The nation’s top labor official and favorite son of Dorchester felt right at home Tuesday in Korea when he managed to sneak in a Dunkin’ run.

Dan Koh, chief of staff to US Labor Secretary Martin J. Walsh, the former Boston mayor who also represented Dorchester on Beacon Hill, on Tuesday tweeted photos of Walsh refueling at a Dunkin’ location in Korea.

“Korea has a way of making @SecMartyWalsh feel right at home,” Koh tweeted over a photo of a smiling Walsh pointing up at the Dunkin’ marquee.

Koh also tweeted out a second photo of Walsh holding up the java he’d purchased from the establishment.


“Success,” Koh wrote above the picture, later adding in a follow-up tweet, “And no joke — 6 Massachusetts people were in the Dunkin’ (that we know of) — all said hi.”

A Labor Department spokesperson said Thursday via email that Walsh traveled with “the U.S. delegation for the inauguration of Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol. The delegation was led by the Second Gentleman,” Douglas Emhoff.
