  Abstract: Since the establishment of diplomatic relations 20 years ago, China and ROK have achieved tremendous development in the political, economic and cultural relations, but have always had an asymmetric relationship in the military and security fields. There are some hindering factors and the most fundamental factors are the DPRK and the United States. Therefore, China and ROK need to firmly grasp the positive side and with a high degree of political wisdom to handle the negative side and the problems encountered between two countries. In 2013, the new South Korean government will draw on the lessons of Lee Myung-bak administration and adjust its foreign policy, placing more emphasis on the autonomy, diversity and balance of its foreign policy. This will help to promote the deepening and development of China-ROK strategic cooperative partnership.
