The three carriers will be likely together in the drills around Monday, according to a South Korean military official, who didn't want to be named, citing office rules.
The joint chiefs of staff of South Korea said in a statement in Seoul that its naval vessels will participate in the drills.
In addition to the USS Ronald Reagan, the USS Nimitz and the USS Theodore Roosevelt, the U.S. Navy also will mobilize 11 Aegis ships.
During the joint drill, the two countries will practice air operation and artillery strikes, as well as aircraft carrier escorts to test their ability to jointly carry out operations.
The drill is an effort to show North Korea the country's military strength and capability to respond as the nuclear threat continues to loom in Pyongyang, reported the news outlet.
Pyongyang detonated its sixth and most powerful nuclear bomb in September after months of ballistic missile tests that riled Washington and its allies Japan and South Korea.
An unnamed official with the South Korean military was quoted as saying three USA aircraft carriers will stage joint drills with the South Korean military from Saturday to Tuesday in the Korea theater of operations (KTO) off the country's east coast.
