Hyung Jin Moon is the youngest and seventh son of Unification Church founder Sun Myung Moon and Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon.

He was born in New York and received his BA from Harvard University and an MA from Harvard Divinity School. He studied and practiced Buddhism, adopting a shaved head and gray robes for several years before serving a term as the international president of the Family Federation for World Peace.

“I don’t know anything about business,” he says. “My brother helps us a lot. Finance and ministries are totally separate.” [1]

He is also highly skilled in martial arts, which he has practiced since he was young.

He and his wife, Yeon Ah Lee, live in Seoul, Korea, and have five children.[1]

North Korea

Rev. Hyung Jin Moon visited North Korea from December 9 to 16. After his return to Seoul, it was reported that Kim Jong-il had passed away on December 17 at the age of 69. The UPF Chairman returned to Pyongyang to pay his respects, laying a memorial wreath at the main mourning site in Kim Il-sung Square in front of a portrait of the late Kim Jong-il on December 24.

Succession Issue

Shortly after his father's death, Hyung Jin Moon asserted leadership over the entire Unification Movement. He denied succession rights to his mother (see Hak Ja Han), whom he condemned as being insufficiently united with church founder Sun Myung Moon.
