The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) fired two unidentified projectiles into the eastern waters on Monday, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).
North Korea suspended test launches of its short and medium-range missiles while it was negotiating with the United States, but resumed the tests after denuclearisation talks were cut short and ended prematurely without a deal in February 2019.
Experts said it may mean an advanced version of its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) or an SLBM. But officials in Seoul say the test was likely part of North Korean military drills that started last week.
North Korea likely tested one of its new road-mobile, solid-fuel missile systems or a developmental "super large" multiple rocket launcher it repeatedly demonstrated a year ago, said Kim Dong-yub, an analyst from Seoul's Institute for Far Eastern Studies.
On Feb. 13, Gen. Terrence O'Shaughnessy, commander of the US Northern Command and of North American Aerospace Defense Command, told members of the US Senate Armed Forces Committee that Kim Jong-un could be readying another missile test.

At the start of the year, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he was ending the suspension of nuclear and long-range missile tests, as talks between the U.S. and North Korea ground to a halt.

Late past year, leader Kim Jong Un suggested he may review a promise to suspend nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests.
North Korea has a long history of seeking to demonstrate its military capability to try to obtain concessions.
Historically, North Korea has tended to step up missile testing in the Spring, in response to springtime military exercises between South Korea and the United States that it has described as invasion rehearsals.
It would "look for ways to gain leverage and reclaim the initiative as we get closer to the USA presidential election", he added.
South Korea on Monday reported 476 new coronavirus cases, taking its tally to 4,212. Kim spent much of past year threatening to take a "new path" in nuclear talks with the U.S.in 2020, if Trump didn't make a more appealing offer.
Nuclear diplomacy between North Korea and the United States has largely stalled since the breakdown of a second summit between the North Korean leader and President Donald Trump in February 2019 in Vietnam.
