One of our family friends is half Cambodian. You`d never know it if he didn`t tell you... And there is one half Thai child and one half Filipino child in my son`s school. You`d also never know it if you weren`t told.
I think Asia as a whole has alot of variety with Korea being the only exception
and its quite a fallacy to think a halfie with a SEAsian parent is always going to be in the darker end of normal....
