Labor Secretary Marty Walsh finds a taste of home in Seoul

On Tuesday, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh traveled thousands of miles for South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol’s inauguration and still felt at home: He’d found a Dunkin’.

The former Boston mayor, known for his distinctive New England accent, couldn’t help but find the chain’s Seoul outpost in Massachusetts.

“Korea has a way of making @SecMartyWalsh feel at home,” his chief of staff Dan Koh tweeted a photo of the doughnut shop’s former secretary.

He went on to take a picture of Mr Walsh holding a cup of coffee.

“It worked,” Mr. Gao wrote. “Stop kidding – 6 Massachusetts folks are in Dunkin’ (we know) – all said hello.”

Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff led the US delegation to the inauguration.

In addition to Mr. Walsh, chargé d’affaires a.i. Christopher Del Corso in Korea; Democratic Representatives Ami Bera of California and Marilyn Strickland of Washington; Assistant Attorney General Todd Sunhwae Kim; and Amherst Academy Writer and Writer-in-Residence Min Jin Lee.
