The U.S. Navy sub arrived in the port city of Busan, South Korea, on the same day that North Korea celebrates the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Army.
The attempted launch occurred a day after the regime of Kim Jong Un showed off a bevy of new missiles and launchers at a large-scale military parade on its most important holiday.
The projectile was launched at 6:42 a.m. Seoul time, from a site in the vicinity of Sinpo, South Hamgyong Province, a South Korean Defense Ministry official said.
The launch comes just ahead of a summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping this week.

South Korea's ousted President Park Geun-hye left the executive mansion Sunday, two days after the Constitutional Court voted to remove her from office.

The announcement comes just a day after North Korea test-fired four ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea.
