Is one Korean, Japanese or Chinese and the other one not? While many Americans would not consider that an interacial situation those cultures would.

I would say multicutural. The race is Asian. Chinese is not a race, it is a person from the country of China. Just like if I an American, married a Irish woman who is also white, that would not be interacial. It could be considered multicultural.

'Interracial' seems to imply black, white, asian.

However, they would be international or multinational.

Interesting that the photo is of a Korean man and a Southeast Asian woman. Due to the huge shortage of women in Korea, plus the higher education/status of Korean women in Korea, more and more middle-aged Koreans are looking to southeast asian for wives.

Huh? How can you tell her nationality right away? Aren't filipinas mostly dark skinned?
She looks either Malaysian or Singaporean to me.

Race is a very tricky subject. Biologists will tell you that there is often greater genetic diversity within a "race" than there is between different "races."

Race, imo, is a man made construct. If someone asked me what race I was, I would say "human."
