This introductory chapter presents the national security concerns regarding the North Korea’s Korean People’s Army. The army remains one of the most serious threats to the peace and security of the neighboring countries since its Special Forces are deemed especially capable of wreaking havoc on South Korea’s defense. Hence, movements of tanks, airplanes, and ships are scrutinized for any clues to the military’s tactics, strategy, or objectives. Though these issues matter a great deal to outsiders who can potentially suffer disastrous consequences, there is a host of non-traditional security (NTS) issues that have more immediate and graver impacts on the people in North Korea. Supplies of cooking fuel and foodstuffs, for example, are more pressing and more immediate issues for most in the North than weapons of mass destruction.
