Do chinese people have facial hair?
I am not trying to be racist. I am just wondering that I saw in a chinese TV serial that the main character who shaves only has like a hairs above his lip and under his chin. I am wondering if most chinese are that way or do they have full facial hair. Just curious.
Yeah, I know the political differences between the two countries, but I mean like facial features, height, etc... The answer is "Yes", quite a difference in fact. First major difference, the eyes. Chinese people tend to have slanted eyes or smaller eyes with epicanthic folds, but most Taiwanese have large eyes and don't have the epicanthic fold, like myself.
