A series of military tension growing in Korean Peninsula between the Republic of Korea, State of Japan, and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has attracted several major powers to get involved, and one of them being the United States of America. However, DPRK or North Korea, had developed nuclear and missile technology, causing massive fear towards states nearby. Attempts to disarm the North had been conducted several times, such as Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization (KEDO) and Six-Party Talks, but all of them seems to fail to fulfill their supposed goal. With the change of regime in the US post – Six-Party Talks, the US government decided to change their course of action in facing DPRK and their nuclear and missile program. With the Foreign Policy Strategy’s Typology concept, this article argues that the US uses confrontation strategy to face North Korea’s threats through economic sanction, monitoring, and military actions.
