Korean Armour.

Look virtually identical to Qing Armour especially the first photo.

This is Mongol, late Ming (different from early Ming), and Choson armor.  All three have Mongol influence, although one can argue that Mongol armor was influenced by Chinese and Korean armor.  Very representative of early brigandine armor.  Period: circa late 1400s to mid 1600s.

Well, even they are very similar to each other , the pictures shown in the above are definitely Korean Armour. The boot they put on are Korean style, Chinese has a thick white sole on the boot (although some Korean also have one). The architecture in the background  also shows Korean element.

Yes, very similar to the armor Admiral Yi wore.  Very Choson indeed.  The helmet is similiar to a Choson helmet captured during the Imjin war that is on display in a museum.   Although I would contend that the armor is not similiar to Qing armor, as noticiable differences, especially helmet and color.  The armor, however, is similiar to late Ming armor.

btw, not all Chinese and Korean boots have a white sole.
