Having lived in Seoul S.K and having dealings with Samsung in the past I can say that is 100% not true - Samsung is a conglomerate of privately held subdivisions forming a 'supercompany' or in Korean terms chaebel (cabal). The gov't does not own any of it. As a matter of fact recently the gov't fined Samsung for price fixing on their mobile handsets.
