    President Moon Jae-in will spend most of his brief summer break this week at a military base, Cheong Wa Dae said Sunday.

    "The president decided to take a break at a military facility because that involves less hassle than moving around with a massive security detail and he can be easily reached in the event of an emergency," a presidential spokesman said.

    President Moon Jae-in (left) and first lady Kim Jung-sook (center) have tea with a Buddhist monk in a temple in Andong, North Gyeongsang Province on Saturday.

    He did not say where Moon will go or how he alighted on the peculiar destination.

    Moon will not be meeting members of the public during the vacation, which some previous presidents have used as an opportunity to press the flesh.
