Youtuber and former ROK Navy UTD/SEAL Dex appeared on comedian Lee Kyung Kyu’s YouTube channel and shared the story of meeting former president Moon Jae In.

To this, Dex shared the backstory of how it all happened.

For us, we call the president ‘VIP,’ so when we saw him, things got crazy. People were trying to get a photo with him or shake his hand. I happened to be the last to meet him, and I thought I should make some impact so a photo would be taken and my parents could see me. I thought I should take advantage of this opportunity.

As he grabbed the president’s hand to touch his cheek, he suddenly saw the bodyguard try to pull something out.

I asked him if he could pat my cheek and grabbed his hand. But then I saw the bodyguard beside him try to pull a gun out from under his clothes. But the president smiled and touched my cheek.

It was then he realized he could’ve been in a very dangerous situation.

I saw the expression on the bodyguard’s face behind the president, and I was so surprised. He was really in a position to pull out a gun. When I looked at the bodyguard, his body came forward.

But ultimately it was all worth it in the end as he was able to capture this special moment!
