Well, hello. On a Mother’s Day filled with far too many news stories of grief and despair, I found a little something to make a girl smile.

It’s the new South Korean president’s bodyguard.

This man’s chiseled visage has been making the rounds on social media, and this Mother’s Day has been better for it.


HuffPost reports that his name is Choi Young-jae. Choi is said to be a part of President Moon Jae-in’s “handsome brigade,” a term coined by Korean media for the “attractive public face of the new administration.”

Choi, 36, is reportedly married with children, but that just makes this real-life James Bond motherfuckin’ fine.
