#1 That makes no sense. South Korean troops will be a head taller than the locals, the Americans taller yet -- not to mention clearly not Asian -- it would be a highly risky exercise, surely.

#2 I once had a cousin who was nearly full-blooded native American. After he joined the Army (decades ago), he somehow learned to speak fluent Korean. He did mention parachuting out of a C-47 during his service, but it was on fire. He was a bit on the tall side for his time. Another cousin's wife, this one 100% Korean, said he could have passed.
