According to the information, the agent is named David Cho (David Cho, transliteration), and the information shows that he is a Korean American. President Trump also held the same position during his tenure. He participated in the security work during the two meetings between Trump and Kim Jong-un. In 2019, he was awarded a special medal by the US Department of Homeland Security for outstanding work performance.

Although there has been news that Biden is considering replacing some of the Secret Service members who have followed Trump, David Zhao, known as the”No. 2 Person” of Trump’s security team, was retained and became a security officer serving two consecutive presidents.

Many Korean netizens found a”bright spot” from this Korean-American agent. In Korean, David Zhao’s surname is pronounced very similar to Biden’s name”Joe”. Many Koreans laughed and said:”David Zhao, Joe Biden, both inside and outside the White House become their old Joe’s home. The site is now!”

“Bodyguards still have to use their own talents to rest assured!”, another South Korean netizen joked.
