According to an analysis of the incident, the ICBM, dubbed HS-14, was launched into a high trajectory in order to test the flight of the maximum possible range without passing over Japan and other countries in the region.

In response to the launch, the US and South Korea held a joint military drill during which the armies launched missiles into the Sea of Japan. According to the US Army, the purpose of the exercise was to exhibit the strong cooperation between Washington and Seoul.
