I've got a Seoul & Tokyo transit next week to NY - what do you think - war risk?

I'm thinking about changing flights and another routing

Anything's possible I guess, but I'm not worried about a Korean conflict in the immediate future... and I hope I am right. I guess it depends where you are leaving from?

I am pretty sure you will be fine mate. N. Korea is pretty good at causing false alarm all the time and the possibility of an all out war is almost zero.

Nah, all will be fine. Its a mild annoyance of a young leader trying to assert himself. Enjoy the trip!

Unless you're planning to do a DMZ tour (they're probably shut down at the moment) I doubt you'll experience any inconveniences.

All of this is just a show and is mostly driven by their own domestic political concerns. Starting any war will inevitably lead to the quick death of Kim and north korea,

That's like asking what the lotto numbers are going to be.... If you're concerned then change your routing... There's probably only a very slim chance that something will happen while you are in transit...... ;-)

Kim #3 is either a strategic genius or a complete nutter. Thus anything or nothing could happen. "Koryo Group" tours are still running, but anything is possible. An ounce of prevention etc, I'd re-route.

Definitely the latter. But still, assuming he has a greater sense of self preservation than the caucus of the ALP, you're more likely to be killed by a tsunami in Tokyo than by North Korea.
