President Park Geun-hye’s spokeswoman Kim Haeng resigned Tuesday, saying that she needs “rest” after working tirelessly for the past year.
“By quitting the spokesperson position for the one-year-old Park government, I plan to take some time off to get recharged,”
Kim said in a press statement. “I have been honored and happy to serve for President Park Geun-hye who works night and day with unwavering principles and trust.”
Kim’s offer has been reportedly accepted by Kim Ki-choon, presidential chief of staff.
Kim has been the only spokesperson for the president since Yoon Chang-jung, one of the two spokespersons appointed when Park took office in February, stepped down over allegations that he sexually assaulted an intern while accompanying the president on her trip to the United States in May.
