    The youngest of three children, he has two older sisters.

    His current surname “Hahn” was the Germanized version of his original family name, Han.

    Joe Hahn is a second-generation Korean. His father was a miner, and his mother was a nurse, both in Germany. They were both born in South Korea, but they first emigrated to Germany before living in the United States.
