What Happened To Early Members

Michael Breen
December 20, 1998

This is off the top of my head. I'd need to check my files and notebooks for complete accuracy. Important to note that most early members were married and middle-aged. 36 couples were the young guys. Only a few of them are prominent. Some died, several left, and many remain obscure outside Korea.


Won Pak Choi - she left her husband. Blessed in '98 with Buddha.

Shin Hee Eu - Cousin of Pres Eu Hyo-won. Left before blessing. Alcoholic.

In Ju Kim - was married before meeting Father in North Korea. Husband uninterested in Unification Church, but maybe they were blessed later

Myung Hee Kim - Father's intended second wife. Blessed with Confucius

Soon Chul Kim - wealthy woman, already married, nego husband broke her leg
