In July 2016, South Korea agreed with US to install the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense
(THAAD) in its territory. This agreement rejectedby China which considered the instrument
would disrupt its sovereignty and is only US's way to instill its influence in East Asia Region.
China's resistance has led to boycotts of South Korean cultural industry cluster. The issue
surrounding THAAD was ended after South Korean Foreign Minister stated her position on
China's concern. South Korea issued a statement about Three NOs, namely: 1) no additional
THAAD deployment; 2) no participation in US‟s missile defense network; and 3) no
establishment of a trilateral military alliance with US and Japan. A day later, China issued a
statement regarding the normalization of relations with South Korea. This study aims to
determine the cause of South Korea agreed on Three NOs in normalizing relations with
China. This study uses theory of interdependencewith linkage strategy. The method used is
qualitative with explanatory type. As a result, Three NOs is a form of exchange of issues so
that boycotts can be stopped. This was motivated by South Korea's interdependence on its
cultural industry cluster and China. South Korea‟s strategy is said to be successful because it
provides a win-win solution for two countries.
