There were a lot of cultural exchanges over the centuries between the two countries.  Korea was a part of Japan for a long time, so I am sure that the Japanese influence could be seen in things like military award design.

Basically after the Russo-Japanese war Korea became a Japanese puppet state and was finally annexed in 1910. Hence the Orders, which were made in Japan, have a striking similarity to the Japanese issues
