Samsung Electronics chairman Lee Kun-hee has regained consciousness for the first time since his heart attack on May 10th.
Doctors at Samsung Medical Center say Lee has been improving by the day and they expressed optimism the 72-year-old would soon regain other cognitive functions.
They added that his heart, lungs and other organs remain in "perfectly" normal shape.
Lee, who helped build Samsung Electronics into one of the world's biggest tech firms, has undergone a procedure to widen his blood vessels and had a stent implanted to maintain blood flow to his heart.
