Why do many Asian cultures have similar portrayal of female ghost (e.g. tall, long black hair, etc.)

    There is in the Hmong culture. They are called poj ntxoog. They are souls that have not crossed over or are lost. They live mainly in wooded or abandoned places, and eat warms and insects.Traditionally Asian women have long black hair and are quite slender. Also being skinny meant that they didn't eat enough food and thus ghosts tend to be skinny. White is the colour of death and funeral. All people have to go to hell after death, then go through reincarnation towards a new life. The funeral and ensuing rituals facilitate the process. If there is such thing, the dead's soul is still on earth and called ghost.

    The woman in White Ghost is actually a global Phenomenon because there are also sightings of her in Europe and the Americas. They all fit the same description, Long black hair and a white dress.

    I have a Theory though. The woman in White is not a Ghost, she is an alien that uses modern technology.
