VERY generally, Chinese and Malaysians tend to have a slightly darker skin tone, whilst Japanese and Koreans tend to be pale. I tend to guess like this, but in truth there are often times when I can't tell at all, especially if I am just judging by appearance and not speech.

I can't tell but you can rule out Japanese. Japanese people have their eyes, well the skin on each edge, curled upwards.

The skin tone doesn't count as many Japanese people have dark skin tone, Chinese have light skin tone, etc.

It's a Word doc with one picture on it. Seems safe; my scanners didn't pick up anything.

On first glance, those girls don't look too Chinese; the one on the left looks a bit Malaysian to me and the one on the right looks Korean-ish.

But, quite hard to judge from a single pic.

True, but like I said, it was VERY general. It just seems the case that most Far Eastern people I know fall into those skin tone categories. :p:

Not meaning to sound racist, but they all look the same to me. I don't know enough about the varieties to be able to distinguish.

Ach, I'll just leave it; they all look the same to me anyway.









Mmm... controversy.

I would say Chinese.

I can usually tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese, having had friends of both.

I find that I can differentiate Japanese, Chinese and Korean instinctively: this man, for instance, looks unmistakeably and quintessentially Korean to me; but I'd credit that distinction more to my experience than to any one feature, and hence it's difficult to rationalise. Nevertheless, I was able to ascertain the nationality of Lost's Korean couple long before narrative disclosure of that fact.
