Have our Tom standing by at...
"We have our Kim Hyun-bin standing by at the Ministry of National Defense in Seoul."
standing by at... modifes our Kim Hyun bin like people standing there are... or standing by at... is an object complement like had her cutting my hair?
I was wondering if adjective phrases can modify names like Tom, Jack?
What do you experts think? Thank you so much as usual in advance.
Yes, "standing by at the Ministry of National Defense in Seoul" is telling us what Kim Hyun-bin is doing. An object complement can be a phrase. Here's another example:
The movie stars Johnny Depp in the role of Captain Jack Sparrow.
The movie is the subject.
Stars is the verb
Johnny Depp is the object.
In the role of Captain Jack Sparrow is the object complement.
