    Korean language vs. Korean race

    The term 'Korean' refers to an ethnicity, not a race. For the unique racial blend that constitutes the Korean ethnicity there is, as to my knowledge, no scientifically ugreed upon term. If yet there exists such a term, it would be certainly misleading.

    Tungid is a Siberian race. A percentage of Koreans are a subtype of Nordsinid called the Chosunid which has an Ainu-type admixture. However the migration of Korean speakers into the peninsula brought in the Tungid type. The earlier Korean natives partly Koreanised and partly migrated to Japan (Choshu type) so modern Koreans are a mixed NE Asian Mongoloid stock.
