in reply to eugene jeong's dissertation about koreans being a superior asian race.
1st of all, koreans (north and south) are all from china. it may be sad to you, but it is quite true and any korean history source will tell you so. in addition, it is obvious from the fact that the classic korean characters are chinese.
2nd of all, i have not heard anyone say that koreans are the most beautiful, and about 98% of my friends are korean. i also live in an asian-dominated community which is predominantly korean. my closest friends (guys and girls alike) do think that koreans are good looking. i agree, but no one denies that almost 90% of the girls have had, at least, 1 cosmetic surgery procedure perfromed on them. i know more than a handful of my friends have already had some stuff done, and we're not even out of college yet.

it's nice to have pride for your own race, but it begins to get sad when you diss others, as you seem to with the chinese. it is wrong to base your opinions on stereotypes and places like the people who are found in chinatown or something. hong kong and taiwan are far more advanced than korea and america, and walk beside japan. also, the main cities of china are the some of the most affluent in the world (even after curreny changes).
be careful what you say...

It's interesting how this site is asking which are the best looking group of asians? And how some are pro Korean or Chinese. But how would you judge someone who is mixed KOREAN AND CHINESE? Just a question. From what I've been told I'm a good looking kid.

So Fake,
Lets leave the Korean people alone. We get the idea. I think all this bashing is enough. Not all Korean people are bad. It would be better if all Asians get along. The Europeans did, why can't we? I don't think our differences are that great. What Asians need to do is to teach their kids how to love and embrace other cultures and people. That way they can grow up with pride and without the hate. The happiest people I'd seen are usually brought up that way.

I think everyone have the right to be proud of one's heritage but to feel superior over others in the name of your own ethnicity is basically evil. These same feelings lead to the Holocaust and horrible events in history. Please learn from the past and wise up. Life is too short for these stupid arguments over who conquered who in the past or who have the best celebrities (how insecure are you?).

To be fair, I have noticed that alot of these racially devisive arguments are started by people claiming to be Korean (I doubt they are real Koreans from S. Korea) and then other asians (especially Chinese) would retaliate and post equally stupid statements. Alot of the first postings always state that Koreans look, act and dress the best. God, how shallow is this. LIFE IS NOT A BEAUTY PAGAENT. When you get older, I hope you realize your stupidity. To the Chinese poeple here, stop responding to these postings or you are just as mentally retarded. There is no need to get defensive. I dont think 1 billion+ of you or your 4000 yr old culture is in any immediate danger of extinction.

I think a lot of you posters will be less racist and bigoted if you got out more. To tell you the truth, I used to be a little closed minded until I started travelling and visiting different countries in asia. I've visited Seoul, Shanghai, Manila, Bombay and bunch other places and it really opened my eyes to the beauty and diversity of asia. I know alot of you are young and cant afford to, but there are alot of cheap travel packages on the internet if you look hard enough.

Why are the Coreans the only ones with self-confidence and pride? its cuz you other Asian races in the U.S have been conditioned. Common chinese and japanese came over for menial labor, and did a poor job in creating positive stereotypes that other Asian races would later have to endure. Youíve had decades and decades of the white man keeping you down and telling you what a second class citizen you all are, and believing it. On the other hand, only two boatloads of Corean university students fled to Hawaii when the japs invaded, to keep the Corean identity alive. Coreans didnít come over here again until after the end of the Korean war. That's why we still have a confident, macho, albeit arrogant attititude towards everything. Historically most Coreans in the states are made up of first or second generation upper class citizens, while other Asians in the U.S are made up several generations of the non-warrior peasant/farmer class. If you take all these things into account, youíll begin to understand why we think so differently.

Of course its hard for Americans to tell European Americans apart, they're all mixed. But if you go to Europe I can easily tell different Europeans apart. And they bicker even more. Especially during football games.

So fake
You have one low self esteem.
Care to explain?

Confucius was Korean? I got a bridge I want to sell you, interested?

You're just mad because you couldn't get any of that hot Korean gal.

Chinese guy
"Iím surprised that the Chinese is considered to have the most attractive physical traits."

Even the Chinese are surprised! Most people who are are on this website are Chinese, that should explain it.
Oh I have never seen an attractive Japanese in person, really!

You're a bunch of morons. Can't you see this "Eugene Jeong" is an impersonation? It's a fact Confucius was chinese and EVERYONE in this world knows it, and no Korean goes around claiming that we have mongolian heritage. Can't you see that someone's getting a kick by stiring things on this forum? Probably none of YOU can see that cuz you're all too fixated on your hatred towards us.

"I have to say that I think Asian nationalities are much more distinct from one another than European nationalities are. I can easily identify a person as a Korean, Thai, etc. but it is almost impossible for me to conjecture on the national origin of a European person. Well, Irish people are weird, Greek people (and also people from southern Italy, many of whom have close links to Greece) are often quite different-looking, and Russians are sort of unique (they often look part Mongolian)..."

Uh, no offense, but you just contradicted yourself and proved yourself wrong. But you're 19, still in the middle of your college education. Hopefully, when you graduate, you can make a more coherent argument. Also, you have to include Middle Easterners as part of that same "race." They are classified as Caucasian, and just recently, a massive computer probe of DNA (more extensive because it tests more the whole of people's DNA instead of just individual genetic markers) proves that Middle Easterners and Europeans are one population. ( <--shows a nice color coded breakdown of the human population, about as accurate as technology would allow right now...

So, to compare Thai and Korean would be the equivalent of comparing an Italian, or even a Lebanese, with a Dutch person. You are making an assessment using double standards.

I have seen some Thai people (the ones in north near Tibet) who look no different from Koreans and Japanese with the "Classical Mongoloid" type features.
