U.S. Ambassador to Korea Mark Lippert appears unfazed by a near-fatal attack posting photographs of himself walking with his family and dog through central Seoul on Wednesday.
Lippert returned to work on Wednesday, 14 days since he was attacked by Kim Ki-jong with a knife. On Wednesday, Lippert updated his Facebook page with photos taken while walking to work.
“Great to walk into work today w @LRobynDC & Se-joon & @GrigsbyBasset - great to be back!” he wrote. In the same post in Korean, he also wrote that he took a “fun” stroll to the U.S. embassy.
In the attack, which occurred on March 5, Lippert received cuts to his face and wrist at a seminar from Kim, an ultraleft activist wielding a 25-centimeter knife. Kim was taken into custody at the scene and now faces charges of attempted murder.
