The presidential office has denied the possibility of a Cabinet reshuffle early next month, saying that the move won't come as fast as some media outlets have predicted.  

Presidential spokesperson Kim Eui-kyeom on Monday addressed recent media speculations that a reshuffle will be announced shortly after the Lunar New Year holidays beginning early February.  

Noting that speculations are causing confusion among government ministries, the spokesman asked the media to help a new tradition settle in for ministers to stay fully committed to their posts until their successor's inauguration.
