Indeed, keeping it all in the family.
How does one say you are toast in North Korean?
The younger Kim Jon needs to have his ass kicked and then hung.

North Korean state news agency KCNA has announced that Jang Song-thaek, the uncle of leader Kim Jong-un and formerly one of his closest advisors, has been executed.
The story appears on the English-language KCNA website under the title “Traitor Jang Song Thaek Executed,” though no further details of the execution are contained in the body of the story.
“Despicable human scum Jang, who was worse than a dog, perpetrated thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the party and the leader for him,” the KCNA report says at one point.
Rumors that Jang had been purged from the North Korean government began to circulate in the South Korean press earlier this month, and were later confirmed by North Korea. State media has accused him of mismanaging the economy, corruption, womanizing and drug-taking, and he has been airbrushed out of pictures and video footage, Reuters reports.
Jang was the husband of Kim’s aunt, Kim Kyong-hui. Before his fall from grace, he was widely considered one of the most powerful people in North Korea, helping the young Kim, still in his 20s, to rule after the death of his father Kim Jong-il in 2011.
