can you give an example?

If you're talking white & asian = eurasian.
If you're talking black and & asian = blasian (is the informal one).

If you're talking half Japanese, half Filipina...than that's what they are...half and half.

Generally speaking, if they are in Korea, people don't know they have the other half. They generally just assume they are all Korean or whatever.

If you get to know a person, they'll possibly mention it. But, generally speaking, if the person is 100% asian, and looks 100% asian, they'll just assume that all of your asian blood is from the asian country you are living in. There are some exceptions like chinese-filipina or chinese-malay...but usually they are mostly chinese and grew up in that other country.

The way she's dressing, I'll assume she's definitely living in Japan. She doesn't look look filipina at all, so if she's living in Japan, probably everyone will just assume she's 100% japanese.

There are many Koreans or CHinese living in Japan, but if they dress Japanese, speak Japanese, and everything else, no will really know. Even if others find out, it won't matter much, but it's not something most Japanese people think about talking about.

They are bi-racial, and their ethnicity is whatever country they live in/are a citizen of.

Ethnicity relates to cultural factors such as nationality, culture, ancestry, language and beliefs.

Race refers to a person's physical appearance, such as skin color, eye color, hair color, bone/jaw structure etc.
