By now, the entire world has practically seen the news that North and South Korea have pledged to bring a formal end to the Korean War, with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un meeting to hold hands, plant trees, and promise a new era for the Korean people.
In light of all the eyes on Korea at the moment, a picture of a younger President Moon Jae-in and his wife, taken in the 1970s when he was just a law student, has recently been unearthed on Reddit.
Are you ready for this?
Wow. Is he not the Korean Clark Kent? Don’t you wish you had someone who looks at you the same way Moon’s now-wife, Kim Jung-sook, looks at him? Is this what love looks like?
But not only does President Moon Jae-in have superhero looks, he’s also got a bit of a superhero origin story. He’s the son of North Korean refugees who despised the communist regime and fled to South Korea for a better life. He also became a special forces soldier during his mandatory service in South Korea.
Then, in the 1970s, Moon was arrested and jailed during a pro-democracy protest against then-president and dictator Park Chung-hee, the father of former president Park Geun-hye (who now faces 30 years in jail). Moon passed the bar in jail and became a human rights lawyer before beginning his political career, eventually becoming President.
Moon Jae-in met his wife, Kim Jung-sook, in college when he was a student protester. Now, he’s at the fore front of ending the Korean War that began in the 1950s and has remained uneasy for 65 years.
In 2017, Moon Jae-in told CNN that one of his political role models was, of all people, Barack Obama.
