend as he is concentrating on restoring the global network and discovering future food through his first visit to the United States in five years.” I know that the meaning of ‘business patriotism’ that he did was honored through a local business trip,” he said.
