In South Korea, on the other hand, things are about to change a lot. Addressing the nation after taking the oath of office on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, South Korean President Moon Jae-in vowed to eventually move out of the Blue House, where every modern South Korean president has lived and worked since the end of World War II.
The deployment of THAAD was agreed past year by South Korea's previous administration after North Korea conducted a long-range rocket launch that put an object into space. "In order to create some diplomatic leverage, which is completely lacking at present, we need to improve inter-Korean relations", said Kim Jun-hyeong, a professor at Handong Global University. -South Korea relations in some circles, including those such as Josh Rogin of the Washington Post who called Moon "anti-American" (see Joshua Stanton's detailed assessment).
Moon asked Abe to cooperate in tackling issues arising from Japan's colonization of Korea from 1910 to 1945 so bilateral ties can develop further.
Moon also called for "dialogue along with sanctions and pressure" on the North to push Pyongyang to talks, Yoon said.
Reporting on Han's briefing, the state-run Korean Central News Agency, describing the attack on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), North Korea's official name, said: 'Heinous terrorists were recently detected in the DPRK.

Mr Moon told President Xi Jinping that North Korean provocations had to stop before the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (Thaad) system could be reconsidered. The South Korea-US alliance, which is the linchpin of South Korea's diplomacy, has come under scrutiny since the inauguration of President Donald Trump in connection with the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system and the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (KORUS FTA). The more alarmist tones ignore not only South Korea's own national interests, but the broader history of U.S. Then suddenly it arrived in the country in March, and was "operational" (at least in theory) by last month.
Moon has long said the next South Korean government should review the Thaad deployment and decide to allow it only after seeking China's understanding.
The conversation is a sign of willingness to fix relations between the two countries.
Whether the United States is deliberately manipulating events or not, Moon Jae-in is in a hard situation. "I will go to Beijing and Tokyo and, if the conditions are right, to Pyongyang as well" appear to indicate that he will personally oversee this process.
