Welcome to the thread, this is a thread to help each other and learn more on Asian Cultures or how to characters etc.
Feel free to drop facts or stereotypes.
Asia and it’s countries
Asia has many different countries. I’m going to split it up to South Asia, Southeast Asia and East Asia. (The Arab countries also are part of Asia, but there is a thread dedicated to it.)
South Asia: India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
Southeast Asia: Brunei, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore and Timor-Leste.
East Asia: Japan, (North and South) Korea, China, Mongolia, Macau and Taiwan.
There is a lot of mistakes regarding the names like you see a Japanese character has a name like Ling Ling Huang.
Feel free to ask questions! As well as discussing your culture because I’m sure we all have space to learn more about different cultures! :))
P.S. (As I am not representive for all cultures, I can only speak on the cultures I have an understanding of. I will give my opinion on certain topics.)
(If by any means, I offend you, I didn’t mean to, so sorry in advance.)
To clear some stereotypes/confusions:
Not all Asian’s have monolids. There are Asians with double eyelids as well. Yes, it is common to have monolids in Asia, BUT there are some with double eyelids too. (Correct me if I’m wrong.)
Not all Asian’s are smart. I feel like this is a misunderstanding, as I have seen this but no matter who you are, anyone can be smart.
”You all look the same.” I’ve heard this a lot but, there is a lot more countries than China. There is Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Japan, Thailand etc…
As always, please be respectful to everyone.
There is more stereotypes about cultures, so feel free to drop some more down below. (I might drop some more stereotypes later.)
