Seoul, Nov 26 (SocialNews.XYZ) South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday appointed two deputy directors of the National Intelligence Service (NIS).

According to the presidential office, Moon appointed Park Sun-won, head of the NIS's planning and coordination office, as the first deputy director, while choosing Chun Se-young, senior official at the NIS's counter-espionage team, as the second deputy director, reports Yonhap News Agency.
