I've noticed some Japanese who look SEA. I've actually been noticing a lot of Japanese girls who look like my sister. I notice a lot of them in Vietnam, Laos, Philippines, but not so much in China. She's usually mistaken for Filipino.

Anyway, I hope this thread goes back to discussing Asian men in general not just Filipinos and not just the Caucasian Asians.

Many of the Japanese movie stars, I notice, look more European than many everyday Japanese.
Maybe those Japanese stars are also mixed ? Or operated or contact lenses.

Well its a known fact, that when Alexander made the long trip to India, on his way back most of his soldiers did not want to go back. They did not want to make that long trip back home. So most of them settled in India. Also the prize of war in those days were women (if you know what i mean! )!! So the northern Indians are so visibly different from the Southern one's. Coz Alexander never made it to the south!

But again the DNA is dilute!

No they're not mixed. Some Japanese people just look that way. And no, if a super-oriental looking asian person has blue contacts they'll still look super oriental. Why can't you just accept some of them do look sort of European? You seem sort of anti-Asian.

I am not just talking about contacts that make the eyes change in different colour but contacts that make eyes bulge and make it really big. These contacts are very popular in Korea and Japan. They wear these contacts a lot and dye their hair blond.
I am not anti asian I just haven't met the ones that look Euro. Why don't you post pictures so I will get an idea ?

Oh I see...

Well this guy for instance:

I mean at quick glance you could almost mistake him for a dark featured Caucasian, although you'll probably dismiss it.

Japanese have heavy Ainu/Jomon ancestry and many regular Japanese look mixed with European. Sometimes the mixture makes them look Southeast Asian, Polynesian, or even Hispanic.
