Gimme Back My Troops

South Korea is now asking for operational control of their own troops during wartime. Under the current system, in peacetime South Korea leads but in the event of war command reverts to an American. For more information, see this article.
Is this a good thing (South Korea showing greater interest in their own defense) or a bad idea (attempts to appease North Korea, as the South has tried often since the start of the Sunshine Policy)?
