The Korean novelist Kim Jinmyung 김진명 has published a novel entitled THAAD in which he describes, as part of a murder mystery, an plot behind this pricey missile defense system the Washington is trying to sell to Seoul that will drag Korea into an unnecessary military confrontation with China.
Specifically, the novel describes the THAAD (Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense) missile system as a mechanism created by a United States to trigger a military conflict with China as a means of releasing itself from the debts to China that it can no long pay back. I have only glanced at the book in the bookstore, but I am quite curious as to its contents.
