At 2 p.m., the inauguration ceremony for the 20th head of Gangdong-gu will be held at the Grand Hall of Gangdong-gu Office.

At the ceremony, employees joining the music club will dedicate a song in celebration for Lee's inauguration on the theme of “a hopeful future of Gangdong-gu,” and the present will be delivered wishing for the new head to listen attentively to residents and actively communicate with them.
After the ceremony, Lee will walk around all departments to closely check on working conditions and meet with employees.
The newly elected head of Gangdong-gu, Lee Soo-hee said, “I will devote myself to meet the expectations of Gangdong-gu residents who have called for a change. I will also make Gangdong-gu a proud place for residents by improving working conditions of public officials”.
