Interesting is the love story between Kim Kyong-hui, younger sister of Kim Jong-il, and Chang Sung-taek (a.k.a.

Jang Song-thaek), who played a key role in the succession scheme, and how they succeeded in marrying in spite of Kim Il-sung’s objection. Despite their own experience, the couple opposed their daughter’s marriage to her boyfriend on the grounds his background was not good enough. Their daughter, Chang Gum-song, committed suicide in August 2006, while studying in Paris.The book provides an in-depth description of how Kim Jong-un, after consolidating his position as heir apparent, raided his eldest half-brother Kim Jong-nam’s secret villa, Uamgak, in Pyongyang and later attempted to assassinate him in another country.

The author defined the “attack at Uamgak,” which took place in April 2009, as a “war of brothers.” He explains the incident resulted from a power struggle between the two brothers, in which Kim Jong-un tried to eliminate the forces surrounding Kim Jong-nam.The book further discloses that a group of children of high-ranking officials in Pyongyang, named “Bonghwajo,” has emerged as a new power group supporting Kim Jong-un. The group is led by O Se-won, the son of O Kuk-ryol, a powerful general and vice chairman of the National Defense Commission- and Kang Tae-sung, the son of Vice Premier Kang Sok-chu, a veteran diplomat.

The author defines the group as the “core power” to lead the era of Kim Jong-un.About the AuthorLee Young-jong has worked as a journalist for the JoongAng Ilbo, a leading newspaper in Korea for more than 15 years and is an expert on North Korean affairs, having covered everything from the death of Kim Il Sung to inter-Korean summits to the recent North Korean provocations.
