In the Republic of Korea, the prime minister is appointed by the president and approved by the National Assembly. He (or she) is the second in command to the president, and has authority over the ministries of the State Council, with the exception of the Board of Audit and Inspection, the National Intelligence Service, and the Civil Service Commission, all of which report directly to the Blue House.
