However, the Korean media reported that Cha In Pyo and his two siblings all declined the inheritance rights to the conglomerate. Cha Su Woong had sold all of his shares to a joint venture before his passing.

The reason for not accepting the inheritance, Cha In Pyo believes that neither he nor his siblings have any knowledge about this field, so handing over the conglomerate to anyone would be meaningless. Meanwhile, within the conglomerate, some people have dedicated their entire lives to its development and have a thorough understanding of the work.
