President Moon Jae-in presented letters of appointment to two new justices who'll be serving on the Constitutional Court.
They are Lee Mi-sun and Moon Hyung-bae.
The South Korean leader went ahead with their appointments while abroad in Central Asia, despite strong protests from the opposition parties against Lee over suspicions about her husband's stock trading.
She's been denying any role in those activities but apologized to the public for the controversy.
Lee's husband reportedly sold all their shares, worth 3 million U.S. dollars.
