Over a year on, still no U.S. ambassador to South Korea

With Mark Lippert's departure last January and the post remaining vacant, has diplomacy suffered?

Mark Lippert, the former U.S. ambassador to South Korea, left his post on January 20 last year.

Since then, Park Geun-hye was impeached, Moon Jae-in rose to power, and North Korea conducted over 20 missile launches as well as its sixth nuclear test.
