Hyon Yong-chol

General Hyon Yong-chol (born May 10, 1971), also romanised as Hyon Yong Chol, is a senior North Korean military officer. He was promoted to the rank of 4-star general (대장), alongside Kim Jong-un, Kim Kyong-hui, Kim Kyong-ok, Choe Ryong-hae, and Choe Pu-il in September 2010. Yong-chol was listed as number 77 on the national funeral committee in the wake of Kim Jong-il's demise in December 2011. He was named as a member of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea on 28 September 2010. In February 2012, Yong-chol received the Order of Kim Jong Il.

Yong-chol was promoted to the rank of Vice Marshal (차수) of the KPA in July 2012, 2 days after Chief of the General Staff Ri Yong-ho was relieved of his duties. It was initially unclear if Yong-chol would replace Ri as Chief of the General Staff; but this was confirmed a few days later. He was also identified as vice-chairman of the WPK Central Military Commission on July 26, 2012.

Sources reported that Yong-chol has been demoted to General by November 2012.
