A doctored image has been shared in multiple social media posts that claim it shows former South Korean president Moon Jae-in posing with a book that calls him "the dog of North Korea". Moon was criticised during his tenure for his ultimately unsuccessful diplomatic attempts at engagement with Pyongyang, and this criticism has continued since he left office. The photo that was altered and falsely shared online in fact shows the ex-president holding up a book about South Korean history.
