As a fellow asian, I do get annoyed that they can't seem to cast a appropriate ethnic actor for the role.

Garret Wang plays a Korean character
Linda Park plays a Japanese character

Was it really hard to find a character with appropriate ethnicity to play said role or even rename the character to have appropriate ethnicity?
Do you feel the same way about the actors/characters of European origin mentioned in the previous posts? How about the African American Nichelle Nichols playing an African?
