6:20 am
who is at the presidential residence in. so rob and there's a line expectation. this government is going to be very different to the more liberal one of one j in the, the previous 1. 1 of those areas we're likely to see differences in foreign policy . what are the big changes we might see? that's why that is going to be a big departure here in style from the administration. this integration here is just wrapped up held and spring sunshine. thousands of people attending here in the grounds of the national assembly listing to musical performances as witnessing the swearing in the by the new president, the 20th president of south korea and also listening to his inaugural address. but he is a conservative. we have just had 5 years of liberal administration here, which was bent to add that 5 years on trying to get better dialogue with north korea facilitated all of these summits with president trump with united states. well, there has going to be a change to that. the conservative you has said that he's going to take
