Jay. I am reading it a little differently.
He hopes that it is just another day in South Korea .... but now being President .... he has worries .... and who wouldn't.

He got elected in part on a "Sunshine Policy 2.0",

In order to keep his supporters expectations realistic, he will be restating the obvious, every chance he gets, along with hints towards the Trumpian alternative.

If he doesn't regularly do this, he will lose support.
