Guess the ethnicity, part 2 - Spot the Eurasian!

Ok, see how you do with this. The last Can you guess their ethnicity post I did was a bit tricky, so I'm making it easier for you this time.

Have a look at the 11 pictures below. Some of them are Eurasian, having one Caucasian parent. Some of them are "pure" Asian (whatever you take that to mean). And 2 of them are complete red herrings, who are not Asian at all. (Just to keep things interesting.) Remember though that Asia is a big continent with a wide range of people - not everyone is going to look Chinese.

Shouldn't be too hard, especially considering they are all famous people (at least in their own part of the world). I'll provide the answers in the comments section.












How'd you do?

    Ok, I know it wasn't the question.

    I tried to guess correct answers, but I failed a big time. That's because I don't have any experience with non-white people (does this sound harsh?) I mean, I live in 100% white country, and I don't have money to travel (yes, it sucks).
