A man with the name Moon from a band named Astro? If you thought I would pass on this story, you clearly don’t know very much about me.
With a name like Moon Bin, I thought to first check his Lunar age. A “Lunar year” is 12 Lunar phases, or New Moons, which is about 11 days shorter than a solar year, and is the root of the Islamic calendar. The traditional Korean, or Dangun calendar, is Lunisolar.
Bin was born on a date with numerology of 26, which was also the 26th day of the year:
25+26 = 51
While the surname Moon is certainly common in Korea by American standards, it’s actually one of the lesser common surnames in Korea, with it belonging to under 1% of the total population.
Another famous person there with the surname Moon is former South Korean president Moon Jae-in, who held office until May of last year.
The words Moon, Lunar, and Cycle all sum to 21 in Reduction (Pythagorean) gematria.
Moonbin died on a date with Reduced numerology of 21:
The date also had numerology of 19, and was the 109th day of the year. This is the gematria of his group Astro. MLB’s Houston Astros won their 19th game on this date as well.
Perhaps the most significant Lunar Cycle is the 19-year Metonic cycle. The word for Kill has Hebrew gematria of 19 and 244.
The word Moon has Ordinal gematria of 57. The 57th Prime number is 269, and the first number that sums to 269 in either Ordinal or Reverse is 312.
He was also part of a duo called Moonbin & Sanha with fellow singer Yoon San-ha, whose birthday is 3/21, which has the same three digits as 312. Like Bin, Sanha is also a member of Astro.
Moonbin has Ordinal gematria of 82. This is the first number to have gematria of 666 in any of the most basic ciphers, as “Eighty-two” = 666 (Reverse Sumerian). 666 is heavily-connected to the Moon and Solar eclipses.
Sanha was born on the 81st day of a leap year. The 81st Prime number is 4/19, and Moonbin died on 4/19, during Brown Lunation # 1240.
Late night April 19th into April 20th, a Hybrid eclipse occurred, which welcomed Lunation # 1241.

Notice that this week’s special eclipse belonged to Saros Series # 129. This is the Ordinal value of Ninety-nine.
This is noteworthy because in the Reverse alphabetic order, The Moon equals 99. Every couple of years, there are Thirteen full moons in a solar year.
This brings us back to Moonbin’s sister, Moon Sua. Notice how she was born on 9/9/99:
April 19th was 1,283 days after the death of another K-Pop star, Sulli.
This is of course the year 2023. The K-Pop group Astro debuted on 2/23 in 2016, when Moonbin was still 216 months old.
