He doesn't look very Korean to me. He looks more Chinese than Korean but there is this hint to him that feels very Vietnamese or Filippo, so those are one of the races I would be inclined to think he is.

Just because the film makers, Purchase Brothers, are Canadians, I am guessing he is Chinese. Just Chinese are the largest Asian minority group in Canada at 4.6%. While Filipino is at 1.4% and other Asian groups don't register over 1%.

I reckon he's Canadian. Looks a bit like Donnie Yen.

When you say canadian, do you mean a white canadian or an asian born in canada?

Canadian is a nationality not a race.

he's definitely Chinese Canadian, according to his last name and the fact that he works with the Purchase Bros.
