His birthday was recorded as January 6 by the traditional lunar calendar (February 25, 1920, according to the Gregorian Calendar). Korea was then under Japanese rule. He is one of thirteen children and the second son to Kyung-gye Kim, a homemaker, and Kyung-yoo Moon, a scholar. During his childhood, Moon was heavily affected by his elder brother Yong-Su Moon's deep faith. Moon and his family went into bankruptcy when his grandfather's elder brother, Rev. Yunguk Moon, gave most of the family money to an independence movement from Japan.
