The so-called Sunshine Policy launched by the liberal regime of South Korea brought about a significant transformation in its visions of North Korea. Through it, North Korea became an object of development. This was something different from the previous idea of North Korea as a politico-military target. However, to conservatives, North Korea remains within the politico-military realm as an object of territorial and ideological absorption. As a result, political conflicts in South Korea in the conception of North Korea - between a geo-economic object and an object of geo-political absorption - entail competitive appropriation of the discourse of China's colonisation of North Korea and affect the way North Korean territory is produced.
