Their physical characteristics included fair skin and smaller eyelids. Japanese whose family could date back to the very beginning, are mostly found in the northernmost and southernmost parts of the country. They're typically darker-skinned with large, double-lid eyes.
Well of course all Japanese came from elsewhere, if the single-origin theory of humanity is true. Even the Ainu are relatively recent to Japan in the grand scheme of things.

I couldn't believe how incredibly narcisstic so many people in South Korea were when I visited a couple of years ago. Seoul was the worst, go to use a public toilet, guaranteed a line of guys just standing in the mirror fixing their hair for a good 10 minutes. Same deal on subway platforms, because they have the big glass barriers, prime location for men and women, young and old, to stare at themselves non stop, like they were held in a trance of their own looks. It was really off putting, and like nothing I've experienced before.

It could be argued that the standard is so strict that many resort to plastic surgery to achieve it.

2. Philippines: Most Filipinos seem to agree that those with mixed heritage, especially with Spanish or Chinese heritage, are more attractive than native unmixed ones. These features are typically concentrated among the upper and elite class.

3. Cambodia: Light skin tone is highly valued but is more common among foreign immigrants and those mixed with them rather than native Khmer Cambodians.

4. Thailand: Luk khrueng, those with mixed Thai and other origins particularly European and Chinese, are considered highly attractive in Thai culture and enjoy numerous advantages in media. A good deal of Thais in Bangkok have foreign admixture while the ones in Northeastern and Southern Thailand less so and are deemed less desirable.

5. India: European features are likely preferable to Dravidian ones from what I've experienced.

6. China: I'm no expert but the ideal Chinese beauty appears to require a specific set of gene combination to achieve in particular the "melon seed face".

7. Vietnam: Pale skin is desirable but difficult to achieve living in a tropical climate. Nutritional demands remains a bottleneck for many.

8. Japan: Makeup is a necessity but the standards are achievable by many with enough money and time.

Light skin Indians do not even resemble White Europeans. Light skin Indians tend to resemble Iraqis and Iranians for example, in other words they tend to look Middle Eastern.

To answer the original question, The main landers are the most unrealistic.
