China has no moral right to blackmail S Korea over their intention to build up their self-defence in ...

China has every right to refuse to do business with whoever they want to send a message of disapproval. It is up to S.Korea to decide whether they prefer to continue to suck up to American hegemony or maintain good relations with their neighbours.

I don't think we can stop what is gonna happen in the history, what we can do is to affect it, such as slowing it down, or as you said, making it costly.

But where is pragmatism, that Chinese leaders often use in their vocabulary, in this? If it is going to happen anyway, why is it better to make it happen slowly?

In this case for example, I assume that those tourists had paid for this service in their ticket price, and by not using the service, it is costly for them too. Paying for something that you don't use.

Why does China simply not offer South Korea a missile defense system of its own, of Chinese design, to protect against DPRK missiles? Is it because China does not have such, or because China does not want to break ties with DPRK, or because China does not want to put it in hands of allies of US?

South Korea obviously needs a missile defense system, and as good as it can find. Do Chinese disagree with that?

Can anyone anywhere provide such system, which would protect against DPRK missiles without affecting China's interests? I think not.
