Yonhap denies 'photoshopping' of Park, Obama ahead of summit
SEOUL, May 9 (Yonhap) -- A Yonhap story slugged "Park-NK provocation," released on May 8 (Seoul time), carried an erroneous caption for an attached photo. The caption should have read, "This composite file photo shows South Korean President Park Geun-hye (L) and U.S. President Barack Obama."

   The photo simply placed the two leaders side-by-side so a file photo of the summit meeting could be attached to the story before actual photos of the White House event were made available for use. The photo was simply a combination of two separate images of the leaders.

Some foreign online media outlets have raised suspicions regarding the authenticity of the image, but the photo was not an attempt to "photoshop" two clearly different images.
