South Korea President’s Hot Bodyguard is Making the Internet Thirsty AF

Moon Jae-in was elected South Korea’s new President on Tuesday but all eyes are on one of his handsome bodyguards.

The election comes after Park Geun-hye, the country’s first ever female president, was impeached over a corruption scandal.

Moon defeated Liberty Korea Party leader Hong Jun-pyo and the People’s Party’s Awn Cheol-soo, but many netizens are distracted by his bodyguard’s dashing good looks.

According to, his name is Choi Kyung-ho, but Korea Times identified him as 36-year-old Choi Young-jae.

Choi was an officer with Korea’s Special Warfare Command, Moon’s campaign office said, adding on May 8 that “He is ‘unfortunately’ married and has two daughters.”

But that did not stop online users from being thirsty AF, with some pointing out that he looked like an actor filming a movie, Allkpop reported.

We volunteer as tribute.

Our body is ready to be protected.

His peek-a-boo game is straight FIRE.

Cool guys don’t look at cameras.

Unless they’re trying to show off their good side.

Several fanfics will probably be written about Choi.

If the criteria to join the South Korean president’s security detail is to look this fine, then some people are all for it.

While Choi is smoldering hot, he isn’t the only one getting all the attention in South Korea.

It turns out that the whole darn Cabinet is quite good-looking.

Commenting about the “handsome brigade” a netizen said, “I surrender to this ‘reign of beauty’ with no objections.

One person commented, “He will be the first handsome president of Korea.
