New Amazon Prime Video Documentary About SM’s Founder is on the Way. There will soon be an Amazon Prime Original documentary about Lee Soo Man, the man who founded SM Entertainment. In an exclusive story, Deadline revealed that the production company.
This Machine is getting ready to make a feature documentary about SM’s founder titled “Lee Soo Man: The King of K-Pop.” The year 1972 marked the beginning of Lee Soo Man’s career as a vocalist. He launched his own production firm in 1989; by 1995, he had renamed it SM Entertainment.
Over the years, SM Entertainment has given us such acts as H.O.T., S.E.S., Shinhwa, TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, SHINee, f(x), EXO, Red Velvet, NCT, aespa, and many more. In the documentary, Lee Soo Man is portrayed as a futurist and visionary similar to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and his work is said to have “taken over global entertainment.”
Ting Poo, who edited the Oscar-winning film “Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405” and co-directed the upcoming documentary “Val” about actor Val Kilmer, will be in charge of the production.
When asked about the documentary, Brianna Oh, head of documentary features at Amazon Studio, said, “We are happy to rejoin with Ting Poo to chronicle Lee Soo Man’s dynamic career and indisputable influence on K-Pop and the music industry at large.”
