Chinese is used to refer to people from China, while Korean is used to refer to the people from Korea. Both nations are Asian countries. They are different people with different languages, backgrounds, cultures, looks, and so on.

When you see a Chinese man or woman, you will be able to identify them immediately because they have rounded faces and their looks depend largely on what part they originate from, coupled with the Asian look while the Koreans often appear with small eyes and nose.

The Chinese culture is known as one of the oldest cultures, while Korean history has been viewed to have originated from the Chinese culture. There is a total difference in how they speak and sound. Their handwriting is different, and the style of dressing for each country is unique. Both countries have a great and flourishing economy.

There are a lot of differences between the Chinese and Korean people. One of the ways to differentiate between Chinese and Korean people is by considering their physical differences. Although there are certain common physical features between Chinese and Korean people, however, there are still some differences between them.

For instance, Chinese people have bigger eyes and smaller noses than Koreans. Koreans also have smoother skin compared to the Chinese. Another difference can be noticed when you compare their culture. The Chinese culture is believed to be the older of the two.

In fact, there are researches that showed how Korean culture had been influenced by Chinese culture. Another basic difference between the two is their language. The Chinese have more sounds attached to a word, and they struggle to pronounce the letter R. In contrast, the Koreans do not struggle when pronouncing the letter R.

Koreans and Chinese are people of Asian countries. Koreans are the citizens of both South Korea and North Korea and are believed to have come from the ancient Korean peninsula. Koreans speak in a language which is referred to as Hangul, which is an old traditional and respected language since the 15th century, and until then, Koreans spoke in Chinese. Interestingly enough, Koreans are notorious for their offbeat sense of humor, which is often revealed in their art and culture.

On the other hand, Chinese is a term that is used to refer to both the people of Asian countries as well as the accepted language that is spoken. The proper name for the Chinese language is called mandarin. The Chinese have smaller eyes and a flatter face than Korean people. Also, the Chinese are well recognized for their consistent work ethic and laid-back attitudes.
