Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee marked one year in hospital on Sunday after a massive heart attack on May 10, 2014 put him in a coma.
Lee has been undergoing one or two hours of physiotherapy a day at Samsung Medical Center in southern Seoul but has not recovered his cognitive functions.
His response to external stimuli is allegedly improving as he is able to turn his head toward music or other sounds.
More than 9,600 get-well messages from staff were posted on Samsung's online bulletin board as of Sunday.
This is the first time a particular issue on the bulletin board has generated close to 10,000 messages.
