North Korea's test launch on Sunday flew higher and longer than previous tests, leading some experts to believe it could be the country's most advanced launch to date.
China has been infuriated by the USA deployment of an advanced Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) anti-missile system in South Korea, saying it was a threat to its security and would do nothing to ease tensions with Pyongyang.
Kim Do-hoon, 31, said that South Korea, while keeping the "door open for conversation" with the North, should also "show a stern attitude at some level". South Korean businesses have faced boycotts, especially the retail group Lotte which provided the land on which the missile shield is being constructed.
So said President Donald J. Trump a little over a week ago about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Greeting South Korea's presidential envoy Lee Hae-chan in Beijing, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said relations had made vast progress over the years.
Although Moon says he wants to return to a more realistic and open relationship with Pyongyang, he has to bear in mind the current United Nations sanctions, as well as the unpredictable response of Trump, who has been flexing his military muscles in Syria and Afghanistan.
North Korea was also under scrutiny by investigators looking for the source of a major cyberattack affecting more than 150 countries, but the European police agency said it was still too early to determine who caused the chaos.
Kim Sung-hee, a restaurant owner in Wudaokao - another area of Beijing popular with Korean residents - was also optimistic Moon could patch things up.
But analysts warned that Moon will have a hard path to weave, with THAAD already near fully operational. Although he has sometimes criticized the THAAD deployment, Moon has not said he will remove it.
"The newly-inaugurated government of Moon Jae In is standing in the extended line of the Gwangju democratisation movement", the liberal leader said in a speech during a televised memorial ceremony at the national cemetery in the provincial city.
Zhao said this was likely meant to force Moon's hand. "The system has already achieved initial operation capability", he said.
The missile launch was detected by new THAAD anti-missile system installed in South Korea, which is equipped radar that Raytheon claims can track a baseball hit out of a park from hundreds of miles away. "We don't have it done yet", Haley said.
"Stopping the deployment of THAAD is the bottom line of China", the newspaper said.
"China can be more flexible", Zhao said.
But he warned there had been no public signaling Beijing was ready to take such a step just yet.
One obvious obstacle is that North Korea is not a democracy.
"He [Moon] may seek opportunities to change the mood, but it's very unlikely for him to change under the current mood, unless there's a real genuine gesture coming from North Korea on nuclear front".
He said North Korea would stage more nuclear and missile tests in order to flawless nuclear bombs needed to deal with U.S.
"The United States is not past looking at third-country entities who are helping North Korea and putting sanctions against them".
He added that China hopes South Korea's new government will "correct the problems" and take measures as soon as possible.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday there was a "high possibility" of conflict with North Korea, which is pressing ahead with nuclear and missile programmes it says it needs to counter U.S. aggression.
