The disgraced former managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, arrived in Seoul on Wednesday afternoon.
Strauss-Kahn is to attend an international conference marking the 20th anniversary of the Institute for Global Economics on Thursday.
He is expected to deliver a speech on the global economy and global governance.
Strauss-Kahn, once considered a strong favorite for the French presidency, resigned from his IMF post in 2011 after he was arrested and charged with the sexual assault of a housekeeper in a New York hotel.
The prosecution was dropped because the alleged victim’s story did not add up.
