Additional information
General
MOVE FROM KOREA
Born prematurely to a chemically dependent mother in the Republic of Korea, he was adopted at a young age by a couple from the United States of America. His adoptive parents Peter and Orsa were told at the time that he may not develop into a productive adult, and they had to sign a medical form stating they understood. Although he could be a difficult baby, screaming often and squirming our of his parents' arms when they tried to hold him, they found his behaviour changed completely when he started gymnastics. "He needed a place to put that intensity. And that's what gymnastics provided," Peter said. (oklahoman.com, 05 Apr 2019)

NEW NAME
He was named Kyung-Tae by his birth mother, but his adoptive parents began calling him Yul when he arrived in the United States of America. Moldauer had very little hair when he was a baby, so they decided to name him after bald actor Yul Brynner. (oklahoman.com, 05 Apr 2019)

WORK ETHIC
He grew up on a farm in Oklahoma, United States of America. "I think it plays a huge role. It taught me how to be on time. It taught me how to work as a team. It taught me not to be lazy. When you're thinking about running a farm, it's not like you can just sleep in and skip feeding the animals or put off work because you don't want to do it. These animals depend on you, so it definitely taught me about responsibility. The older I got, I thought about it more and more. And it just made me realise how much the farm did for me and my perspectives of what work ethic is." (kunc.org, 10 Aug 2021)
