    Yeah...it's obviously Japanese....

    Korean alphabets have circles....and Japanese is a lil bit curvy.... which make both writing systems different than Chinese...

    hey...you need not to be sorry..... I cant differentiate between Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Tamil, Malayalam alphabets....

    the only reason why we Malaysians can differentiate between Chinese, Korean and Japanese languages is because we're exposed to those languages....

    heck...we can even differentiate a Japanese, a Korean and a Chinese physically....just by looking at their heights and skin colours...
