China is the only reason why NK even exists and they have grown to hate it.


Honestly, China annexing NK seems more plausible than SK doing the same, to me: they've got a much larger population, so can absorb those sorts of numbers more easily, and there's nobody likely to stop them.

It's only plausible if you lack knowledge regarding East Asia and believe that all Asians are the same.

North and South Korea have a common traditional culture and language. Historically, they were a single country until forcibly divided by the Allies after Japan's defeat in WWII. Also, they both want reunification with each other, which is important.

China and North Korea don't have much in common apart from both being seen as authoritarian "commies" and being Asian. North Korea absolutely hates its current dependent status on China, which is a result of North Korea's diplomatic isolation. A Chinese annexation of North Korea would result in universal condemnation and the end of China-South Korea ties.

The major players in Korea all know that Korea's division was not meant to be and was a result of Japanese colonization and the Cold War. The US officially supports Korean reunification, albeit on paper.
