    well i meant alot of china's culture is use by the vietnamese. i don't know much about vietnam.but i read the hoa is a big ethnic in vietnam who are Chinese who immigrated to Vietnam during the Qing Dynasty and Republic of China period. but the reason i ask is i can't choose between having my main character be half-chinese or half-vietnamese. his dad is american. so i'm trying to figure away to have him be both chinese and vietnamese in his mom's side without having her be half-vietnamese and half-chinese.

    wow おたべちゃん i didn't know that i didn't think china started it's own nation state. i always thought japan was found different since i know they had a big fight with each other. but i do know vietnam and philippines can speak and understand english. i don't really understand the history of hoas. like i said earlier '' are Chinese who immigrated to Vietnam during the Qing Dynasty and Republic of China period.'' like how do i have my main character's mom family be from vietnam but have her family be chinese too. because my main character's parents meet in vietnam during the vietnam war. but in the series the main character goes to live with his billionaire grandpa (from her mom's side of the family) in america.
