Keep in mind as a whole Korean women are not to curvy and Korean men not exactly broad . Its a different built.

Seoul is very pretty unreal bus service and spotless. Magnificent furniture but not cheap .
When I went to Malaysia, I was by far the largest person there. Let's put it this way, I was mortified trying on a bikini bottom. Now, I've heard that in some areas of asia, don't know where specifically, maybe China, the obesity rate is rising. Why? Because of the influx of western fast food restaurants, KFC is apparently huge there. Now THAT is embarrassing, seeing our fatness spread to other countries.

I strongly believe in stereotypes as being true in most cases. While there is a share of Asians who are fat, sloppy, criminal and lazy, they are few and far between. Asians are the model immigrants. Every statistic about their demographics will tell you so.
In all fairness: it is much harder to cross the oceans (both legally and illegally) than simply 'jump our southern border' so that separates the wheat from the chaff immediately.

No one is holding a gun to the locals' heads to eat our style food.

There is a direct relationship between population density and obesity. In countries (or cities) with a high pedestrian rate, they are thinner, regardless of diet. Cultures that still have a high level of physical labor are thinner also. If one looks back a hundred years, diets were probably worse than today. Meat, dairy, etc. were the norm. The difference was the amount of physical activity of the average person then versus now.

In the United States, the thinnest people are those in "active areas". These include Colorado and New Mexico, as well as parts of the Pacific Northwest where outdoor activity is an important part of life. Those living in NYC are overall less obese compared to those living in other large cities. The regional diets of the PNW and the SW are generally healthier than the midwest and south.

The fattest live in the South. This has been attributed to both the horrible climate (too hot to do anything) as well as the regional preference for frying everything.
