    Im confused about why the units are korean and not mongolian. Why are they?
    What is it that makes a complete stranger dive into an icy river to save a solid gold baby? Maybe we'll never know.

    Because the Mongols launched their invasion of Japan from Korea, and the Mongols were not numerous enough to have native armies in each of their conquered territories. Since China and Korea were conquered nations at the time, they would use recruited soldiers from those nations to bolster their army.
