Yoon, deputy secretary at the office for public relations planning, is filling the post that has been vacant since Han Jung woo was tapped as director of the Chunchugwan press center of Cheong Wa Dae earlier this month.

It is part of a reshuffle in the lineup of Moon's public communication team following Ko Min jung's departure from the spokesperson job for the April 15 general elections. Yoo Song hwa also quit the position of Chunchugwan chief for the same reason.

Yoon studied political science and diplomacy at Chonnam National University in Gwangju and earned a master's degree in politics from the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul
