I have recently noticed that many popular actors/actresses in Hong Kong are either half white or look white.. for example Cecilia Cheng or the infamous Edison Chen.

And many rich people marry Chinese who are half white.

Lets face it Chinese people find white features attractive.. why don't they just admit it and marry white women instead of just marrying someone who looks white.   For example.. Richard Li the son of the richest man in Hong Kong had a son with Isabella Leong who is predictably.. half white.

Thats a reason but not a good one,  a false notion of superiorty.  As it happens i dont like my white skin and so many Brits spend so much time out in the sun trying to get tanned.

I can't understand why Asian women should feel less attractive than white woman. I like Asian women and many other white guys feel the same way. When I lived in the S.F. Bay Area there were lots of Asian girls there and I saw many mixed couples.

Its just a fashion thing; it might change as/if Chinese culture becomes more prominent. Peoples tastes change as society changes.

Cecilia Cheng, Edison Chen, etc, etc all look white or half white to you?
To me they don't look white at all, not even half white.
They look Chinese, fully Chinese.
And there're many people in China who look like of all these popular 'half white' actors/actresses, but they're fully Chinese with no white ancestry.
Or do you mean all good looking Chinese look white ???
How about we say all good looking westerners look Chinese??
E.g. Catherine Zeta Jones.
Please don't shoot, I'm just a babe.
