Since China-U.S. détente in 1971, South Korea relieved its policy towards China and tried to improve its relationship with China. However, during the Cold War, China did not give positive responses, ignoring or avoiding responding the stimulations given by South Korea. This article explains under which conditions China responded to South Korea's stimulations and when it remained silence, by applying the correlation between stimulations and responses which is cited in the Weber’s Law to the relationships between South Korea and China during the Cold War. It is concluded that when the influence of the events was great and its influence on national interests was great, the Chinese government took responses. The Chinese government restrained from responding to the events, the influence of which could be controlled and did not have great influence on national interests, such as the fighter asylum. On the other hand, the Chinese government took responses carefully and positively, towards important events, such as the emergency landing of civilian plane, using special plane at Seoul Asian Game and the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and South Korea.
