South Korea's Defense Minister nominee Han Min-koo says he has no plans to adopt a U.S.-designed missile defense system. At his confirmation hearing Sunday, Han said South Korea currently deploys the US Patriot-3 system as a high-altitude defense shield over the peninsula. The nominee also vowed to install the country's indigenous missile defense system as soon as possible to counter any North Korean threats.

He said the defense ministry will push for early establishment of the Korea Air and Missile Defense system -- or KAMD -- and the so-called 'Kill Chain', a pre-emptive missile destruction system. The KAMD is aimed at countering low-flying missiles coming from the North and the 'Kill Chain' will detect and strike the regime's missile and nuclear facilities.

'Kill Chain' is lingo that originates inside of the US Space Command.
