It's a consideration that must have been taken into account when the North broadcast the results of the failed launch over national television, something they didn't do the last time a launch like this went south.

Barbara Demick and Jung-yoon Choi at the LA Times report the failed launch directly contradicts the North's claim that it's a "strong and prosperous" and could directly undermine its new young leader Kim Jong Un.
From the LA Times:
The failure could be a domestic and international public relations disaster and undermine the legitimacy of North Korea's new leader, Kim Jong Un, who is still in his 20s. He took over in December after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il.
An administration official who requested anonymity while discussing sensitive topics predicted that the failure "will have ramifications internally." The official credited tough economic sanctions with restricting North Korea's access to advanced electronics and other crucial equipment.
