Hit the nail on the head. Why bother with such a long distance relationship when there are a couple million mixed Asians already living here? If I was single and looking for an Asian in Asia, I wouldn't settle for a "hafu" or whatever else they are called.

1st one has some Asian look, but the 2nd one doesnt look Asian...more like Mexican or something.

I don't look like a typical Filipino and I am married to a European. People don't usually think we are a mixed couple when we are outside.
What pics ?




Or the other way around ?
It's normal Filipinos are diverse, they can look Malay or Hispanic.

if you really want to know, please browse through this thread (if you're that smart and inquisitive) to see articles proving such. you can even look at youtube on before and after looks of a lot of korean women after surgery. since you're demanding proofs, please take the time to research through this thread. OR, much better yet, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH. you'll see that for yourself

Not many can pass as Indian...

Aren't you ethnically Spanish or something, or just mixed? Like 50/50?

Getting back on topic, I don't know if this has been addressed already, but how prevalent is plastic surgery in South Korea outside of Seoul? I've read some topics on this, and seems like most of the plastic surgery clinics are centered in Gangnam District. What about in Busan, Incheon, and other smaller places? I also happened upon a website that said some TV show in S. Korea made fun of the Miss Korea contest, saying how all the women looked like copies of each other. But, I want to know the real story, because the (Western) media has a habit of blowing things out of proportion.

Side note: I thought Hyuna looked cute enough without plastic surgery. Now she looks like a weird hybrid of Korean with Chinese eyes with a Japanese double eyelid and a Japanese nose.

Mostly gangnam area. Best surgeons are there. You take risk if you go anywhere else.

No talking about Hyuna of Wonder Girls. She's the same woman who also appears in Psy's videos.
