The discussion includes descriptions of chain reactions from the cycle of security dilemmas that create the dynamics of an arms race that threatens the stability of the region's security. The security dilemma for North Korea is characterized by the polarity of forces, historical factors and social construction of amity and enmity. Through the literature study method, the theoretical concepts of security dilemmas serve as the main basis in understanding North Korea's nuclear weapons development. Therefore, this article concluded that the security dilemma in East Asia stems from the fear and threat due to the increasing power and military capability of other countries in the region.
