Can you tell the difference between chinese, japanese and korean people just by looking at them?

it is a question that has intrigued me a lot seeing as people have always come up to me and asked whether i am chinese and japanese, for which i respond with chinese. for me, i don't think that people who ask that question are ignorant or stupid, i think its good because for most of you, you can't... show more it is a question that has intrigued me a lot seeing as people have always come up to me and asked whether i am chinese and japanese, for which i respond with chinese. for me, i don't think that people who ask that question are ignorant or stupid, i think its good because for most of you, you can't distinguish the difference just by appearance. i for one was born in london & i am of chinese descent. its hard isn't it by defining people this way by looks. to me i can tell that japanese people don't look like chinese by their eyes, their's are different, although koreans look far more chinese to me, until they speak korean which is where the similarity ends. what do you think about each culture? can you tell the difference? are you intrigued or fascinated in some way by them. seeing as i for one love learning and discovering other people's cultures and nationalities. i would love to read what your views are on this. by the way, no racist filth or else i will report your arses to yahoo!
