An officer with Korea’s Special Warfare Command, he is tasked to guard the current president after the country's first female president Park Geun-hye was impeached due to a corruption scandal.
Unfortunately, this oppa is already married and has two children.
While he effortlessly stole everyone's attention, it turns out that the next leaders of the country are equally good-looking.
Choi is part of what netizens tagged as "handsome brigade," which includes the head of state himself Jae-in, chief-of-staff Im Jong-seok, and presidential senior secretary for civil affairs Cho Kuk.
