Who is Hak Ja Han?

Hak Ja Han or Hakja Han Moon is a Korean religious leader. She and her late husband Sun Myung Moon were the leaders of the Unification Church and are considered by church members to be the "True Parents" of mankind. They married in April 1960 and have 13 children and over 40 grandchildren, as well as a growing number of great-grandchildren. She is called the "True Mother" and regarded as the "perfect woman" by church members.

In 1992 she established the Unification Church affiliated-organization Women's Federation for World Peace, and traveled the world speaking on its behalf. Han's influence within the Unification Church has steadily increased. She is Moon's designated successor as the leader of the Unification Movement. In the American media Han is sometimes referred to as "Mrs. Moon"; although in Korean culture as well as other East Asian cultures a married woman keeps her original family name, with the children taking their father's.
