Lee Soo Man, the founder of South Korea’s one of the biggest management agencies, reportedly has a new feature documentary currently underway at Amazon’s Prime Video. According to Deadline, filmmaker Ting Poo is helming Lee Soo Man: The King of K-Pop, a “documentary chronicling the enthralling life of a bold visionary whose work put his country on the map, sparked a global movement, and continues to define an era. A futurist and visionary on the scale of Steve Jobs, Lee is more than a music impresario. He is a world-builder and a technologist whose original creation has taken over global entertainment, one K-Pop band at a time.”
