SEOUL — South Korean President Moon Jae-in came to office in 2017 on a pledge to clean up politics…
But now he’s facing a slew of allegations that could potentially threaten his own presidency.
Kim Kyung-soo, the public relations manager of Moon’s presidential campaign, was sentenced late last month to two and a half years in prison for using an influential blogger to manipulate public opinion on social media. Kim … allowed the blogger to use a computer program that created fake “likes” and post comments favorable to Moon on some 70,000 news stories.
SEOUL (AFP) – South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who promised to be a “feminist leader” during his election campaign, was under fire on Thursday for sending condolence flowers to the funeral of a convicted sex offender’s mother.
Mr Moon and dozens of senior politicians … sent bouquets for this week’s ceremony for Ahn Hee-jung’s mother.

SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s nominee for justice minister is under a prosecution enquiry and public outcry over a scandal that has reignited debate over class privilege.
Moon promised change. “Opportunities will be equal, processes will be fair, and results will be just,” he said.

Moon, a progressive, was swept into office in 2017 promising a reversal from the conglomerate-focused economic agenda of ousted President Park Geun-hye.
But his plan to raise the minimum wage 11 per cent disappointed both workers who didn’t think it was enough and businesses who said it stifled growth. More than three-quarters of the 30 experts surveyed predicted that employment growth would slow.
A close political ally of President Moon Jae-in of South Korea conspired with a team of online bloggers to illegally influence public opinion ahead of Mr. Moon’s election last year, a special counsel said Monday.

The Druking investigation followed another opinion-rigging scandal, in which South Korea’s government intelligence agency was accused of running a clandestine online operation to help the 2012 Park campaign win the election for Presidency.
