SEOUL, Aug. 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered his country's military Tuesday to display its capabilities that can overwhelm North Korea should the communist state decide to attack, the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

The order came hours after Pyongyang launched what appeared to be intermediate range ballistic missiles that flew over Japan, according to Cheong Wa Dae officials.

The show of overwhelming force involved the dropping of eight Mark 84 or MK84 multipurpose bombs by four F15K fighter jets at a shooting range near the inter-Korean border in Taebaek, Yoon Young-chan, Moon's chief press secretary, told reporters.
