New Japanese Spy Satellites to Target Korea

From the short article, it looks like they are spying on the entire peninsula, not just the North.

The Japanese government announced that it will launch additional data-collecting satellites aimed at watching the Korean peninsula in July. On May 1, the daily Yomiuri reported that the Japanese government will launch an optimal satellite in July and a radar satellite around next January or February.

The data-collecting satellite system consists of an optimal satellite and a radar satellite.
Just waiting on the Korean reaction...
