As receiving congratulations from His Eminence Nicholas Cardinal Cheong Jinsuk, and two other auxiliary bishops of Seoul, the Most Rev. Andrew Yeom Soo-jeong and the Most Rev. Basil Cho Kyu-man, Bishop Kim said, "I humble myself before the grave duty bestowed on me. I will strive to promote a good Catholic community with the predecessor, the Most Rev. John Chang-yik, the presbyterium and the faithful of Chunchon."

     When visiting the diocesan office of Chunchon to have time to meet Bishop Chang and the presbyterium of Chunchon on February 1, 2010, he pledged himself to a self-sacrificing pastor for his local church.
