As people may recall Hendrick Hamel mentions Chinese in Korea. After 
all they had Chinese landlords (who treated them badly) when they 
arrived in Seoul

As for the lifeguards of the king they consisted of Chinese and 
Japanese (fugitives?) and only Park Yon (Jan Janse Weltevree) as 
non-Asian and for 3 years Hamel and his mates were part of those life guards.

I don't know if there are any statistics about the numbers but one 
would expect that somewhere (hidden?) there are some statistics about 
their numbers
