How to distinguish a Korean woman and a Chinese woman from a Japanese woman?

Кореянки, Китаянки, Японки

Asians - the collective name for the indigenous population of Asia, as well as people from the Asian part of the Eurasian continent, regardless of racial, religious, national or linguistic affiliation.

The use of the term Asians varies by country. In a number of countries of the New World (Brazil, USA) the term Asians is the standard designation of Asians during the census. In Australia, a slightly more complex system is used to analyze the population census, in which Asia is divided into four regions - central and southern; southeast; northeastern; and the Middle East (including North Africa). In the CIS countries and Europe, in such cases, a specific nationality is usually used (Kirghiz, Chinese, Indians, etc.). Often the term "Asians" is mistakenly identified with the term "Mongoloids".

Many people think that Asians are all looking alike and find it difficult to distinguish between them. But Asians themselves easily distinguish people of their nationality from other peoples of Asia. How do they do it? Now find out!

Japanese women

Japanese (Jap. Nihondzin / Nippondzin, Nihon-Minzoku) - the people, the main (more than 98%) of the population of Japan. They speak Japanese.

The number - 130 million people, in Japan itself - 127 million. The Japanese also live in the USA (1.2 million people), mainly in the state of California and Hawaii, in Brazil (1.5 million people), in Canada (99 thousand people) and other countries of America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Most Japanese live in their own national state of Japan (Nippon, Nihon), located on the Japanese islands. The old name Japanese Empire “Give Nippon” literally means “Great Japan” or “Great Land of the Rising Sun”. The original name of the first ancient Japanese state - Yamato.

The faces of the Japanese are elongated oval, the nose is more pronounced, the eyes are large with a wide slit, the head of the Japanese is large.

Japanese women often use a pale white color for their face in make-up, and also use active bleaching agents.

The Chinese are a community of people united by a certain attribute. There are several interpretations of how to determine the involvement of a person to the Chinese.

  • These are people who have citizenship and live in the People’s Republic of China (mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau) or in the Republic of China (Taiwan). Regarding whether citizenship in China makes them “Chinese,” there are different opinions, because supporters of Taiwan independence do not believe that Taiwan is part of China. This concept of the Chinese nation has a legal basis in the PRC and the Republic of China.
  • The concept of the Chinese nation, adopted in the PRC and the Republic of China, includes all 56 groups residing in China and officially recognized by the government, such as the Mongols, Manchus, Tibetans, and other established ethnic groups living in the territory of modern PRC even from dynasty Qing (1644-1911). It also applies to Chinese overseas.
  • Ethnic representation: the Chinese call the main ethnic group that inhabits the PRC - Han.
  • In addition to nationality, the definition of “Sinism” includes: place of residence (geographical factors), origin (biological reasons), and pedigree (historical and pedigree factors).

The Chinese nation is polyethnic, there are 56 different ethnic groups living there, and some of them are not at all like the Chinese in our view.

For example, the Uighurs are more like the Tajiks. Therefore, it is simply impossible to derive some average type of Chinese phenotype.

Chinese faces are rounder than Japanese and Korean.

China is a huge multinational country, in contrast to Korea and Japan (which are more ethnically homogeneous), which makes it much more difficult to differentiate and generalize according to external features.

And it is also believed that Koreans can be distinguished by their small palms.

Koreans - the main population of the Korean Peninsula.

Self-name (ethnonym) of Koreans in Korean: Choson Saram (Cor.) In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Hanguk Saram (Cor.) In the Republic of Korea.

By anthropological type belong to the East Asian branch of the Mongoloid race. They speak Korean.

The main religions are Confucianism, Buddhism, Christianity, and shamanism, but most do not profess any religion. Previously Buddhism dominated, but in the XIV century it lost the status of the state religion. A large number of Koreans living in the DPRK hold atheistic views.

Korean faces tend to be flat, with high square cheekbones.

The eyelids of Koreans are often single than double (European style), but recently a high percentage of the Korean population has operated eyelids, which can be misleading as to their nationality.

The Japanese most often wear clothing brands and have a good taste. The Chinese do not always fall in the tone and beautiful combination of elements of clothing, they have their own, different from the Japanese, style.

For example, a Chinese woman can easily be met in the evening outside in her pajamas, Japanese women never do that. Chinese men allow themselves to walk in cheap sportswear. The Japanese, if they use sports style, they wear only world-famous, expensive things.

Koreans in the style of clothing are somewhere in the middle: ahead of the Chinese, but not yet caught up with the Japanese.

If you cannot distinguish a language at all, then you can determine the nationality by the manner of communication. The Chinese speak loudly, often spitting on the ground, even in public places. The Japanese language is monotonous and polite without accents and rises in tones, they speak muffledly, so in Japan it is always very quiet even in public places.
