Differences between Chinese, Japanese and Korean

Can you tell the difference between Chinese, Japanese and Korean?

If you think you can, try the following tests:

What's your first round score for Exam #1: Faces ?

Of course, you should do better the second time around if you memorise the answers . . .

SIGHHH ! ! ! Do you need to be enticed by prizes before you will do anything ?

Well, some people from another thread are pretty confident that they are able to tell the differences . . .

Who can these days. I'm 3rd generation Malaysian, my grandfolks are from Guangzhou and I can't tell the difference between Chinese to Japanese and Korean.

German, Swedish and Dutch. I can't tell them apart either.

when you're a chinese, japanese or korean...90% of the time you can tell the difference. the remaining 10% you can't because the half-breeds are the ones very hard to distinguish

Its not the face, subconsciously you take in to account.

Behavior,
Make up,
Hairstyle,
Clothing,
Mannerism,

I spent a year in Japan, when I returned to the UK, everyone thought I looked very Japanese, I bought the local clothes, had the local hair cuts.

Now that I have been in Singapore for a while everyone thinks I look Singaporean.

My elderly father was horrified when I collected him at the airport, in flip flops, shorts and T-shirt, My mother could not believe women go to the office in slippers!!

Took me a while to get over the fact you can be out eating in a decent city centre restaurant and can see your bare toes.

Its a combination of all the factors that make up the perception of the country of origin.

Its is only a perception an Asian friend studied in the States and came back with ther face painted like a cheer leader :roll: , she looked so American.

Bit like you can tell an Eastern European a mile off in London
