    Which is correct?

    Hello, everyone!
    Please read these sentences below.

    a. He looks like a Japanese.
    b. He looks like Japanese.

    Which is correct, a. or b.?

    'He' is a singular pronoun, so it would be safer to say 'a Japanese.'
    However, I think...'I'm Japanese' (instead of saying 'I'm a Japanese) is correct.
    If so, b. is also acceptable, I guess.

    Please help me.
    Thank you in advance!

    Hi tzfujimino,
    a. He looks like a Japanese.
    b. He looks Japanese.

    These are correct.
