"Something you've missed, Malgal or Mohe have Yemaek origin, language of Balhae is Yemaek language because malgal have Yemaek origin."
I don't think Sushen derived from Yemaek in earliest Chinese records like Shanghaiji the ancestor of
Mohe/Wuji the name Sushen is already there.There is also a document record to arrange" Sushen (Tungus) side by side with Yan , Hoa (Maek tribe of Yemaek) the northern territories of Zhou during Zhou dynasty. "蕭慎,燕豪 吾北土也"
Wuji the former name of Mohe described in Chinese 魏書.勿吉傳- "其人形似夫余,而言語不同夫余,句麗." The Wuji people looks like Fuyu people but their language spoken was different from Fuyu, Koguryo.
However I must say several times in history the Sushen system people absorbed some Yemaek elements as they always lived near Yemaek people. For example the Wuji took the Fuyu land and people when the last king of Fuyu fought with Koguryo. Also the Sianbi took a lot Fuyu people as slaves and asimilated some of them.
In Changbaishan area some form of cultural fusion happened between Yemaek and Sushen cultures.
In short Yemaek and Sushen were different in customs , languages and living regions.
Yemaek historical cultural relics are represented typically by Xituanshan culture 西團山遺 址discovered in Manchuria, whilst Sushen cultural relics are represented typically by 莺歌岭遗址.Early Fuyu culture is represented by 白金寶遺址.
In Wiki somebody says Sushen culture is represneted by Xituanshan which is actually wrong .Xituanshan is Yemaek culture represented.
As for the language of Bohai I would express my ideas later.
You should know the variation among Malgal (Mohe) tribes were huge, they're not genetically & culturally same people. There was many different Malgal tribes, some were eventually disappeared or some have merged with others like Jurchens in later period and Baekje and Koguryo. Koguryo claimed they're direct descendant of Yemaek while Baekje claimed as direct Yemaek. We still don't what was like during Yemaek expansion, I don't think Yemaek was entirely made of one tribal league, they were many tribal league and clans. Sushen, Buyo, Okjeo were annexed by Koguryo and they really didn't left any archeological evidence other than few lines of their names in both Chinese and Korean records. Malgal weren't just roamed Northern parts of Korea and Manchuria, but also entire Korean peninsula which explains why Baekje, Silla, Gaya have fought common malgal tribes.
Sianbi? are you referring to Xianbei? They're totally different root from Yemeak, only Khitan, Buyo, Okjeo, Malgal, Koguryo and Baekje were Yemaek origin. Xianbei fought long wars with Koguryo but they're relatively short live.
