If you haven’t been keeping up with the news, South Korean President made international headlines last week shortly after he was sworn in as President. It wasn’t just the fact that he won the presidential elections, but also thanks to a certain someone beside him – and we’re not talking about the First Lady.
Rather, netizens went gaga over one of his bodyguards, Choi Young Jae, square-jawed, chiselled and altogether movie-star-like.
After pictures of him went viral, there was so much hype over him that the President’s campaign office has come out to say that the bodyguard is “unfortunately married” and has two daughters.
Young Jae, 36, has also spoken out in an interview with The Korea Times newspaper about his concerns over stealing the limelight from the President.
He is not the only bodyguard to find himself the centre of attention. The Sunday Times found five others who threaten to steal the spotlight from the stars they are hired to protect.
