Lee Nak Yon becomes longest serving PM

이낙연, 28일자로 최장수 총리호남 '포스트 DJ'로 주목

Prime Minister Lee Nak Yon has served 881 days in office as of today, October 28th, becoming the longest-serving prime minister since South Korea adopted a direct presidential election system in 1987. He has eclipsed the former Prime Minister Kim Hwang Sik’ record of 880 days, who was born in the same Honam region as Lee.

Lee was born in Young Gwang City and spent years as the head of a branch office of Jeonam Province. On May 10th, 2017, he became the Prime Minister of South Korea after a call from President Moon Jae In.

Lee is well known for his scrupulous working style, as well as his sharp and logical speeches. He has also become known as a strong potential presidential candidate. With this fact, Honam people are considering him as ‘Post DJ’ and are excited to see his next journey.
