President Moon Jae-in's Chief of Staff Noh Young-min and five senior presidential secretaries have offered to resign en masse, taking responsibility for administration management issues.

The officials who tendered their resignations on Friday are Noh and all five members of his team that covers state affairs, public affairs, public communication, personnel matters and civic society.

They do not include top aides under the National Security Office or the Policy Office.

A key Cheong Wa Dae official said their move was intended to take "overall responsibility for the recent situation."

The official refused to say whether the recent situation referred to public criticism over the Moon administration's "failed" real estate policy.

The official added that it was now up to President Moon whether to accept their resignation.
