While the former human-rights lawyer has been making waves for his announcement to go for a simple living in the mountainside presidential palace and nominating a prime minister from a rural left wing province, the reason for the buzz on social media is another person in the photos.
To be precise, it’s Jae-in’s bodyguard, who women find handsome. Not much is known about the unidentified bodyguard, but that hasn’t stopped Korean netizens from dubbing him “Face Hegemony,” because his dashing good looks are “to lead the way for the new president.”
Twitterati has also joined in to fuel the buzz. “If I charge towards the South Korean president, will this bodyguard tackle me? Asking for a friend,” asked a girl on Twitter.
