The purpose of the dinner was to honor South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and First Lady Kim Keon Hee. As for Maddox, he studied at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea, so he has a connection to the region.

As Page Six reported, this was Maddox’s first public appearance since October 2022. In October, he and his siblings attended the London premiere of Eternals. 

Angelina looked chic in a cream-colored suit with flowing material. She added a pop of color, thanks to bright-red lipstick.
