Born as the eldest son of North Korean refugees who fled to the South during the Korean War, Moon Jae-in led a life full of twists and turns. He took part in the pro-democracy movement upon entering university in 1972 and then worked as a human rights lawyer. Moon also worked alongside late president Roh Moo-hyun as chief of staff and started his career politics in 2012 after gaining popularity with an autobiography published the year before. He unsuccessfully ran for president in late 2012, but managed to clinch victory in this year's race. President Moon faces a raft of challenges ahead, but one of the most important tasks will be instilling people with hope and confidence about the country's future.
