Born in South Korea to deeply religious parents, Nansook was hand-picked at age fifteen by the Reverend Moon to marry his son, Hyo Jin, the heir to Moon's spiritual and economic empire. Abruptly uprooted from her life in Korea, Nansook moved to the Moon family's opulent house not far from New York City and began her sophomore year in high school, speaking no English and concealing a marriage that could have brought charges of statutory rape. Her misery quickly became complete: her husband slept with prostitutes and drank, while his parents blamed Nansook for failing to reform their wayward son. Worse still was the hypocrisy she witnessed in the lives of the Moon family, who claimed to be sinless, but indulged in adultery, illicit drugs, and eventually physical violence. This is the harrowing tale of her years as an abused wife and privileged member of a religious cult, and her fight to create a life for herself and her children beyond the shadow of the Moons.

Trained at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, she was also a director, producer, and technician at her own studio, Cedar House Audio.
Hong was handpicked by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon as wife of his eldest son, but it was no honeymoon. Hyo Jin was a womanizer and drug addict whose lapses were blamed on Hong. Having finally escaped the Moons with her children, she's free to tell her story.
