According to the airport’s Facebook page, the officer's name is Lee Minwei, 22, who has been working for the airport for seven months.

In the posting, Lee said having his photo going viral on social media was probably the most interesting experience he has had on the job.
"There are times when tourists ask me to take photos with them, but I never expected something like this to happen.

"It was really quite a shock. My friends and family tease me a lot," he said.

 

Lee also said he enjoyed working at the airport because he gets to learn about security measures.

At Press time, the posting on SGAG had received 21,000 Likes and 9,500 shares.
