Really there's only two pure races as far as I can see. The mongol stock which is much of Korean, Japan and Northern Chinese, and the Austronesian who lived in Asia much earlier. Eventually these two races meet, fight, intermingle and have sex. The further north you go, the more mongol blood you find. The further south you go, the more Austronesian blood you see.

Not that simple.
For example, Tibetans look like neither of those.

Many Tibetans and southwestern Chinese have big eyes on the one hand, and high nose ridges on the other hand. Mongols have a very wide face, butmany northern Chinese have a narrow face.

That's because Tibetan lies close to central asia so they obtained some of the Caucasian features as exhibited by people of that region.

Again, not that simple.

For example, 50% Tibetans belong to Y-DNA haplogroup D. However, almost nobody is D is Europe. There are many D people in Japan (another subgroup compared to Tibetans). Han Chinese have a very low frequency of D as well, but it is higher among Koreans.

Some theory says "old Asians" moved to isolated places such as Tibet, Korea, Mongolia and Japan when "advanced people" entered East Asia (mainly China).

Tibetans don't have big eyes at all. They look like N.Chinese and Mongolians.

It depends on which tribe, I suppose.

Haha, anyway these are the topics I created in other forum.(which I expected you to go register account over there too)

Comparison of average look/physical appearance of every national in Southeast Asia - General Discussion - China History Forum, Chinese History Forum

Comparison of average look/physical appearance of Southeast Asian of every nation - AsianFanatics Forum

I don't find a single poster mention something like "Vietnamese are the most East Asian in Southeast Asia" lol (with an exception of "new accounts" which are created by Vietnamese nationalists in order to promote their race)

So yes, not a single person thinks that Vietnamese physically look East Asian when they see the actually comparison of physical appearance.(In fact it obviously that the Lao and Thai obviously does look more East Asian than Vietnamese)

The only reason that some ignorant(who grouping people based on their cultural aspect) tent to stereotype that Vietnamese are related with East Asian is because Vietnamese are participating East Asian culture(due to 1000 years of Han-Chinese occupation).

That is it, all is due to the "culture". Nothing else, not origin, not history, not race, not language, not physically look.

(same thing as when that same group of ignorant stereotypes Filipino are related to Hispanics and stereotypes that Indonesian/Malaysian are related to Arabs. While in reality aside from "culture" Filipino has nothing related to Hispanics and Indonesian/Malaysian has nothing related to Arabs in any other aspects such as origin, history, race, language, physically appearance.

Indonesian/Malaysian don't look like Arab but look like Austronesian-Islander. Filipino also doesn't look like Hispanics but look like Austronesian-Islander.)
Maybe you'll get surprise to some of our national teams. technically, all of us has Austronesian origin but don't be surprise if you see some of our national teams that doesn't look like majority or common to Southeast Asians. Philippines granted dual citizenship to anyone who has Filipino heritage and allow them to play for National team but in the Philippines we do have Native born Filipinos in the Philippines that may look like them too and they can play for our team it's either they belong to major or minorities as long as you have Filipino passport.

But wait, some people from Indonesia has the look of facial and body postures of different and unusual.
I think you were surprised and said oh really this are Indonsians? I do not believe, this is crazy!!!
