Sangjang Han was a fictional North Korean military officer allied to Gustav Graves. A supporting antagonist portrayed by actor, Daryl Kwan, the character first appeared in the 2002 James Bond film, Die Another Day, and was later seen in its accompanying novelization penned by Raymond Benson.

Biography

Along with General Dong and General Li, Han is invited over to Graves' Ice Palace for a demonstration: a new satellite called Icarus that can provide sunlight to areas of the world which lack it in order to promote agricultural development in cold climate countries. However, it turns out that Icarus was actually designed as a weapon to detonate mines placed along the De-Militarized Zone between North and South Korea, as Graves intends to create a path carved through the De-militarized zone so that all of Korea would be reunited by force under North control. To that end, Graves provides a secret demonstration to Dong, Li and Han by using the satellite to trace down and kill James Bond with a giant laser, though Bond manages to escape from being killed.

Following Graves' return to North Korea, Han helpes him and the other generals form a coup against Graves' father General Moon by putting him under house arrest. Han and the generals then watch as Graves shows Moon of his plot. However, Moon is outraged by this and grabs Han's gun in an attempt to shot Graves, only for the latter to stun him and shot him down in anger, something which Han and the other generals didn't expect. Needless to say, Bond and his NSA partner Jinx breaks into the plane just as the former accidentally fires a bullet in one of the plane's windows, causing the cabin to lose pressure. Han, along with Vlad and the generals, are blown out of the plane and fell to their deaths.
