The Korea Times reports that the dashing bodyguard’s photos had more than 30,000 views on Daum, a South Korean web portal. The publication also reached out to the president’s campaign office to find out about his relationship status.
Fawning fans of the former officer with Special Warfare Command are bound to be disappointed, however. He is married with two daughters.
