Hyo-Jin Moon (December 3, 1962 – March 17, 2008) was the eldest son of 14 children of Sun Myung Moon and Hakja Han Moon. For ten years he was head of the Unification Church-owned Manhattan Center Studios recording facility in New York City.[1] He served as worldwide president of the student branch of Unificationism, World CARP (Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles).[2]


First marriage

At age 19 Hyo Jin was married to 15-year-old Nansook Hong, chosen for him by his father, Sun Myung Moon. During their fourteen years of marriage, they had 5 children.[3] In her autobiography, In the Shadow of the Moons, Nan Sook reports that her husband had long-term problems with substance abuse,[3][4] violent behavior,[3][5] and extra-marital sex.[3][6]

Spousal abuse and divorce

Throughout their 14 years of marriage there was a continuous problem with the issues mentioned above, including cocaine addiction and physical abuse, according to Hong.[7] Hong reports that on several occasions (and for more than one child) he punched her repeatedly while threatening to kill the baby she was carrying in her womb; describing this in an interview she relates that Hyo Jin Moon would say "It's a thrill to be violent."[8] Many former members have corroborated her assertions.[9] Fearing for her safety and that of her children,[10] Hong fled the Moon estate in Irvington, New York, in 1995 with her children, and filed for divorce.[3]
