An image showing a fawning message written by former South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon is circulating in Facebook posts which claim the note is about North Korea's leader. But the claim is false: the message was actually written by Lee as a tribute to late Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh during an official visit to Vietnam in September 2018.
