    He does not loook Korean to me, he looks Chinese.
    Getting an Engineering degree, I interacted with so many Asians that I learned to tell differences between them.

    Also, most immigration to Hawaii from the Far East occurred many years ago.
    I would not be surprised if his Graandfather or Great Garndfather were born in Hawaii.

    I highly doubt even if his family was North Korean he would compete (or be able to) for that shitty disorganized communist team.
    They might be disorganized, but I would think you would have to admit they have some good wrestlers.

    I call bullshit on that one. Most Asian people can not even tell the difference.

    there are differences but some are very subtle and most of the time you can't tell the difference between Chinese, Japanese or Korean.

    take the test and let us know how you do.

    yes and if they were more organized they would be one of the best countries in the world. There is no question they have some of the best wrestlers in the world. their politics interferes too much with their athletics. it's really a shame.

    Heh, I didn't say it wasn't a fairly popular name in other ethnic groups as well, simply said it was the 2nd most popular Korean last name.

    Probably the 1960's, but I don't know for sure.
