A man appears to have captured a video of a ballistic missile launched by North Korea into the East Sea while playing “jokgu” known as the foot volleyball early in the morning. The released video showcases the impressive capabilities of a Samsung Electronics mobile phone.

He posted a video on the internet community FMKorea on the 26th: “I was filming while playing foot volleyball for VAR purposes early in the morning. I was filming facing north. Considering the first breaking news (that North Korea launched a missile) came out at 5:35 a.m., I think I captured the North Korean missile. But why is that missile fluttering?”

The man’s filming equipment was a Galaxy S23 Ultra.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts remarkable camera performance. Its top model features a 200-megapixel image sensor with pixels measuring 0.6 micrometers (approximately 0.00002 inches) each and an f1.7 aperture module. Notably, it offers an excellent zoom function. The camera’s ability to zoom up to 100 times without shaking could seemingly capture a missile-like object flying from a distance.

The filming location was revealed to be Jangan-dong in Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul.

The author’s comment, “Why is that missile fluttering?” draws attention. This is because North Korea failed its missile test launch.

The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff announced through a text message sent to the Ministry of National Defense press corps that “North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile into the East Sea from the vicinity of Pyongyang at around 5:30 a.m. today (26th). The launch is presumed to have failed, and the South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities are conducting further analyses.”

A military source told Yonhap News, “The North Korea launched missile today flew about 250 kilometers.” “It appears to have failed in an attempt to test-launch a hypersonic missile.”

North Korea’s launch of a ballistic missile is the first in about a month since January 30.

Immediately after the missile launch, the U.S. government condemned North Korea’s ballistic missile launch and urged it to refrain from additional security-threatening acts.

The U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, which oversees U.S. Forces Korea, said, “We are aware of North Korea’s ballistic missile launch,” and “We are closely consulting with allies in the region, including ROK and Japan.”

The command issued a statement condemning the DPRK’s June 26 ballistic missile launch and urged North Korea to refrain from further illegal and security-threatening acts. It noted that while this event does not pose an immediate threat to U.S. personnel, territory, or allies, the situation continues to be closely monitored. Additionally, the command reaffirmed the United States’ ironclad commitments to the defense of the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan.
