SERAMBINEWS.COM – Not many North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s families have received public attention.
However, Kim Kyong-hee was one of them, because of his family’s tragic story.
Kim Kyong-hee is the daughter of the founder of North Korea, Kim Il-sung, and the sister of the second leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-il.
This means that Kim Kyong-hee is the aunt of the current leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.
This woman from the Kim family turns out to have a complicated, even tragic, life story.
How could she not, after losing her daughter who allegedly committed suicide in 2006, she also had to endure losing her husband.
Not an ordinary death that befell her husband, Jang Song-thaek, but a gruesome execution by her own nephew, Kim Jong-un.
The story of Jang Song-thaek’s execution is one of the most frequently discussed.
Looking at Kim Kyong-hee’s youth, it seems that Kim Il-sung’s daughter is a tough and unyielding woman.
This is illustrated by how he continued to ‘pursue’ Jang Song-thaek’s love even though his father prevented him.
