Ah I dunno Syo -
you look pretty Korean to me - (but then I'm Korean. O.o)
I'm very good at telling nationalities, too.
But then this one time this Korean guy came up to me (before the surgery) and asked "Are you Mandarin?"
And I'm just all, "..."
The rest of the conversation:
Boy: Are you Cantonese, then?
Boy: Wait, what are you?
...actually, I went up to McDonalds and the guy up front says "Ni hao" to me. And I'm just -.-
I'm okay if someone asks me if I'm Chinese or not, but when people jump to assumptions --
someone asked once how much Chinese I speak, without even asking what I was.
For some reason a lot people tend to think my mom is Japanese, and sometimes my dad Chinese.
My parents and many of my (albeit Korean) friends think I look very Korean --
The high school I used to go to was almost 90% Asian (despite the school's claim it's 40%).
So I've met all sorts of Asians. Most of the time I got it right. The times I didn't, they were half-Asians who looked so white nobody could tell...
