Accordion to people who've escaped the country the North Korean military routinely raides villages for food and cooking fuel.
If the government can't even properly feed the people that they are dependent upon for their autocratic rule than there's no way they'd be able to actually sustain a war á la Korean War of the 1950s. At this point, despite some nasty rhetoric, China is solidly a member of the international economy and the Communist party is fully aware that war on the Korean peninsula/an attack on the United STates would be disastrous for both the Chinese economy and their positions of power. If North Korea were to attack the west coast of the United States the Chinese government would step in and (probably) occupy the country to prevent war with South Korea (more economically and politically advantageous than North Korea at this point).
Don't worry about the DPRK. The supermajority of the people live in medieval conditions and the military uses 60+ year old equipment.
