그는 북한 정부의 선도적 인 인물이었다. 2013 년에 실행된다. | He was a leading figure in the government of North Korea. Executed in 2013.





장성택(張成澤, 1946년 1월 22일 ~ 2013년 12월 12일)은 조선민주주의인민공화국의 정치인이자, 김정일의 매제(김경희의 남편)이며 김정은의 고모부이다. 조선로동당 중앙정치국 위원이며 국방위원회 부위원장이자, 최고인민회의 제12기 대의원이었으나, 2013년 12월 3일 모든 직위에서 배제되고 출당 조치를 당했으며, 같은달 12일 특별군사재판 후 사형이 집행되어 사망하였다. 사형 방식에 대해서는 정확히 알려지지 않았으나, 기관총같은 화기를 이용하였을 가능성과 교수형을 집행하였을 가능성 등이 있다. 대한민국 정보당국은 총살형 뒤 시신을 불태운 것으로 추정하고 있다.


일제 강점기 당시 항일활동을 하던 아버지의 덕으로 김일성종합대학 정치경제학과로 진학했으며, 대학 재학 중 김경희와 만나 결혼하였다. 1970년 대학 졸업 이후 조선로동당 중앙당의 간부로 활동하였고, 김정일의 측근으로 활동하였다. 장성택의 친형인 장성우와 장성길인민군 장성이다. 자녀로는 딸인 장금송이 있었으나 2006년에 결혼 반대를 비관하며 프랑스에서 자살한 것으로 알려졌다.







Jang Sung-taek (January or February 1946 – 12 December 2013), also romanized as Chang Sŏng-t'aek, was a leading figure in the government of North Korea. He was married to Kim Kyong-hui, the only sister of former North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-il and the aunt of Kim Jong-un, the supreme leader of North Korea.


Although the precise extent of Jang Sung-taek's power and position cannot be confirmed, in 2008 South Korean government officials and academic North Korea experts suggested that he may have taken on de facto leadership over North Korea when Kim Jong-il's health began declining and when Kim subsequently died. Jang was vice-chairman of the National Defence Commission, a position considered second only to that of the Supreme Leader. He is believed to have been promoted to four-star general around the time of Kim Jong-il's death as his first appearance in uniform was while visiting Kim lying in state. Jang was considered a "key policy adviser" to Kim Jong-un.


In December 2013, Jang was abruptly accused of being a counter-revolutionary and was stripped of all his posts and expelled from the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK). His photos were retroactively removed from official media and his image digitally removed from photos with other Korean leaders. On 13 December, North Korea state media announced he had been executed.
