KCNA: "The south Korean authorities may find the wedding ceremony turning into a mourning ceremony if they fail to hold tight control of media and of their own tongue."
KCNA: "If the present situation turns into the freezing state which is not wished for by anyone, the blame will entirely rest with those who made fun of and went against the active proposal and efforts made by the DPRK for the improvement of the north-south ties."
KCNA: "They should know that they may mess up the great event of the nation should they get on the nerves of the dialogue partner and wag their tongue and writing brush at will."
KCNA: "Tongue may bring calamity and miswritten pen may become a sword beheading oneself."
KCNA: "Because of the conservative media keen on reeling off all sorts of vituperation against the fellow countrymen, the 'peace Olympics' so much advertised by the south Korean authorities may turn into 'confrontation Olympics'."
KCNA: "They even admonished the authorities to be vigilant against 'the north's trick to impair the south Korea-U.S. alliance'."
KCNA: "The conservative media of south Korea obsessed by the conception of confrontation with the fellow countrymen are misleading the public opinion, while describing the DPRK's proposal and sincere efforts for north-south dialogue as 'double-dealing tactics'."

KCNA: "The south Korean authorities are not concerned forthe nation but they are a group of pro-U.S. traitors who are only keen on currying favor with their mastereven at the sacrifice of the Winter Olympics and the valuable sprout of the improvement of the north-south ties."
KCNA: "The south Korean chief executive expressed gratitude to Trump and pledged to lead the north-south talks to the DPRK-U.S. talks for the 'north's nuclear dismantlement'. His brownnosing attitude is something beyond imagination."
KCNA: "The present south Korean chief executive's attitude casts doubt as to his intent to improve the north-south ties and build confidence. To claim to hold talks which can only be successful is little short of hoping for a meal without cooking it."
KCNA: "The new year press briefing of the south Korean chief executive was to curry favor with his discontent master. It is by no means accidental that media at home and abroad deride the south Korean chief executive's attitude."
KCNA: "He openly disclosed his dirty intentionHis coarse invectives made us think how can he be so ruthless and ignorant of his dialogue partner even though his position is so poor as to read the face of his master."
KCNA: "He said that he would not be so weak as to only pursue dialogue with the north. Saying the start of the dialogue does not mean the solution to 'north's nuclear issue', he vowed to keep step with the international community in applying sanctions."
KCNA: "He even made such rubbish that the north was led to dialogue to open up the chapter for 'the north's denuclearization', not for the improvement of the south-north relations."
KCNA: "At the new year press briefingthe south Korean chief executive said that the beginning of the south-north dialogue can be described as the effect made by the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure and President Trump played a big role."
