Among Asian people, natural bright skin races, Chinese, Japanese and Koreans look sooo alike, lots of Hollywood films often annoy lots of Asians by understandably mistakes of Asian roles, since they just put a Korean guy in a role of Chinese or Chinese women go ways of Japanese old ladies. We see the same things on Thai media that any Canadian could sit in a role of a British soldier. Any look can be messed on the films but the Asian looks can’t mess Thais.
