"On first day in office, South Korean president talks about going to North," read the headline of a Washington Post report.

President Moon's opponents have long marketed a public narrative that he was a "sympathizer" towards North Korea and would be "soft" on Pyongyang.

Against the backdrop, the Post's headline perfectly feeds into the conservative narrative and reinforces the preconceived notion about President Moon and his policy on North Korea.

The problem is that in his speech, Moon talked about visiting the United States first; Beijing and Tokyo second; and then, lastly North Korea.

The Post's headline characterized Moon's speech as if it was his manifesto to embrace North Korea instead.
