For DPRK, I am suspecting that if NK really collapsed sometimes in the future, I doubt that Chinese will take over N. Korea and use Hong Kong model. They will grant New N. Korea more and more stuff and take control on Foreign Affairs/Defense/Legal System and relieve all power to N. Koreans.

Please be material on international issues, China and Japan are two key powers in East Asia. South Korea cannot be a vital role in East Asia regardless how strong S. Korea economy is.. Of course, I believe that Chinese have a goodwill to S. Korea to have a better and stronger economy.
You sound like a ultra nationalist Chinese troll. Dream on.

I don't think I stated anywhere in my post that South Korea's claims were valid. I just stated that it is likely that a unified Korea would begin pressing claims since they would have the power to do so. I also said that in terms of realpolitik, China's best option is to keep Korea divided. Nowhere did I criticize China for pursuing that route. Having a strong neighbor (that is possibly nuclear with a million man army) next door that is hostile regardless of whether it is ruled by the Kim family is not a good idea which is why it is a good for China to have a Korea that is divided. North Korea is not and has never been a reliable ally of China and the relationship is mostly one way which is why a unified Korea under the Kim family would not have warm relations with China. If you want Korea to unify, that's fine by me but don't come complaining when the North Korean refugees take over Yanbian and start making demands the way the Russian minority is doing in Donetsk, Crimea, and Luhansk.

I think Red China is foolish for keeping North Korea like the way it is. Kim could easily point the nuke at the PRC. beijing is much closer than washington. Plus, Koreans look down on the Chinese. relations have not always been well between the 2 countries. it may bite them in the ass. That's karma.

You can think one more step: Why Chinese do not worry about you are worrying right now.

Korea has never been a threat to China any time in thousands years of history. Not even a single time.
It s smaller than an average province of China, even if you combine north and south.

Korea never had a nuke. You only need one.
