You forgot that all the crack units and equipment were transferred to the Pacific to fight the US, basically leaving only raw recruits acting as a light infantry counter-insurgency force and not a force capable of fighting against armor. For that matter, the Kantogun only had around 600,000, with the rest being independent units (with at least 200,000 being in Korea).
