South Korea's Tripwire

The 37,000 US troops in South Korea have been described as a trip wire that will trigger a US response to an invasion by North Korea. With the South raising objection to these troops the US has proposed removing them or moving them away from the border. The new South Korean administration seemed shocked by the suggestion and promptly rejected the idea, not from fear of losing a US response to an invasion from the North, but because they think it would make a preemptive strike by the US against the North more likely. Are these guys an ally of the US or are they just holding US troops as hostage to their agenda?
