snipperrabbit!!, I like your ideas, although I probably would just say "Turtle" instead of "P'anokseon". I feel Firaxis isn't really big on technical distinctions and would prefer a known thing if it exists and is reflective of the Civ. Hwarang could be interesting (name could work and ability could work). By any logic whatsoever, it's overpowered in your version. It has the Chinese special ability and a bunch of other stuff too. I think the other stuff is reasonable overall (even if a tad undramatic).
