The multiple ring buffer tool fails on spherical surface (WGS84)

Goal: to make a map showing how far North Korea's missiles could reach

Platforms used: ArcMap and Pro

Tools used: Buffer, Multiple Ring Buffer

Input: a polygon feature class, NK, referenced in wgs84

Distance: 1500, 6000, 9000, etc

Buffer unit: km

 

Issues: In Pro, the output from Multiple Ring Buffer is clearly just a planar circle (red) while the Buffer tool works perfectly (the blue layer). The problem remains even after I specify the Output Coordinate System in Environments. Both tools in ArcMap worked well using the same parameters.    

 

Please help. Many thanks!
