A photo has been shared repeatedly in South Korea alongside a claim it shows a mountain in South Korea covered with solar panels. The posts circulated online after South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced his country would scale up its solar and wind energy production facilities in a bid to become carbon neutral by 2050. The claim, however, is false. The photograph shows solar panels at a power station in China.
