While South Korea’s former president was no stranger to attention, the country’s new leader is already making a name for himself — or at least making a name for his handsome bodyguard.
The fact that Moon Jae In just took office has been largely overshadowed by the fact that his bodyguard is handsome. Like, you-just-walked-into-a-lightpost handsome.
The first photos of him were posted to Korean web portal Daum, and immediately devoured by an insatiable Internet.
He’s been identified as Choi Young Jae, a 36-year-old Special Warfare Command officer.
Twitter user @Elena_Yip reposted the photos to her profile and quickly racked up more than 30,000 retweets.

“If I charge towards the South Korean president, will this bodyguard tackle me?”
