It is tech news if you start babbling away about the possible yield of that missile and the amount of damage it might inflict, and whether it will actually launch at all let alone reach its target, and what countermeasures the US, SK, Japan etc have in place and whether they will be effective against this type of missile, and so on and so forth. Lots of fun to be had, all of it very much tech-related. Not even counting all the fodder for jokes and off-topic remarks.

Good times... We had fond memories of IJ and SW in those days, because at the time we only had three SW movies and three IJ movies to remember. Then George Lucas was abducted by the aliens from the fourth IJ movie (or maybe by a horde of Jar Jar Binks clones), and they lobotomized him. Next thing we know: SW prequel trilogy and IJ4.
