North Korea doesn't have anywhere near enough nukes to even begin to approach causing an apocalypse. They could destroy a city or two and kill millions, but that's pretty much it. After the dust settled people would clean up and rebuild, in a hundred years all that would be left behind would be the memorials and museums.
The worst they could to to the mainland US is an EMP attack. It isn't clear how powerful an EMP it would be- certainly not nearly as apocalyptic as full destruction of our electrical grid, but it would really suck.
The Korean peninsula would be a different story. Seoul would possibly be nuked...certainly pounded to death by a shower of conventional and possibly biological/chemical warfare arms. Millions would die in Seoul and other major cities Kim could reach in his dying throes.
Japan might be affected, but unlikely...as would Guam or Hawaii.
Pyongyang could be nuked...though it's possible Trump wouldn't go that far and just take it with conventional force.
China would invade NK and try to occupy NK to keep the ROK from its doorstep.
Millions of Koreans would die of starvation afterward.
Kiss all of your cheap 4K TVs, samsung phones and tablets, etc. (not to mention most of the components car manufacturers need and many many other electronic toys) goodbye for years.
