On the 21st, President Yoon Seok-yeol appointed Lee Kwan-seop, a full-time vice president of the Korea International Trade Association, as his chief secretary for policy planning, who will coordinate overall government policies and lead the implementation of national tasks. Former lawmaker Eun-hye Kim, who served as the spokesperson for President-elect Yoon, was appointed as the new presidential secretary for public relations. The 2nd presidential office reorganized the front line from the existing ‘2 heads-5 senior’ system to ‘2nd office-6 chief’.

President Kim Dae-gi, chief of staff, announced a plan to reorganize the organization and personnel of the presidential office in the briefing room of the presidential office in Yongsan on the same day. At a press conference on the 100th day of his inauguration on the 17th, President Yoon suggested the reorganization, saying, “We are looking at where the problem was from the presidential office.”

The new chief of policy planning is an orthodox bureaucrat who served as the first vice minister of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the president of Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power. In front of reporters after the announcement of the nomination, Chief Lee said, “I plan to do my best to become a government that can achieve national unity by upholding the fairness and common sense stipulated by the (Yun Seok-yeol administration) as its original banner.”

Kim’s new public relations chief was re-appointed after serving as the ‘mouth of Yun Seok-yeol’, such as Yoon Seok-yeol, the public affairs director of the presidential campaign, and the spokesman for the presidential takeover committee. Chief Kim said, “I will do my best to serve as a bridge to properly convey President Yun’s political philosophy.” Choi Young-beom, the former chief of public relations, has moved to his position as special adviser for external cooperation and will continue to assist President Yoon. Lim Jong-deuk, chief of staff at the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was appointed to replace Shin In-ho, former second deputy director of the National Security Office, who resigned due to health reasons.

With this, the presidential office has completed the system overhaul. Director Kim said, “This personnel is not a disciplinary person or anything like that.” He said, “It is a process of continuing to change so that it can be operated more efficiently and a little more.”
