I voted for the first option. Nobody's bending over backward to give Sum Dum Guy -- oops, Kim Young'un -- any concessions or favors at all. He's backed himself into a corner. If he orders any kind of attack on SK forces, the new President of South Korea has given her field commanders permission to respond in kind without waiting for word from Seoul. If that happens, the NKs will escalate because they have to.
After that, all bets are off.
