This is a good point.
I have the same problem with Black men, I just can't tell.
Can people help me and Stevie, we need to know the difference- what are the signs?
John ... dont change your mind too often :)
S. ... first time I met you, you did look Chinese ... second time at Sanlitun, you did a bit Korean, possibly because of the little black number you were wearing ... and based on your description, that night at Bar Blue, you might have looked more Japanese+Korean ... it does depend on the outfit as well :)
I can always recognize when a chick is korean. Always.
But ive tried several times where i got the number of an asian looking girl when i was too drunk to say where she was from. And then later talk on the phone , the way they talk is how i imagine the mongolian accent to be (I havent heard a mongolian speak chinese though, so i wouldnt know.) The korean chinese accent is so damn brutal and aggressive, which is out of place when you consider how graceful the girls appear to be.
Pay attention to their noses, they are the key :D
hohoho thats a lovely flatter nose, rokoloko :D
if you have a lovely flatter nose, then I will bet -from China-
but nose science is an art, we need more details, so better take a pic of your nose and upload here :P
@Rokoloko, puajjj !!! 我不喜欢那些鼻子, 小猪鼻子更好 :D
i feel like you dont believe my nasal theory, huh? :'(
it has nothing to do with nose.
a friend who was dating a korean once told me that he knows koreans cos they usually wear baseball caps and use make up alot and walk different.
i find that even harder to differentiate.
he said koreans and japanese are more into beauty looking than chinese but i dont think this is a really good sign to use to tell which is which cos even a chinese does make up.
i met a japanese chick in the hospital one day and i didnt even know she wasnt chinese until the nurses called her name and they talked and they asked about japan then i looked at her even harder but still saw no reasonable signs.
maybe the more u look the less u shall see.
I have the same problem with Black men, too.
What are the signs? maybe by looking their teeth?
nice suggestion DD.. :P
The most easy thing to spot is a japanese woman, she has to wear a school girls uniform, no?
But seriusly, in korea they use a different style of make up, i think ...
Its all about how used you get, as i came to china, i could not tell a womans age difference if she is 40 or 15 ... now its getting very easy ... You need to get your subconsciousness trained...
(continued) ... I heard that someone was also shooting a NCIS Congo ... but they mistaken AK47 as cameras, and none of the actors survived the first episode ...
。。。heehee ... too cold?
::xuedi:: ... no ... some Chinese are also into cosplay, I have seen images on internet where some guys wore Sailor Moon uniform ...
The only difference from Chinese and Japanese is ...well...Everything. There is no way a man can become more beautiful that the ladies here and I don't care how much his makeup costs.
tell us what are the differences
I went to a spa at the airport in seoul, i must say i was pretty impressed, all guys there, old or yound where quite squared build, i felt like a round ball ...
