Yet, this probably hasn't escaped South Korea's notice! Are they counting only on the U.S. to defend against that? Are they figuring on the U.S. providing a nuclear defense for them in that case?

There could be a LOT of scorched earth on both sides of the 38th parallel. And we don't have Dugout Doug to send, any more.
You just put your finger on why Gangnam (south of the Han River) is the most affluent part of Seoul. It's the farthest from the DMZ.
