During South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s visit to China, on the situation in the Korean Peninsula, she quoted the saying from Confucianism "I used to take a man at his words and trust he would act accordingly. But now I listen to a man's words and note his actions."(始吾于人也,听其言而信其行。今吾于人也,听其言而观其行)
