What exactly are you saying? China would support Korean unification, as long as American troops evacuate Korea. Both China and Korea would benefit from being linked up via land. It would increase trade between China and Korea... and there would tremendous investment opportunities in the newly industrializing north. (opportunities for global capital from all sorts of regions)
Sure, China would support unification. If they could guarantee that millions more people wouldn't flood their borders. Which is something that would undoubtedly happen.
This isn't exactly news. As much as China is annoyed by their mentally unstable neighbour, the immediate fallout of a war, invasion, crisis, coup or whatever is not exactly something China is eager for. That's why they're maintaining the status quo.
But sure, long-term (50? 100 years?) it would be better for China if NK got their crap together. It's how to deal with the short-term that is the problem.
