The purpose of this paper is to analyze the characteristics of the mutual competition of strategies between the U.S. and North Korea currently underway to anticipate the future of North Korea-U.S. relations. In order to do so, this paper assesses the competition by examining the primacy strategy against each other adopted by both the U.S. and North Korea, the coalition and wedge strategies, and each side’s strategic position varied depending on the time. As a result, the study argues that while the likelihood of cooperation in the North Korea-U.S. relationship is low from a structural perspective, South Korea may actually face a situation that provides opportunities for a wide range of strategic choices. Moreover, this study concludes that a strategic environment that is disadvantageous to North Korea will form if the stalemate in North Korea-U.S. relations becomes protracted.
