If People Republic of China wants to play it smart then they will play the role of good cop in good cop/bad cop with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea for their own sake.
If DPRK becomes truly isolated then there is no telling what they will do.
The main reason DPRK doesn't starve is becuase of trade with PRC but if that stops then suddenly alot of refugees will start crossing the border which will become ugly.
Imagine on the 6 O'clock news we see Chinese border patrols shooting at hundreds of DPRK refugees trying to cross the yalu river.
As the old saying goes never corner your enemy.
