Personal Information

Moon Jae-in is a South Korean politician and lawyer who served as the 12th president of South Korea between 2017 and 2022.

Before his presidency, he served as the senior secretary for civil affairs and chief of staff to President Roh Moo-hyun, a member of the 19th National Assembly, and the leader of the Democratic Party of Korea.

Born to North Korean refugees of House of Moon in Hamhung, Moon was raised in poverty in the southern port city of Busan. He excelled in school and studied law at Kyung Hee University.

He became a lawyer and was later involved in human rights activism with Roh Moo-hyun.

He was imprisoned for organizing a protest against the Yushin Constitution.

As a result of his work in human rights law, Moon was chosen to be the 2002 South Korean presidential election campaign manager for his longtime mentor Roh Moo-hyun in his successful bid.

He served in Roh’s administration in various official capacities.

In 2012, Moon was a candidate for the Democratic United Party in the 2012 South Korean presidential election, in which he lost narrowly to Park Geun-Hye: Park was aided in this election by domestic intelligence services.

In the 2017 South Korean presidential election, Moon was elected president as the DPK candidate following the impeachment of Park Geun-Hye and her subsequent removal.

As president, Moon has achieved international attention for his meetings with North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un at inter-Korean summits in April, May, and September 2018, making him the third South Korean president to meet their North Korean counterpart.

On June 30, 2019, he met with both Kim and Donald Trump, then-president of the United States, at the Korean Demilitarized Zone.

Moon favors the Sunshine Policy, a peaceful Korean reunification.

On economic policy, he favors reform of chaebols, has raised the minimum wage by more than 16 percent and lowered the maximum workweek from 68 to 52 hours.

During the COVID-19 pandemic in South Korea, Moon received praise domestically and internationally and helped his party win a historic victory in the 2020 South Korean legislative election.

Moon Jae-in was born in Geoje, South Korea, on 24 January 1953, shortly before the end of the Korean War, as the second child and oldest son among five children of father Moon Yong-Hyung and mother Kang Han-ok.

His parents were refugees from South Hamgyong Province, North Korea who fled their native city of Hungnam in the Hungnam evacuation during the Korean War.

His father worked as head of the agriculture department detaining food, especially rice of Korean colonial people as one of the main tasks at Heungnam, Hamju, South Hamgyong Province. His family eventually settled in Busan.

Since his father did not want to become a government employee as he had been in North Korea, his father started a business selling socks, which left his family in great debt.

His mother became the main earner by selling clothes received from relief organizations and delivering briquettes.

Moon’s family became attached to the Catholic Church when his mother went to the local cathedral to receive whole milk powder.

Moon once said in an interview that he did not know how to ride a bike since his family was too poor to afford a bike or monthly school tuition.

Moon entered Kyungnam High School and reportedly placed at the top of his class.

He was accepted to study law at Kyung Hee University with a full scholarship.

At university, he met his future wife, Kim Jung-sook.

After organizing a student protest against the Yushin Constitution, he was arrested, convicted, imprisoned, and expelled from the university.

Later, he was conscripted into the military and assigned to the South Korean special forces, where he participated in ‘Operation Paul Bunyan’ during the ax murder incident in Panmunjom.

After his honorable discharge, the death of his father influenced him to decide to take the bar exam.

He stayed at the Buddhist temple of Daeheungsa to study for the exam and passed the first of two rounds in 1979.

In 1980, he returned to the university to complete the remaining year of his studies.

Later that year, he passed the second round and was admitted to the Judicial Research and Training Institute.

He graduated from the Institute as the second in his class but was not admitted as a judge or state prosecutor due to his history of student activism against the Yushin dictatorship under Park Chung-hee.

Moon chose to go into private practice instead.

Despite his earlier indifference, he began to get involved in politics.

He published a memoir called Moon Jae-in: The Destiny which became a bestseller.

His popularity had been rising steadily against the likely opponent in the presidential race, Park Geun-Hye.

In a February 2012 poll, Moon rivaled Park in popularity. Moon managed to capitalize on the conservatives’ decline in popularity amid a series of corruption scandals.

As one pundit said, ‘Moon had managed to portray himself as a moderate and rational leader who has the backing of the younger generation’.

Party: Democratic Party of Korea

Presidential term: 10 May 2017 – 09 May 2022
