(TEST YOURSELF) Asian people have many distinct features that make them look the way they do, but Asian eyes in particular may be the most recognizable. It is perhaps the most referenced physical attribute for Asian people. But what exactly makes an eye look Asian, and is the stereotypical small and slanted version accurate? In this video I go over the different types of Asian eyes - from the epicanthic fold varieties to eyelid crease specifics. Single eyelids (monolid), double eyelid, demi eyelid, hooded eyelid, puffy eyelid, we cover it all! At the end, I check to see what kind of Asian eye I have! Note: The epicanthic fold is also known as epicanthal fold, epicanthus, Mongolian fold, plica palpebronasalis and palpebronasal fold.

15 Strange Things That Seem Normal Only In South Korea

South Korea is a dream travel destination for many, an absolutely fantastic culture, a country of contrasts, where modern technologies and ancient Eastern traditions harmoniously combine into something totally unique in and of itself. Every journey to this amazing country reveals countless new secrets and mysteries. These crazy yet amazing facts South Korea might astonish you. Photo credits: https://m.pikabu.ru/profile/AdaKwon (2:57, 3:49, 4:41, 7:44) People in Korea really love practical gifts like this and especially ones that can be eaten. For example, management at one South Korean company presented their employees with food baskets. The Korean New Year usually takes place in January or February, depending on the time of the second new moon after the winter solstice. South Korea is home to the most visited church in the world with a parish consisting of over 1 million people a year. There's an established gift-giving culture in Korea with certain rules. For example, big gifts to teachers or public officials are considered bribes. And when somebody visits your home in this country, you can be sure that they’ll bring a drink, dessert, or fruit. In Seoul, there's a subway train dedicated to a comedy animated series called “Larva”. It runs on the green line 8 times a day and features two of the cartoon’s main characters in every car. Koreans are not very familiar with Western traditions, and they don't even have geography at school. At the same time, they'd be happy to tell you anything you want to know about K-pop singers and bands.

You need to be attentive, and when you see the bus you need, you have to signal for it to stop. -In the majority of Korean supermarkets, there are unlimited samples for you to test. -A traditional gift at a housewarming party is a few rolls of toilet paper. -Koreans celebrate “Seollal”, or “New Year”, for 3 days: the day before, on, and after the New Year. -Each kindergarten has a specific uniform in a certain color so that kids don't get lost in the crowd during fieldtrips and walks around the city. -About 4 times a year, big churches arrange free visits to dentists and hairstylists for their parish. -Elementary students have classes from 9 AM to 6 PM, middle-schoolers go home at 10 PM, and high-schoolers sometimes have to study until one in the morning. -Couples use social media to brag, have cute little celebrations every 100 days, and even arrange romantic vacations almost every month and display their “in-love” status with the help of matching outfits. -South Korean parents and children like to show their gratitude to a teacher by giving them candy or a cup of coffee. -There are lots of themed subway cars dedicated to certain cartoon characters. -Koreans practically never listen to music or watch movies from other countries. -Modern Korean cuisine is really healthy. They usually eat grilled meat (without oil), a lot of vegetables and plants, and rice. -You won’t find any trash bins on the streets in South Korea because the people there are super tidy. -Office workers are now required, by law, to turn off their computers on Friday evening.

If you were offended by that, this video is probably not what you think. Everyone has their own opinions of what constitutes as attractive. But I’m not necessarily talking about ‘attractiveness’ here; I’m talking about ‘cuteness’. Cuteness is a term describing a type of attractiveness commonly associated with youth and appearance. It’s also a scientific concept. So when I say ‘Asians are cuter’, well, they arguably are; and that’s including males, not just females. Now, compared to adults, common features for infants across all ethnic groups include larger heads, flatter faces, reduction of the brow ridge, hairlessness, thinner bones, reduced muscle mass, smaller physical size, shorter arms, shorter legs, just to name a few - and of course this is largely why people find babies cute. If they didn’t have these features and proportions, they’d more so resemble miniature adults and that’s kind of creepy. The video covers: - Neoteny in East Asians - How retention of neotenous, childlike traits relate to ethnicity - Neoteny in humans in general - Sexual attraction to neotenous traits - Asian fever vs Cuteness fever - Neotenous features vs Non-neotenous features - Gene Mutations that gave East Asians their distinctive appearance - Neoteny's role in sexual selection - Are small and slanted stereotypical 'Asian Eyes' neotenous? - Japan's kawaii culture (South Korea & China as well) - Psychological neoteny - Logan Paul's immature antics - & more! - Special thanks to our sponsor, East Meet East.

(PART 1: AUSTRALIA & AFRICA) Asia is the largest of all continents, covering an area of 44,579,000 square kilometres, that's 30% of the Earth's total land area. It has given rise to many of the world's first civilizations, and has long been home to the majority of the human population. But have you ever wondered what actually counts as Asia? Where exactly are the borders? Do they sit nicely in between countries, or can a country be divided? This video is part one of a three part series. We cover the specific Asian borders following the coastal regions from the Tumen River between North Korea & Russia to the Suez Canal in Egypt. In between, we go over Japan's Bonin (Ogasawara) Islands, the Malay Archipelago, Indonesia's border with Papua New Guinea, the Wallace Line, the Weber Line, Asian continental shelf, the Middle East, Yemen's Socotra Archipelago, Afro-Eurasia, Egypt's border, and more. Part two will cover the messy Europe Asia border, Russia's continental status, and the North America Asia border that isn't as simple as you might think.

'ASIAN EYES' ARE MORE COMMON THAN YOU THINK

The stereotypical Asian eye - the ones that are small, slanted and often with a monolid (single eyelid). These can ONLY be seen in Asians.


...ok, not exactly true.

Just like how there are Asian people who have larger, non-squinty eyes; there also exist white people or black people who do have these squinty, Asiatic eyes.

But just how common is it among non-Asian people, and why do they even have it?

In this video, I'll get into the different countries and ethnic groups from all over the world that you may not expect to have this characteristic.

There will also be examples from some well-known celebrity faces!

If you want to find out what kind of 'Asian Eyes' you have, click our previous video on the topic. In it, we cover the truth behind apparent slanted eyes or small Asian eyes, hooded eyes (common in Caucasian eyes), as well as the different types of Asian epicanthic folds (epicanthal fold).
