‘Moon Tae-jong’s son’ Jae-rin, “I want to wear a Taegeuk mark”

Do you remember Moon Tae-jong, a ‘mixed-race naturalized player’ who made a name for himself as a KBL special shooter and also won a gold medal in the Asian Games as a national team member?

Reporter Lee Jeong-chan introduces his son Jae-rin, who inherited his father’s talent and dreams of becoming a Taegeuk mark for generations.


Moon Tae-jong, who debuted in KBL in the 2010 mixed-race player special draft, made a name for himself as a ‘special shooter’ for 9 seasons in Korea.

After going through ‘special naturalization’, he also played for the national team, especially as a member of the gold medal in the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.

After Moon Tae-jong retired four years ago, he ‘grew up storm’ under his father’s guidance in the United States.

The 6-foot-8 forward is rated as one of the nation’s top 10 prospects among his high school sophomores, with outstanding athleticism and shooting skills that match his father’s.
