As the past tense of hang, hung means did hang. Example:

  • He hung the picture on the wall.

The word hanged refers to a particular type of execution, and it is used to indicate that that execution was carried out. Example:

  • They hanged him at daybreak.

That has always confused me, too.

Thanx :D
