Koreans look black and white people ?


There were dolmens and Germanic Caucasian Population Settlements in North Korea. North Koreans are Germanic Caucasian Settlers of R1B from the bronze age. 43% of North Koreans are genetically proven to have R1B which is similar to the amount of 40~50% R1A in India and the Middle East. 

"The dominant people in Japan are evidently a mixed race, in which the Aino element is but slightly represented. According to the prepossession of observers, they have been affiliated to various stocks; but although Whitney and Morton regard them as members of the Caucasic family, most anthropologists class them with the Mongol race of Siberia and East Asia. Ethnologists have attempted to describe the characteristic Japanese type. But although at first sight few differences are detected, foreigners residing in the country soon begin to distinguish two distinct types, which correspond partly to two social classes, and which the native artists have at all times reproduced and even exaggerated. These types are those of the peasants and the aristocracy. The features of the peasant approach nearest to those of the East Asiatic peoples. He has the same broad, flat face, crushed nose, low brow, prominent cheek bones, half open mouth, small black and oblique eyes. The nobles are distinguished by their lighter complexion, more pliant and less vigorous body, more elongated head, elevated brow and oval face. The cheek bones are but slightly prominent, the nose aquiline, mouth small, eyes very small and apparently oblique.

On the whole, the Japanese face, with its olive complexion, lozenge shape and receding brow, is far from answering to the Western ideal of beauty, and to most foreigners seems decidedly plain."

"The average Chinaman, considered as belonging to this assumed Mongolic type, is represented as of low stature, somewhat symmetrical form, although occasionally inclined to obesity, especially in the north, with round face, high cheek bones, broad flat features, small nose, small oblique black eyes, coarse black hair, scant beard, yellow, brown, or even light complexion, according to the climate."

"The Koreans are in general rather taller than the Chinese and Japanese. Robust and extremely laborious, they are considered excellent workmen in the ports open to Japanese trade, and in the agricultural settlements of Russian Manchuria. The accounts of missionaries and travellers are so contradictory that it seems impossible to form any precise idea of their main physical characteristics. They certainly offer a great variety of types, extending from that usually described as Mongolian to those of Europeans and Malays. One of the extremes, which may be called the continental Asiatic, is distinguished by broad features, prominent cheek bones, oblique eyes, small nose, lost as it were in the fulness of the cheeks, thick lips, scant beard, coppery complexion. Another, which may be called the "insular" type, and of which natives of Liu-kiu Archipelago would seem to be the purest representatives, is characterized by oval features, prominent nose, protruding teeth always visible between the half-open lips, tolerably well-furnished beard, and delicate skin, approaching in complexion to the almost greenish Malay tint. Many are noted for their light chestnut hair and blue eyes, a trait nowhere else observed in the extreme East, except perhaps amongst the aborigines of the Nan-shan uplands in South China. But for the speech and costume, one might often fancy one's self surrounded by Europeans."

"It is a prevalent idea that the Coreans are Chinese, and therefore exactly like them in physique and appearance, and, if not like the Chinese, that they must be like their neighbours on the other side - the Japanese. As a matter of fact, they are like neither. Naturally the continuous incursions of both Chinese and Japanese into this country have left distinct traces of their passage on the general appearance of the people; and of course, the distinction which I shall endeavour to make is not so marked as that between whites and blacks, for the Coreans, speaking generally, do bear a certain resemblance to the other peoples of Mongolian origin. Though belonging to this family, however, they form a perfectly distinct branch of it. Not only that, but when you notice a crowd of Coreans you will be amazed to see among them people almost as white and with features closely approaching the Aryan, these being the higher classes in the kingdom. The more common type is the yellow-skinned face, with slanting eyes, high cheek-bones, and thick, hanging lips. But again, you will observe faces much resembling the Thibetans and Hindoos, and if you carry your observations still further you will find all over the kingdom, mostly among the coolie classes, men as black as Africans, or like the people of Asia Minor.

For any one interested in types and crosses, I really do not know of a country more interesting than Chosen. It seems as if specimens of almost every race populating Asia had reached and remained in the small peninsula, which fact would to some degree disprove the theory that all migrations have moved from the east towards the west and from the north to south, and never vice versa.

If you take the royal family of Corea, for instance, you will find that the king and queen, and all the royal princes, especially on the queen's side, are as white as any Caucasian, and that their eyes are hardly slanting at all, and in some cases are quite as straight as ours. Members of some of the nobler families might be taken for Europeans. Of course the middle classes are of the Mongolian type, though somewhat more refined and stronger built than the usual specimens of either Chinese or Japanese."

Corea or Cho-sen, the land of the morning calm
Henry Savage Landor

"The Corean is of taller stature than the Japanese, seldom, however, exceeding five and a half feet in measure, of a strong and vigorous make, symmetrically built, robust, and nimble. His features bear in general the stamp of the Mongolian race - in the broad coarse cast of them, the prominent cheek-bones, the heavy jaw, the flat and crushed root of the nose, and wide nostrils, the rather large mouth with thick lips, the peculiar, apparently oblique formation of the eyes, the close, thick, stout, blackish hair frequently tinged with red, the thick eyebrows, the thin beard, and a reddish-yellow, wheaten complexion, give him, at first sight, the appearance of a native of north-eastern Asia. This type is peculiar to the majority of the Coreans observed by me. The characteristic marks of two distinct races are, however, plainly discernible in their features. Whenever the root of the nose is more lofty, the nose itself is more straight-backed, the cast of features shows a nearer approach to the type of the Caucasian race, and the formation of the eye resembles more that of Europeans. In this case the cheek-bones recede, and the marked profile, which the Mongolian race does not possess, becomes more apparent.

I had an opportunity to see during my travels in the country bore an expression so noble and so marked, that they might have passed for Europeans, had they been dressed after our fashion. This was also most strikingly observant in a great number of children, whose handsome, regular features, rosy skin, blue eyes, and auburn hair really made it so difficult to distinguish them from European children, that at first I could not account for their looks but by believing them to be of European descent - an impression which had, of course, to be abandoned as altogether false and erroneaous after penetrating farther into the interior, when appearances of the same nature became of daily occurrence."
